    Description

    Leslie Cabarga Yellow Dog Preliminary Cover Original Original Artwork (The Print Mint Inc., 1973). A thematic design for a comic book that never happened: Yellow Dog, one of the seminal Underground titles, ceased publication after a 25th issue -- but not for want of trying on the part of publisher Don Schencker. The poet and rock-poster merchant had charted a course for Yellow Dog at least through #28, which is the issue this partially realized image would have graced. Cabarga completed principal figure inking in addition to the basic blue-line pencilling, and he rough-sketched a color scheme (in crayon) on a Vellum overlay. A fascinating look into the inner workings of the comics-layout process. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 14.5". Faint toning. Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
