    Description

    Foo #3 (Animal Town Comics, 1958) Condition: VF-. The third and final issue of Foo! includes a Charles Crumb cover, showing the heavy influence Walt Kelly had on his work. In a perfect world, Charles would have continued his cartooning alongside younger brother Robert, and today both artists would be receiving worldwide attention, but alas, it was not to be. There were to be more issues of Foo; in fact, most of the fourth issue, and a cover for #5 were completed before the boys ran out of steam. For Charles, this would pretty much be the end of the line; of course, we all know what happened to Robert's comics career! This seldom-seen little gem, part of a single-owner set, is the first copy of issue #3 Heritage has offered. It may be a very long time before another copy surfaces, especially one as pretty as this, so get those bids in, Crumb fans!
