DescriptionGothic Blimp Works #2 (East Village Other, 1969) Condition: VF+. This nearly-impossible-to-find Underground Comix tabloid features one of Robert Crumb's most outrageous cover illustrations, featuring a slobbering wino tugging on the skirt of a nubile young girl. Making this item even more desirable is the incredible flat, unfolded condition it remains in. As these papers were printed on the cheapest newsprint, most surviving copies are rather tattered and worn; still, they inspire spirited bidding whenever one happens to pop up. This copy has a tiny (.5" x .25") spot of blue-green paint that landed on the outside edge of the cover; it doesn't enter the art area or distract from the overall pristine look of this sharp piece. Jerry Weist, in his 2000 Comic Art Price Guide, refers to this issue as scarcer than #1, and notes all are extremely rare in flat, unfolded condition, with a NM value listed as $200. There can't be many copies as nice as this one.
