    R. CRUMB: "ZAP" SERIGRAPH (1993). This is only the second fine art serigraph in a series Signed & Numbered by legendary underground cartoonist Robert Crumb. (The first was the 15-panel "Short History of America" serigraph available in this store.) This fourteen color hand-pulled silkscreen is from Zap #1, the 25¢ underground comic book that started the "comix" revolution! (They were hand-sold by Crumb and his first wife Dana out of a baby carriage in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco during the 1967 Summer of Love). The cover of that original low-budget underground comic was only three colors: black, blue and orange.

    This is the first time Crumb's classic cover appears in true color. Published by Kitchen Sink Press on heavy acid-free deckle-edge archival paper in May 1993 in an edition of 250 (@ the $250 original price) and now long out-of-print. Crumb's following is currently well beyond comics fandom. His last N.Y.C. gallery show sold out quickly, with gravy and wine-stained placemat drawings selling for $3,000 to $5,000 each! A Crumb drawing recently graced the cover of Art Forum (the first time for a "cartoonist") and art museums in America and Europe are buying his pieces for their permanent collections.

    Crumb has been called everything from the Daumier of his generation to "the Breughel of the 20th Century" (Time art critic Robert Hughes). If you've read this far you probably already know all this. The Zap serigraph measures 22 inches x 29 inches. Shrink-wrapped against heavy board and shipped flat between layers of protective cardboard. $1,500.00
