    Robert Crumb - Motor City Comics #2 "Lenore Goldberg" Page Original Art (Rip Off Press, 1970). Girl Power! Radical leader of the women's movement Lenore Goldberg finds herself safely tucked away deep in the Canadian woodlands after a nasty incident in Michigan, in this concluding page from the two-part "Lenore Goldberg and Her Girl Commandos" story, serialized in two issues of Robert Crumb's classic Motor City Comics. Crumb always received a lot of heat from feminists over his portrayal of women as sexual objects; here, he turns the tables by giving the girls all the power and glory. While the Lenore stories still contained generous helpings of sex, nudity, and violence, the girls still came out on top, as evidenced by this densely packed page. It all boils down to a sweet ending, as Lenore shows sister Janet her new offspring, Cranberry Sunrise Vishnu Meadow King! This is Crumb at his very best, and a lovely reminder of what the hippie movement was really all about -- peace, love, equality, and communal living. The art was drawn in Crumb's usual mechanical pen style, in india ink on a heavy sketch page measuring 11" x 13.75", with an image area of 8 3/8" x 12.5". The paper is faintly tanned, with a couple of small stains, but overall is in Very Good condition. A fantastic, powerful page, drawn at the peak of his talents, this is one Crumb item not to be missed.
