    Description

    Robert Crumb "Soft Zap" Two-Sided Sketchbook Page Original Art (c. 1968). Crumb plays around with the Zap Comics logo on one side of this sketchbook page, and treats us to some great character sketches on the reverse, including "Spiro," as later seen in the Zap #3 story, "Hairy." It's all drawn in blue ballpoint pen, which was unusual for him, but it's definite in his classic, fine-line style. We love the two "smoking bits -- a nude girl with the halo and butt in her mouth, and a guy who seems puzzled by the "cigarette" he's puffing! The page measures approximately 7.5" x 10.25", and is in Excellent condition. Neither side is signed.
