Jay Lynch and R. Crumb Meet Chester Gould

Here's the true life story of underground cartoonists Jay Lynch (no relation) and Robert Crumb going to visit Chester Gould in Chicago's Tribune Building in 1968.

Hat tip to Jay Lynch!

And while we're on the topic of Gould ...

Ger Apeldoorn shares a humor strip kinda-sorta by Gould titled "The Gravies."

Ger explains:

Chester Gould doing a funny strip?

Well, not really. It seems somewhere in the early sixties he allowed his asiistants to create a funny strip, which was added as a topper to the Sunday page in very few newspapers. He may have been involved himself as well, since they signed it all together. An amazing gesture in itself.

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the meeting of Crumb and Gould...

But, to help, is there any way to upload a larger image of the full strip? This one's too small for my aged eyes to read the print!
