    Robert Crumb Gothic Blimp Works #2 "The Pricksters" Comic Strip Original Art (EVO, 1969). An original companion comic strip to a page titled "Shoo Shoo Baby," this one is not for the faint of heart! We can't show or even properly describe what's going on here without offending someone, so suffice to say this is a very funny, very graphic four-panel newspaper-style strip by R. Crumb. The art is in ink on blue-grid print board, with an approximate image area of 10" x 2.75", matted and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 18" x 11". The condition is Excellent. This piece was included in a 2012 exhibition in Paris, and includes a sticker on the back of the frame; it also appeared in the German museum hardcover, Yeah, But Is It Art? in 2004. For those who are brave (and over 18), the uncensored image is online in our website -- if you dare! From the Eric Sack Collection.
