    Description

    Robert Crumb and S. Clay Wilson - Gothic Blimp Works #3 Complete One-Page Story "What The F**k" Original Art (East Village Other, 1969). One of the greatest innovations from the "anything goes" Underground cartoonists was the "Jam" strip, where two or more artists would improvise a story, each artist providing a panel or so of art, then turning it over to the next, who would either continue the story line, or take it in a completely different direction. This early page was the work of arguably the two most important artists of the UG movement, Zap Comix pals Robert Crumb and S. Clay Wilson. It's a seldom-seen item from a hard-to-find Gothic Blimp Works tabloid, reprinted only once (in Fantagraphics' Complete Crumb series). Crumb and Wilson worked well together, and their mechanical pen styles complement each other's work very nicely. The pencil and ink on bristol art page measures approximately 11" x 14"; there are tack holes in the upper corners, and some very minor soiling along the outside edges, otherwise the condition is Excellent. Crumb and Wilson together -- what the (censored), indeed! Adult situations.
