    FRANK STACK (1937-) a.k.a. Foolbert Sturgeon • Original comic book art
    “Our Cancer Year” (1993)

    Frank Stack illustrated the painfully honest autobiographical 1994 graphic novel Our Cancer Year with Harvey Pekar (1939-2010) and Joyce Brabner. This is page 187, showing Pekar’s wife Brabner confronting him about his self-pity. Beautiful rendering and a classic collaboration between two masters of the graphic novel genre.

    Medium/Size/Condition: Pen and ink on light Bristol board measuring 11 inches wide x 14 inches high. Top edge is carefully torn from a spiral bound sketchbook. Balloons are original put pasted on art. Excellent condition.

    Further reference:
    Most comix historians regard Frank Stack as the very first underground cartoonist (his earliest Jesus comics way pre-date R. Crumb or Gilbert Shelton). Additional Stack art is available.  Contact us for further details.  Additionally, Stack items (out of print books and postcards) can be found in Steve Krupp’s Curio Shoppe.
