Mr. Natural No. 2. Robert Crumb.

Mr. Natural No. 2

San Francisco, CA: San Francisco Comic Book Company, 1971. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. The second number in the series entirely devoted to one of Robert Crumb's most acclaimed underground comic creations- Mr. Natural. With several episodes featuring Flakey Foont, Mr. Natural's protege-sidekick, & much more. An inimitable, ingenious work of the imagination, the epitome of the 1960s counterculture just starting to curdle into disillusionment & self-parody at the beginning of the 1970s. This is the first printing of October 1971, as established by comix scholarship, indicated by a fifty-cent cover price & the lack of the statement "Copyright 1971 by Robert Crumb" in publication information at bottom of inner front cover found in the second printing. An essential Crumb comix collectible, in its rarest form. For adult disciples. In relatively fine condition, approximately equivalent to at least a 6.0 grade per Fogel's, CGC, etc.: Very mild rubbing, creasing & discoloration of front & back covers; faint creases & tiny bumps at upper & lower right corners of front cover; browning esp. at white margins of back cover; several very small creases & tiny bump at upper left corner of back cover. Interior fine except for browning of just-above-newspaper quality pages esp. margins & edges effecting inner front & back covers; but pages are not brittle & with barely any acidic scent. Fine.
