The Devil's Smelly Brother, 3

Here is the last page of the story of the Devil's Smelly Brother. It is framed and under glass, so I had a little trouble taking a photograph of it. It is obvious that there were rules holding Seth to the 9-frame page, with slight variations allowed. He would never have done it that way otherwise.
I don't know where the originals are for the other two Big Book stories. In the book about the 70's he did the story on Disco, and in the book about Vice, he did the story about cigarette smoking. He was living in San Diego (near me) when he worked on them, and I remember him looking for photo references for the 70's and disco clothing. He was pretty exacting about what he wanted it to look like. I was impressed with his desire to get it right.

Wow! an area with solid black (well, with stars)! A rare thing with Seth's work.
Thanks for posting, as always.
