    Description

    Charles Burns Hard-Boiled Defective Stories Splash Page 1 Original Art (RAW Books & Pantheon Press, 1988). Nobody rocks the holy stew out of the Pop Art/Punk Art movements more emphatically than Burns, a discovery of RAW magazine editor Art Spiegelman. Burns' B-movie bearings combine horror and humor to jarring effect. "Love in Vein," about a master-race conspiracy disguised as a fertility clinic, is a showcase story for El Borbah, Burns' combination of masked wrestler and private eye in one dangerous character. This pristine image consists of ink over graphite on Bristol board, measuring a whopping 12" x 16.5" and framed out to 18.25" x 22". Excellent condition.
