- Full Description
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.
For example, Fritz is from the cover of the 1977 trade paperback; we have three album covers, Harmonica Blues from 1976, The Otis Brothers from 1987, and Truckin' My Blues Away from 1978. A serious portrait of B.B. King, three Weirdo covers, two untitled pieces, and Who's Afraid of Robert Crumb, with a montage of all of his work, from 1999.
Informative text accompanies each work and the datepad features previous and next month’s views.
