    Robert Crumb Arcade, the Comics Revue #2 "Who Killed Lenny Bruce?" Illustration Original Art (Print Mint, 1975). Robert Crumb treats us to a view of the late, controversial comedian, Lenny Bruce, telling a joke in Heaven as haloed angels laugh along in the clouds. Paul Krassner's article, with its title reflecting Bruce's famous "Who Killed Jesus Christ?" routine, was featured as a text piece in the second issue of Arcade the Comics Review, with illos by Crumb. This is the main illustration, as it appeared on page 20. This ink on Bristol board piece has an approximate image area of 9.25" x 10.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.
