    MR. NATURAL No. 3 by R. Crumb (10th printing).

    In 1976 and 1977 underground cartoonist Robert Crumb created an ongoing "Mr. Natural" strip for The Village Voice, a weekly New York newspaper with hip roots. In the lengthy single adventure our favorite fly-by-night guru deals with fans, fights the devil, goes crazy, and is committed to an insane asylum by devotees Flakey Foont and Ruth Schwartz. The strip ends as two obnoxious ultra-hip Voice reporters press Foont and Schwartz for lurid details.

    Crumb was clearly tired of Mr. Natural and after literally locking him away in this comic book he went quite a few years without doing anything new with "the Natch." Mr. NaturaL No. 3 is a thicker-than-normal underground comic, with 40 pages of "guts" instead of the standard 32 and, like most KSP comix, it is printed on white paper, not newsprint. Kitchen Sink Press first collected the material into Mr. Natural No. 3 in 1977.

    The edition offered here is the 10th and last printing (February 1998). NM/Mint. Its cover price in 1998 was $3.50 and we still offer it here for just $3.50.
