    Description

    Rick Griffin Zap Comix #2 Complete One-Page Story Original Art (Apex Novelties, 1968). It's weird, it's mysterious, it's... Rick Griffin, in one of his mystifying pages from his first issue of Zap Comix! Poster artist Griffin was one of the first artists asked to join R. Crumb's successful Underground title, and Rick climbed on board with his buddy Victor Moscoso and, fresh from Kansas, S. Clay Wilson, to produce the second issue. Griffin did a number of wigged-out pages for Zap #2; this one (from near the end of the comic) follows the traditional comic-strip format, but without any linear storyline (and not much dialog) to follow. Here then, are the "adventures" of Valhala ("Chapter 2"), Omo Bob, and Oxo Beppo for your enjoyment, filled with trademark Griffin touches, like anthropomorphic eyeballs and floating cheeseburgers. The three inked strips are all on separate pieces of board that have been pasted together onto a 14" x 20" page; the page has some minor soiling and glue stains, but is overall in Excellent condition.
