    Robert Crumb is an artist and illustrator recognized for the distinctive style of his drawings and his critical, satirical, subversive view of the American mainstream. While he is perhaps best known for his Keep on Truckin’ and Fritz the Cat cartoons, his "Short History of America" series is an urbanist classic.  Arguably his most timeless image, this series shows the gradual metamorphosis of a single plot of land from virgin wilderness to urban decay in 12 panels. It first appeared in black & white in 1979 in the ecological magazine Co-Evolutionary Quarterly and in Snoid Comics. It was rearranged and colored by Peter Poplaski in 1981 and quickly became Kitchen Sink Press’ best-selling poster. Learn More

    Prolific American cartoonist R. Crumb is known for his satire of modern American culture, as well as creating a nostalgia for the folk culture of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He founded the underground comix publication Zap Comix. This calendar showcases 12 of his fantastic cartoons, including the hugely popular Fritz the Cat, Keep on Truckin’ and covers of his magazine Weirdo. It’s an excellent cross-section of work, with nothing too offensive and seven pieces in full color. Learn More

    The Book of Weirdo is a hugely entertaining examination of Weirdo magazine, Robert Crumb's legendary and long-running humor comics anthology from the 1980s. Crumb himself calls this “a great book” and “the definitive work on the subject.” Weirdo influenced a generation of cartoonists, and served as a creative refuge for underground comix veterans and training ground for new creators. This book features the comprehensive story of the fondly-recalled magazine, along with testimonials from over 130 of the mag's contributors, plus interviews with Weirdo's three editors: Crumb himself, Peter “Hate” Bagge, and Aline Kominsky-Crumb, as well as publisher “Baba Ron” Turner.

  10. R. CRUMB SKETCHBOOK Volume 4 1982-1989

    Crumb declares in one drawing, above a lovingly rendered tree, “As I get older I get more twisted, convoluted, depraved, cynical, embittered, self-centered, jaded, debauched, ruthless, greedy, conceited, set-in-my-ways, long-winded, absent-minded, prejudiced, closed-minded, misanthropic, nervous…” To prove this self-flagellating analysis he fills the pages with his signature perversions (in country settings), scathing social commentary, cruel self-portraits, experimental cubism… and some lovely sylvan landscape.
