Complete Crumb Comics Volume 9: "R. Crumb vs. the Sisterhood"

Overview

So is he a misogynist or isn't he? This might be the place to find out, with "The Many Faces of R. Crumb" and the nasty title story. Plus Crumb's weird funny-animal stories, illustrations from the cookbook "Eat It," and more!
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 ...

Overview

So is he a misogynist or isn't he? This might be the place to find out, with "The Many Faces of R. Crumb" and the nasty title story. Plus Crumb's weird funny-animal stories, illustrations from the cookbook "Eat It," and more!
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from the 1972 cookbook Eat It written by Crumb's ex-wife (20 pages' worth—a bonanza for Crumb lovers), rare and unpublished album cover art, and (in full color) Crumb's funny spoof of fellow undergrounder Jay Lynch's Nard 'n' Pat.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 the ol' Pooperoo himself—is it any wonder this is one of the most highly acclaimed and best-selling collections of classic comics ever released?

Editorial Reviews

Nick Gazin - Vice
“This series is awesome, perfect, and essential....These should sit on your shelf next to the complete Shakespeare, your Bible, and the complete Sherlock Holmes.”
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This important addition to the ongoing project to publish the complete works of America's best-known ``underground'' cartoonist collects comics from the early 1970s. It includes classic Crumb characters like Flakey Foont, Mr. Natural, ProJunior, the Snoid and Angel McFood. Crumb's work is characterized by all-out sex, and his various obsessions are on graphic display. The women are solidly built, their shoes lovingly rendered and his designs on them outrageously explicit. In one cartoon, a suburban father on vacation gives up civilization after he's captured by a hairy female mountain monster. In another, Crumb's sexual fantasies dominate a dreamily eroticized, torpid afternoon. One of the best stories presents the notorious cat Fritz as a burned-out sleazeball exploiting his movie-star fame. Fed up with his insults, Andrea Ostrich stabs him in the back of the head with an ice pick, ending his sordid little cartoon life. Many of the pieces included here set the stage for the later, very funny autobiographical works influenced by his wife, cartoonist Aline Kominsky-Crumb. (June)
