    HOWARD CRUSE ORIGINAL ART: Page 166 of Stuck Rubber Baby

    Medium: India Ink applied with a Rapidograph on 2-ply Strathmore plate-surface bristol board; some brushwork added for natural texture and hair. Shaded with intricate crosshatching.

    Dimensions: 17-3/4"x23" (Original art is 250% of the image size in the American edition)

    Condition: Excellent, with following caveats: A lettering errors in the first word balloon has been corrected with patch that is executed on 1-ply Strathmore of the same coloration as the 2-ply Strathmore underneath and hence is barely perceptible.

    Provenance: The original art will be shipped directly from the artist.

    Comments by the artist: On this page, having vented an enormous backlog of rage at his paralyzed father Cuthel, Sammy Noone impudently asks his dad to atone for a lifetime of homophobic sins by granting him a favor. For four pages running we have peered ever more closely into Cuthel's unreadable eyes, searching for a soul within. This page is the culmination of a crucial four-page section of Stuck Rubber Baby that serves as a wish-fulfillment metaphor for gays yearning to force America's homophobic power-elite to at last look them in the eye and acknowledge their humanity. (Only two pages of the four-page sequence remain unsold to collectors at this writing.)
