DescriptionRobert Crumb Inkling Cover Unpublished Original Art (c. 1967). When Robert Crumb walked away from his job at Cleveland's American Greetings Corporation and ventured out to California in January, 1967, he was itching to produce his own comic book, much as he had done as a child, with brother Charles. At first, only covers were completed; this is one of them, done for a comic that was never finished or published. It's a wild cross of Crumb's earlier, "cute" style (including an appearance by Mickey Mouse), and his later, edgier stuff, starring his new character, Mr. Natural and a clanking, beeping robot. The cover, done in markers and colored pencils, has an image area of approximately 8" x 10.5", and is in VG condition, with some light water damage in two areas (including Crumb's signature). It's a rare opportunity to own a piece of color art by R. Crumb, done right before his impending world-wide fame, via Zap Comix #1.
