    Robert Crumb Motor City Comics #1 "Boingy Baxter" Complete 5-Page Story Original Art (Rio Off Press, 1969). Speed freak Milton "Boingy" Baxter gets tranked out in Detroit and has to bounce his way out of a marriage and on to China, in this crazy five-pager. Motor City Comics was R. Crumb's most straight-forward series from his early peak period, with less emphasis on sex and drugs (although not completely lacking in that department). It's fun stuff with a lighter touch, particularly this story, with a 1940s-style title character reminiscent of slick deadbeat Al from the radio comedy My Friend Irma, who always called his girlfriend "Chicken." The art is in ink over light graphite on sketchbook paper, with an average per-page image area of 8" x 12". In Very Good condition with paper toning and minor handling wear. From the Eric Sack Collection.
