    Jay Lynch Ink and Anguish #1 Unpublished Preliminary Artwork Original Art (c. 2010s). Underground cartoonist Jay Lynch started in the business in early 1960s. This book was intended to be "True tales of the indignities and abuses heaped upon the shoulders of the early Underground Cartoonists by a callous and uncaring Establishment..." It's not all doom and gloom, however. The first story, titled "White Album!" is quite funny. Jay Lynch hand-drew this unfinished prelim as a workbook mock-up for the comic itself. As a result, this is the only copy of this otherwise unpublished gem. The 32-page mock-up contains 20 pages of original art. Also included in the original hand-drawn logo, and a printed cover mock-up with a fake piece of art used just to see how the logo works on the page. This is verified in two hand-written letters from Lynch, also included. The comic pages are folded and stapled just like a comic would be. The front cover is blank. In Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
