    Description

    Howard Cruse - Barefootz Funnies #1 Cover Original Art (Kitchen Sink, 1975). This is one Underground title that, at first glance, seems a little too cute to be "adults only" material! Beyond this innocent cover, there was some risque content. Still, Howard Cruse's clean-line art style seems more suited to children's comic books than the kind of sexually explicit graphics found in the usual line of head-shop comic books. Cruse has gone on to do many projects for Heavy Metal and others, and has won acclaim and awards for his Stuck Rubber Baby, but this is where many of his fans first fell in love with his wonderfully witty art style. These piece measure approximately 14" x 19.5"; the top logo area is a separate piece. Both are matted together to an overall approximate size of 20.5" x 26.5". The art, in Excellent condition, has been signed in pencil at the bottom.
