    : “STUCK RUBBER BABY” PAGE 203 (1994); Mounted

    Toland Polk
     gets to see his daughter with Ginger before their baby, provisionally named Melanie, is given up for adoption. Meanwhile he has a flashback about talking to Anna Dellyne and why she refuses to sing her big city “club songs” in Clayfield, Alabama. 

     18 x 24 inches (45.7 x 61 cm). Ink (brush & Rapidograph) on heavy Bristol board. Ginger is a paste-up in panel 6, as is the balloon text in the 8th panel, but these minor defects are not readily apparent. Howard drew his Stuck Rubber Baby pages quite large, so they make great displays. This original is MOUNTED on black Foamcore and shrink-wrapped with a hanger, as done by Howard himself for an exhibition a few years ago. We will ship it carefully protected, as mounted, unless you specify otherwise. Excellent condition.

    : $1,000 (mounted as described)

    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.
