    Description

    Dan O'Neill Federal Crime Comics Special Commission Sketch Original Art (1975). O'Neill, once one of the youngest of syndicated cartoonists, delivered this decorative dye-marker sketch as a throwback to his early involvement with the Air Pirates coalition of the Underground Comix movement. The Air Pirates stirred controversy during the 1960s-70s with their appropriation of Disney characters for un-Disneylike purposes. Here, Mickey Mouse (or a reasonable facsimile) strikes a piratical pose. Inscribed at upper left to Charlie Roberts, a prominent collector of Underground art. Felt marker and Design Markers on lightweight watercolor stock. Image area, 11" x 16.5". Faint toning. Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
