    Description

    Robert Crumb - Original Sketchbook Page, "The Dismal World of R. Crumb" (1972). Crumb pokes fun at himself on this sketchbook page, which was reprinted as the first page of 1973's Artistic Comics. As usual, Crumb's obsession is sex, as he gives us a candid view of a couple "doing it," while a young lad with a cowboy hat vomits at the sight! On the reverse are several sketches of men, including one being slapped by another's "two-by-four," with the caption "That'll learn ya!" The page measures 7" x 8.5", with moderate use of white-out. It's in excellent condition.
