Jersey Hitters – R.C & The Phantom Spitter



On the weekends, the Lower East Side was inundated with young people from outside the city.  Ever the keen observer, R. Crumb inked this cartoon of two “Jersey Hitters” making the scene.  In 1969, it reflected the increasing anger and widespread militancy in New York.  This dis of a statement was the cover of the June 19-July 3, 1969 issue. This archival reproduction is printed locally in Austin, TX on #80lb matte cover and is 12×18.”
