Description

    Robert Crumb XYZ Comics "Girls Girls Girls" Page Original Art (Kitchen Sink, 1972). By 1972, Robert Crumb ("America's Favorite Underground Cartoonist") was getting weary of the entire scene he had, for the most part, created. His ideas for new comic book stories had reached a low point, but he needed to keep cranking them out, rather than sell out to Playboy or some other big corporate types who had been constantly hounding him. So, for XYZ Comics, he locked himself away with his massive collection of 78 rpm records, and he let the music inspire him with each page. His huge sex drive played a part too, as seen in this highly charged page. Here, Crumb draws his ideal female figures, then reduces them down to just the "bare" essentials by the final panel. Crazy! The art is in ink over light graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 8" x 12"; the page is matted to an overall size of 16" x 20". Minor handling wear in the outer borders; Excellent condition. From the Felix Dennis Estate.
