Overview

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 14: The Early '80s and Weirdo Magazine continues the multi-volume series comprising the complete works of the legendary cartoonist R. Crumb, one of America's most original, trenchant, and uncompromising artists.
This volume features the beginning of a seminal period of both Crumb's life and comics history with the first eight issues of Weirdo magazine, edited and anchored by Crumb, including the legendary strips, “Uncle Bob’s Mid-Life Crisis” and “I Remember the Sixties.” Also included are collaborations with Harvey Pekar from the pages of American Splendor, rare music-related art, Crumb's final contributions to Winds of Change magazine, and much more. Including the entirety of Crumb's published oeuvre, as well as unpublished comics and illustrations, The Complete Crumb Comics series (along with its companion series, The R. Crumb Sketchbooks) is an invaluable addition to any comics library.The whole idea for Weirdo magazine came to me in a flash in the fall of 1980. I was performing my daily meditation exercise one day when the vision of this kooky, screwball magazine erupted in all its tacky, low-life, dumbass essence, a style-mix of the old 1940s and '50s girlie-and-cartoon "joke books," Harvey Kurtzman's early Mad and Humbug and their sleazy imitators, and the self-published "punk" zines of the period. I got very excited. I became obsessed. – From the introduction by R. Crumb

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the title suggests, this is a collection of cartoons culled from Crumb's first few years at the helm of Weirdo, the magazine he created for those who, like him, "hate everything." Crumb takes his readers on a tour through his bizarre psyche, offering such treats as "Nukuler Holocaust Kicks" and "Uncle Bob's Mid-Life Crisis." The variety of drawing styles, coupled with narratives that are as different from each other as they are bizarre, are a testament to Crumb's twisted genius. Also included (in full color) are the first eight covers of Weirdo as well as three pages depicting trading cards featuring early jazz musicians. This collection is a fascinating insight into one of the most talented and intriguing cartoonists to have graced us with his art. The entire series is highly recommended.--Vincent Au, New York Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
