    Description

    Gothic Blimp Works #6 (East Village Other, 1969) Condition: NM. This typically scarce issue of Gothic Blimp Works features an uncommon treasure sure to thrill Underground collectors. It's a full-color page by Robert Crumb, "Flakey Foont in Desperation Blues" that was, to our knowledge, never reprinted in The Complete Crumb Comics. It's a great page featuring Mr. Natural; this issue also contains wild work by Gilbert Shelton, S. Clay Wilson, an early page by Bernie Wrightson, and lots more. Jerry Weist refers to these tabloid comix as extremely rare in flat unfolded condition in his 2000 Comic Art Price Guide, and assigns this issue a NM value of $125. This copy is a real beauty, flat and clean, and quite possibly the nicest copy in existence.
