    Robert Crumb, Harvey Kurtzman, Gilbert Shelton, and Others East Village Other V6 #1 "Science Fiction Comics" Jam Page Original Art (EVO, 1970). Here is the incredible all-star jam page entitled "Science Fiction Comics" that first ran in this issue of the famed New York underground newspaper. It was reprinted as a poster, and even later reprinted by Fantagraphics in The Complete Crumb Comics #7 "Hot 'n' Heavy" collection in 1991. The original art was created in ink over graphite on small sections of paper (most 4.25" x 3.25") and affixed to a 20" x 27" illustration board. The 17" x 23.5" image area includes panels by R. Crumb, Robert Williams, Harvey Kurtzman, Victor Moscoso, Gilbert Shelton, Spain Rodriguez, and S. Clay Wilson. That's the Zap collective plus the man who originally inspired most of the gang here, Harvey Kurtzman! It is signed by these artists at the bottom edge of the image area. There's a famous video of all the guys hanging out, drinking beer, cavorting around -- and drawing this jam page; specifically, you see Victor Moscoso, Gilbert Shelton, and Robert Williams as they draw their individual panels (watch this on YouTube). The illustration board has been affixed to a same-size backing board. Of all the many Zap Comix jams, this page ranks alongside the very best of them, and is perhaps the most famous one of all. It's been locked away in the private collection; finally, it's being offered for sale, nearly 50 years after its creation. An absolutely classic piece of Underground art history! In Very Good condition.
