    Title/date/description: “STUCK RUBBER BABY” Page 2 (1994); Mounted

    The impactful SECOND PAGE from a modern masterpiece! The young Toland Polk is traumatized by seeing a photo of the brutalized Emmett Till in Jet magazine, then he is given racist information about the thickness of “Negro skulls” by his well-intentioned but uninformed father. Imagine owning the first full-paneled page in this amazing book.

     18 x 24 inches (45.7 x 61 cm). Ink (brush & Rapidograph) on heavy Bristol board. Small lettering paste-ups in 2nd text block and a line in 8th panel, and the final line (none of these are 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.

    : $1,250 (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.
