    Description

    Twenty Drawings by S. Clay Wilson Portfolio (Abington Book Shop, 1968). This infamous portfolio of prints was produced by Wilson's friend Charley Plymell, from when they were both still living in Kansas. As just about every collector of Underground Comix knows, it's nearly impossible to find, but this particular copy is a bit more interesting than most. Written on the inside of the gray folder holding the prints, in ink, is "From the Collection of S. Clay Wilson," dated 9/5/78, and including a small two-color drawing of the Checkered Demon's smiling face, with a word balloon that says, "That's Right." It's in Wilson's unmistakable handwriting. The front of the folder includes the "Pirate" paste-on print, which has become stained from the glue used, and the folder spine is partially split (the folders were all printed on unstable paper stock that tend to fall apart with handling); it's in Good condition. The 20 prints inside are in Excellent condition, and the original copyright/price sheet insert is included. Please remember to support the S. Clay Wilson Special Need Trust online to help this legendary artist, who has been in poor health for years. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide GD 2.0 value = $800; FN 6.0 value = $2,400. From the Eric Sack Collection.
