GREG IRONS' 'DEATH WISH'
Underground cartoonist Greg Irons tells his life story as a "normal" zombie here in this example of his original art, a bizarre twist on society and its numerous expectations of acts of perversion disguised as normal occurrences. Irons also contributed to SKULL COMICS, seen previously in MMW.
Greg Irons Yellow Dog #18 Complete 3-Page Story Original Art (Print Mint, 1970). The late Greg Irons tells a twisted version of his life story in this bizarre three-pager. Irons was definitely a one-of-a-kind artist with a unique style and a taste for the macabre, as this zombie-filled story proves; he also had a wicked sense of humor. The art is in ink and whiteout over graphite with Zipatone shading film on Bristol board, with an average per-page image area of 7" x 10.5". The first page is made up of three conjoined pieces; an early version of the first page's top tier of panels is on the back of one piece. Overall, Very Good condition with handling wear, toning, and a few small stains on the first page. From the Eric Sack Collection.
