1965 Cancelled Check Signed By Jay Lynch And Chaka Khan's Dad, Underground Comix For Sale

1965 Cancelled Check Signed By Jay Lynch And Chaka Khan's Dad, Underground Comix

Back in 1965, before the hippie thing got big and I started doing BIJOU FUNNIES, I was a common beatnik who did cartoons and writing for various anti-establishment publications of the day. Commedian Del Close was living in this incredibly cheap apartment, and when he moved to NYC for a while he gave the place up to me and Charles Stevens. The place was terrible but very cheap. You'd have to turn on the hot water heater every time you needed hot water or it would explode, as it was a turn of the century water heater...from before they invented thermostats. The building had all the doors boarded up, and to get to our pad you'd have to climb up on the roof and come in through a window. But we dug the fact that it was like $30 a month. So here is a check I wrote to Charles. He was recently divorced, and he had two daughters, who lived with their mother at the time. Sometimes they would come up to visit . Young and agile as they were at the time, they didn't have much problem climbing up on the roof to get in. They were like 9 or ten years old then. They grew up to be Chaka Khan and her sister who now goes by the name of Taka Boom. All of this was in the pre-underground comix days. So the Check is endorsed on the back by Charles, who had a job at the American Indian Center at the time. Apparently he cashed it from his fellow Indian Center worker Calvin Fast Wolf, as Calvin's signature appears on the back below Charles' signature. Calvin was of the Lakota tribe...and you can research him on the web on your own. So anyway...we lived at that place for a while. By 1966 we moved to better individual pads..and we were the last tennants as the building was condemned and torn down shortly after we left. So this is a part of the pre-history of the underground comix. A part of my life that has never been chronicled in print before , with the exception of a chapter in Skip Williamson's kindle book titled SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION, which is available at amazon.com. Now I am gonna say some other stuff so that people who search the titles and descriptions will wind up on this page. In the late 1960s, I published the first issue of BIJOU FUNNIES, one of the first three so-called "underground comix" ever published. In the pages of BIJOU FUNNIES I published the work of Robert Crumb and Art Spiegelman. In the early days, the underground comix didn't make much dough, so me and Crumb and Spiegelman also did work for Topps bubble gum designing their novelty trading cards. The underground comix were our first love then, though. The gum cards ( Wacky Packages, Garbage Pail Kids, and others) we worked on for Topps were just something we did to pay the rent. Now almost half a century has passed, and the underground comix are finally recognized as the most important art movement of the latter part of the 20th century. There is on this sale. Immediate payment is required. Thank you for looking. ----Jay Lynch
