    Robert Crumb - Original Sketches, "A Sad Comic Strip" (1962). From St Patrick's Day of 1962 comes this tale of "Little Billy Bean," Crumbs alter-ego in his early strips.

This strip takes up both the front and back of the page and has a very minor tape mark on the lower left. Overall size of this piece is 6.75" x 8.5".
