    Kim Deitch - Original Illustration, "Thalidomide Thal" from BLAB! #2. Thal and her pal "Tarlton Tongue" are the subject of this pen and ink drawing by underground legend Kim Deitch. This drawing is the first of a series of features that began running in BLAB! #2, and was calle "The BLAB! Dating Depot." Who knew apricot pits could have that kind of effect on a person? Having never made appearances at conventions, original material from Deitch can be very hard to come by -- especially pieces of this quality. This is simply a deep and detailed piece that belongs in a serious underground art collection.
