    Jack Jackson ("Jaxon") Up From the Deep "The Light In the Distance" Partial Story Original Art (Rip Off Press, 1971). Jaxon explores the dread feeling that when he is asleep and dreaming, he will die -- and never come out of his dream state! Powerful stuff, from one of the real masters of the hybrid EC/Underground horror story. Originally printed in color in the UG comic, Up From the Deep; it was later reprinted (in sharp black and white, which the artist preferred), in Optimism of Youth, a collection of Jack's best. This eight page story is missing the sixth page; a full-size photocopy from Jaxon's files has been included. Ink, white-out, and Zipatone screen film on bristol, with an image area of approximately 10" x 15". Two panels have art replacements cut in from behind; both of these have ink sketches on the back. Overall condition Very Good. From the Jack Jackson ("Jaxon") Collection.
