    Larry Gonick - Original Art Illustration, "Publication Party" (Rip Off Press, 1978). Larry Gonick is a name that not everyone is familiar with. But if you've been in a comic book store in the last 20 years, you might have noticed his Cartoon History of the Universe on the shelves. Offered here is the original art for the invitation to a publication party for three new books from Rip Off Press. In it, Gonick draws Zippy the Pinhead, Fat Freddy, and Fat Freddy's cat having drinks with a dinosaur. A unique piece of art, and Underground history all at the same time! Overall size of this piece is 10.5" x 13" with an image area of 6" x 9"; it is in excellent condition.
