    Description

    Michael H. Price R. Crumb Comix Authentic Stage Prop -- Single-Page Underground Comix Story Original Art and Original-Cast Recording (Cremo Studios and Hip Pocket Theatre, 1985). Price's collaborations with Underground Comix pioneer Robert Crumb yielded the stage play R. Crumb Comix -- a musical revue of Crumb's stories, from Zap Comix to Weirdo. (The play's history is covered in Jon B. Cooke's The Book of Weirdo, published in 2019.) Crumb drew this original stage-prop comic, of which Price and two theatre artists created approximately 10 backup duplicates for the long and strenuous run of the show. This piece is one of those backup rarities, intact after numerous handlings during the performances. Initialed (lower left) by Price and additional artists Harry Hoggard and Adrian B. Martinez. Accompanied by a factory-sealed CD of the original-cast recording. Marker over graphite on foam-core board. Image area, 11" x 14.5". Light scuffing and handling wear. Excellent condition.
