    Rory Hayes Arcade the Comics Review #4 "Freak Circus" Original Art (Print Mint, 1975). Rory Hayes was a true "outsider" artist who was championed by many of the Underground Comix community. He worked at Gary Arlington's San Francisco Comic Book Store, where artists like Robert Crumb were known to hang out. Very much like Crumb, Hayes grew up creating homemade comic books with his brother. The fact that Rory really couldn't draw was never taken into consideration; his wild imagination made up for his lack of technical skill. Here's a nice, nonsensical half-pager, published as part of the "Sideshow" section in the Underground anthology magazine Arcade the Comics Review. Yes, those mushrooms must be yummy! The art is in ink over graphite on paper, with an image area of 12" x 7.5", and the condition is Excellent. From the Eric Sack Collection.
