Andy Warhol "Archie Strips" Photo Comic Book with the Rolling Stones

Good condition.

Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.

Brigid Berlin, Andy Warhol, Max's Kansas City and The Rolling Stones are the subject of Artchie Stips, a scarce fanzine/comic prepared by an elusive figure in the Factory orbit. Artchie appears to be Archie Dukeshire, short-lived husband of Jackie Curtis who was also featured in her play Vain Victory in 1971, and who reportedly died scuba diving shortly thereafter. Archie is also likely the fellow appearing in screen tests for Andy Warhol's Chelsea Girls in 1966 (and who's name on the film box is illegibly recorded as "Reikerhove" or "Reikerhue" a highly plausible misreading of Dukeshire). Berlin and Warhol figure prominently in the 'zine, which opens with Artchie riding the Staten Island Ferry and receiving the inspiration to use telepathy to transport himself to "a loft known as the Factory pulse central of the Andy Warhol World... Any way I am here with my camera & tape." The comic continues with Artchie meeting Brigid Berlin and Andy Warhol who, camera in hand, says "Why don't you get nude I'll take some [photos] of you." Never camera shy, a montage of nudes of Brigid and Artchie end the sequence. It is on the verso of the last page of this opening strip that Artchie has inscribed the book to Brigid. The Max's Kansas City "episode" follows next with photographs of Jane Fonda, Candy Darling, and Andrea Feldman, who had performed in Warhol's Imitation of Christ (1967), Trash (1970), and Heat (1972) before her August 1972 suicide. The final section of Artchie Strips presents The Rolling Stones in conversation in their Plaza Hotel suite and backstage at Madison Square Garden before images of them on stage. This is an original photo comic book that is exceptionally rare.
