DescriptionRobert Crumb Big Ass Comics #2 Cover Original Art (Rip Off Press, 1971). Little guy Eggs Ackley comes out on top in his encounter with the Vulture Demonesses, in this too-crazy-for-words cover art. Big Ass Comics #2 comes at the tail end of R. Crumb's first golden period, and it contained some of his raunchiest work to date. Any 1967-72 cover art by Crumb is a treat, and this one is certainly no exception. The notation "drawn in bed" by his name in the lower right implies he casually knocked this out, but the design and layout are first rate. It's drawn with Robert's beloved mechanical pens in several weights from thin to thick, and a nice solid black masthead with superb display lettering shows the mark of a true professional -- after all, he got his training at the prestigious American Greetings Corporation, drawing greeting cards before turning to Underground Comix. Ink over graphite on paper, with an approximate image area of 8.75" x 12". In Very Good condition, with paper toning and handling wear. From the Felix Dennis Estate.
