Note: This is the original artwork for a seven page story entitled Mr. Natural, from Mr. Natural No. 2, October 1971, The San Francisco Comicbook Company.
In this seven page story, Crumb has a field day with 1970s cults and his alter-ego from the subconscious id, Mr. Snoid, makes a cameo appearance. Described by Didier "an authentic wise man and a vulgar quack," Mr. Snoid was "a very natural 'hero' at a time where the religious communities and sects are developing with real and untrue prophets."
