1969 Bijou Funnies Cancelled Check Signed By Jay Lynch And Robert Crumb. For Sale

1969 Bijou Funnies Cancelled Check Signed By Jay Lynch And Robert Crumb.

Back in the"60s and '70s, Skip Williamson and I ran the BIJOU PUBLISHING EMPIRE. All Bijou canceled checks were returned to me at the end of the month. This is back before we had the widespread use of computers and the paperless society that we have today. I'll tell ya, though... The old way made it a lot easier to figure out the taxes. The above item is the original bank check signed by me and made out to and endorsed by Robert Crumb. This is the earliest BIJOU FUNNIES check made out to Crumb that I could find. It is dated September 8th 1969. It was written shortly after Bijou's incorporation, and represents a payment made to Crumb for one of his early contributions to this seminal underground comix title. Boldly endorsed by the young R. Crumb on the back of the check, this document is an important part of the earliest Underground Comix history. Immediate payment is required. 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. . And again, immediate payment is required. Thank you for looking. ----Jay Lynch
