- Full Description
Robert Crumb's long day's journey into the '70s continues with this volume of classic material from 1972 and 1973. The sunny psychedelic era is a fading memory for the counterculture, and Crumb's work of that period reflects a darker, more introspective artist at work. This volume includes Crumb's first collaboration with Harvey Pekar, a long partnership that would help turn Pekar into an alternative comics star. This politically incorrect volume spotlights some of Crumb's most outrageous strips, including the complete contents of XYZ Comics, plus selections from Zap #6, Tales from the Leather Nun, San Francisco, and others.
This volume also includes the ultra-rare drawings from the 1972 cookbook Eat It, written by Crumb's ex-wife, rare and unpublished album cover art, and (in full color) Crumb's funny spoof of fellow undergrounder Jay Lynch's Nard 'n' Pat. All this, plus an all-new cover and introduction by Crumb himself, is it any wonder this is one of the most highly acclaimed and best-selling collections of classic comics ever released?
