    Description

    Robert Crumb - Unpublished "Eggs Ackley Among the Vulture Demonesses" Story Page 1 Original Art (1976). A third installment of the saga of Eggs Ackley was planned, and one page was completed. Unfortunately, it was the only page ever completed! This first page of the proposed story sets up the tale as Eggs Ackley has defeated the Queen of the Vulture Demonesses -- only to find himself accepted as the creatures' new ruler. But "uneasy lies the head that wears the crown," like that Shakespeare guy once said. Underground Comix master Crumb really outdoes himself here -- from the opening title card, through the stirrings of palace intrigues. This page is definitive of the Underground attitude. Ink on Bristol board, with an image area of 8" x 12.25". Light toning. Excellent condition.
