    “HEADRACK” — No Standards for LSD These Days! (1976)  

    friend Headrack is a gay hippie artist whose love of drugs is well known to “Barefootz" fans. So it’s no surprise that when he gets his own page he goes on a tirade about his 1976-era LSD proving not up to the high standards of the 1960s Owsley Purple Haze Headrack no doubt longs for. We totally understand. 
    Size/medium/condition16 x 20 inches (40.6 x 50.8 cm). Ink & Zip-a-Tone on Bristol board. Some very light yellowing in the opening panel where Zip-a-Tone at some point fell away. The “Headrack by Howard Cruse” logo is a paste-up. Otherwise excellent condition.

    Warranted to be authentic and from the estate of Howard Cruse, which the DKAA agency exclusively represents.

    Further reference
    Howard Cruse (1944-2019) was an American cartoonist best known for humor and gay themes. First coming to attention in the 1970s during the underground comix movement with Barefootz, he was the founding editor of Gay Comix in 1980, created the gay-themed strip Wendel during the 1980s, and he reached a more mainstream audience in 1995 with his masterwork Stuck Rubber Baby (published in an anniversary edition in 2020 by First Second).

    We have art from Cruse’s full career. If you don’t see what you’re looking for in this web gallery, contact us at and we can tell you if what you seek is in our larger inventory.
