    FRANK STACK (1937-) a.k.a. Foolbert Sturgeon • Original comic book art
    “Casebook of Doctor Feelgood/Grammit’s Poodle” from Dorman’s Doggie (1979)

    Dorman’s Doggie, in our humble opinion, is one of the funniest comic books ever. Anyone who has owned or seen a friend’s neurotic small dog will deeply relate to the autobiographical D.D. stories that ran in this and other Rip Off Press comics, later collected by Kitchen Sink Press (page 12 in that collection). Dorman Grammit’s first name inspired the strip’s name, but here the reference is to “Grammit’s Poodle,” before Stack settled on the official name. That’s probably why this is the first page in the 1979 Dorman’s Doggie comic book.

    Medium/Size/Condition: Pen and ink on heavy Crescent illustration board measuring 15 inches wide x 10 inches high. Top edge has some glue residue, partly covered by white tape, very little of which is in the image area. Otherwise 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. Just type Frank Stack in our search bar.
