Item Description
Four 10.75x14-1/8" Crescent Illustration Boards features pen and ink original art by Gilbert Shelton, a cartoonist and a key member of the Underground Comix movement. Shelton was the creator of the iconic Underground characters The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, Fat Freddy's Cat and Wonder Wart-Hog. This original art is for complete four-page Moonshiner! story published in DRAG Cartoons #33 in Nov. 1966. Inked by Tony Bell. Story has policeman receiving new patrol car w/Dodge Hemi to chase down moonshiner who has eluded them for 10 years. After filling up the secret tanks in his 1959 Oldsmobile, the moonshiner is spotted by the policeman, who gives chase. Realizing the new patrol car is keeping up w/him, the moonshiner activates the secret tanks, shooting off like a whiskey-powered rocket. Last panel shows the sheriff showing up to see a bedraggled-looking patrolman, who got out of his still moving patrol car, assuming it was sitting still given how fast the moonshiner took off. Each artboard has page number at lower right. Back of each artboard has hand-lettered names of Shelton and Bell w/address and page numbers listed as well. Artboards have some corner tip wear at bottom corners, but art remains clean and Exc. Comes w/reading copy of the issue this art was produced for. From the Archives of Publisher Pete Millar.
