    Robert Crumb Arcade, the Comics Revue #3 Original Art for Charles Bukowski Story (the Print Mint, 1975). Beat poet-author Charles Bukowski inspires Crumb to a high level of storytelling intensity. Teamed by Arcade editors Art Spiegelman and Bill Griffith, Bukowski and Crumb developed a prose nonfiction story, "Bop Bop against That Curtain," into a tour-de-force of Depression-era nostalgia. Here, Bukowski and his neighborhood pals test their reflexes at the pinball machine (Crumb and Bukowski would develop further art-and-story combinations in limited hardcover editions.) Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 5.25" x 4.5", framed out to 10" x 11.5". Excellent condition.
