A little parable from Crumb
This appeared in something called US: THE PAPERBACK MAGAZINE# 3, from 1970. Edited by Richard Goldstein. It's an interesting experiment at a magazine in paperback format, some interesting articles and fiction aimed at a college counter-culture market. "Spread" was a portfolio of drawings from Robert Crumb's notebooks. Most of the sketches are of wrinkled unshaven beaten-down-by-life faces or women with thick legs and clunky shoes. But this little sequence stood out as Crumb had something to say. I don't know if he ever developed it into a poster, but it might have done as well as "Keep On Trucking."
