There's Crumb the Satirist, giving us parody covers and fake ads, not to mention his takes on cultural icons such as Mickey Mouse (of course!), Donald Duck, Heckle & Jeckle, and -- hey! is that Harpo Marx there on page 133?

Every aspect of Robert Crumb is shown off in the handsome third installment of his '60s sketchbook work. There's Crumb the Cartoonist, weighing in with some complete one- and two-page strips featuring, among other things, his famous characters Eggs Ackley and Mr. Natural (the latter of which, incidentally, sports a black beard)... and a rough of the classic "Keep on Truckin'" page, to boot! There's Crumb the Satirist, giving us parody covers and fake ads, not to mention his takes on cultural icons such as Mickey Mouse (of course!), Donald Duck, Heckle & Jeckle, and -- hey! is that Harpo Marx there on page 133? And look, isn't that a young Fritz the Cat?

And finally, there's Crumb the Artist. Portraits, still lifes, urban landscapes -- daily scenes somehow magically transformed by Crumb's searching eye and obsessive pencil into strangely personal drawings, even when he's just sketching a teapot or a nondescript '50s suburban home. No Crumb fan can afford to miss this volume, another penetrating insight into the mind and eye of the premier cartoonist of the second half of the 20th century! Black-and-white illustrations throughout, with 8 pages of color sketches.

Inside cover has a tipped in plate signed by R. Crumb.

Note: This is an out of print, used and/or rare item. Very Fine/ As New.
