    Robert Crumb Big Ass Comics #1 Splash Page 1 Eggs Ackley Original Art (Rip Off Press, 1969). Our selection of pages from Robert Crumb's classic Underground, Big Ass Comics #1, begins with this intense splash page from the first story, "Eggs Ackley Among the Vulture Demonesses." In it, our bulbous-nosed hero claws his way to the top of the heap, and begins his journey across the desert. Eggs was one of Crumb's first comic characters to be published, and he appeared in several East Village Other strips in 1967. Eggs would go on to appear in one more story, in Big Ass #2, before disappearing altogether. Ink on bristol, with an image area of 8" x 12.25". Some smudging along the borders; otherwise the art is in Excellent condition. From the Jack Jackson ("Jaxon") Collection.
