This limited edition poster is numbered 233/500 and signed by the artist Stanley Mouse! NOTE: The Griffin signature is facsimile.


A special limited edition issue like this is unique, and allows new collectors to have a chance to acquire this classic image, one of the most popular 1960's concert poster images, in a beautiful LARGE format size! For this Family Dog favorite, master poster artist Rick Griffin created his version of the “Sunday Funnies”. In 1999 Stanley Mouse told Mark Powers that he created the second panel from the right in the bottom row. This LARGE special LIMITED EDITION poster is numbered 233/500 and SIGNED by Mouse! 


The image features a full color kaleidoscopic, blazing psychedelic sunday color comics pages imagery by Rick Griffin, which includes a comic panel with Murphy (aka "Murph the Surf") a internationally infamous surfing cartoon character he created for Surfer Magazine in his earlier career, as well as a Mickey Mouse character in several panels, the back panel of a back of Camel cigarettes etc., motifs he used extensively in the years to come, on concert posters, as well as in ZAP COMIX and other publications. Coincidentally enough, Rick Griffin met Robert Crumb while ZAP COMIX #1 was still on the press, about six months following the publication of Rick's FD-89 Zap style sunday comic strip concert poster, and invited Rick onboard for the upcoming publication of ZAP #2, to be published four months later, in August of 1968.
