Description

    King Bee #1 (Apex Novelties, 1969) Condition: VF/NM. This wild tabloid from 1969 featuring "All the Boogie that's Fit to Print" has one of the funniest Robert Crumb covers ever! With the daring pledge to show "doing it" right on the front cover, we see an amorous dump truck caught in the act of "mounting" an innocent young car! Inside this scarce Underground, there's a bizarre "jam" comic featuring art by Crumb, with fellow Zap artists Victor Moscoso, Rick Griffin, and S. Clay Wilson, called "Reel Jam," that has not been reprinted in the Complete Crumb Comics series by Fantagraphics. Jerry Weist's 2000 Comic Art Price Guide gives this issue a NM value of $175, noting that copies in "flat, perfect condition are very scarce." While this one may not rank as "perfect," it's pretty darn close!

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
