    Robert Crumb - Original Cover for Arcade #1 (Print Mint/ 1975). Uplifting entertainment from an artist synonymous with the Underground art movement, Robert Crumb. This is the original cover art to Arcade, the Comics Revue, which was edited by Art Spiegelman with appearances by Deitch, Green, Griffith, Moscoso, Spiegelman and Spain. A forerunner to the "ground-level" comics movement, this issue represents some of the biggest names in the Underground scene. Crumb's pen and ink tour-de-farce is a rich cavalcade of characters and movement all set before an amusement park. A classic Amazonian Crumb beauty is the central theme that all the insanity revolves around and she is a Crumb archetype with her thick legs and bottom. The Arcade logo is hand-lettered along with an overlay with "No. 1, $1.25" and "Spring 1975" hand-lettered. Art size is approximately 11" x 13". Signed by Crumb.
