    Morse's Funnies #1 First Version with Signed Certificate of Authenticity (Albert Morse, 1974) Condition: VF. The original 15 page issue, signed by Albert Morse on the front cover, with art printed on one side of 8.5" x 11" card stock. The artist line-up includes the cream of the Underground cartoonists, with the famous cover by Robert Crumb, and pages by Simon Deitch, Larry Todd, Trina Robbins, Dan O'Neill, Ken Barteleme, Bobby London, Dave Sheridan, Art Spiegelman, Gary Hallgren, Ted Richards, Patricia Moodian, Sharon Rudahl, and Toby Cleyman. The four-page COA is also signed by Morse, and gives a brief history of the book, which was complied and published by Albert to hand out to friends and clients.
