Overview

"The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 17 continues the multi-volume, chronological series comprising the complete works of the legendary cartoonist R. Crumb, one of America's most original, trenchant, and uncompromising artists. This volume explores the years 1988-1992, including his contributions to issues 22-27 of the infamous underground comix anthology, Weirdo, which was founded by Crumb and featured such classics as "Memories Are Made of This" and "I'm Grateful! I'm Grateful!" Also included is the historic "Cave Wimp" from Zap #12 (as featured on this volume's cover), "The Ol' Outsider Goes to the Academy Awards" (created for Premiere magazine), the scarce Vues De Sauve portfolio of landscape drawings made in the artist's village in southern France, and 24 pages in full-color." Including the entirety of Crumb's published oeuvre, as well as unpublished comics and illustrations, the multiple Harvey and Eisner Award-winning Complete Crumb Comics series (along with its companion series, The R. Crumb Sketchbooks) is an invaluable addition to any cartooning library. Book jacket.
