    Description

    Robert Crumb Mr. Natural #1 "On the Bum Again" Page 9 Original Art (Apex Novelties, 1970). Here we have one of the most outrageous, over-the-top Crumb pages ever, the final page the first part of a two-part saga, "On the Bum Again" (the second part of the story was featured in Mr. Natural #2). This segment ends with "filthy scum, lowest kind of vermin there is" Mr. Natural behind bars! We hasten to remind you that Crumb has assured us of Big Baby's "over 18" age - and her overgrown size certainly confirms this). Again, she's a grown woman dressed as a baby! The art, drawn in ink and graphite on sketchbook paper, features an image area of approximately 8" x 12", and has been matted and Plexiglas framed to an overall 15.25" x 19.25". The art is in Excellent condition.
