    Gothic Blimp Works #3 (East Village Other, 1969) Condition: NM-. For collectors searching for art by Underground legend Robert Crumb, it doesn't get much better than this. This is the third issue of the New York-based Gothic Blimp Works, a tabloid featuring the cream of the crop of Underground cartoonists (like Vaughn Bode, Kim Deitch, Jay Lynch, and more). Hard to find in its day, they are nearly impossible to locate now, especially in high grade. Noted as "extremely rare" in flat, unfolded condition by Jerry Weist in his 2000 Comic Art Price Guide, these papers were printed on the lowest-quality pulp newsprint available; most surviving copies have been stored folded and are found ragged and brittle. This one is a gem.
