Crumb's white-bearded sage-cum-charlatan lives again in this complete collection of Crumb's greatest character. THE BOOK OF MR. NATURAL ranges from the charming early '70s stories to the controversial '90s stories from HUP! Co-starring Devil Girl (as seen in the movie CRUMB). This book is possibly the best Crumb book to start with, and makes the perfect complement to 1997's masterful MYSTIC FUNNIES, the only Mr. Natural story not included herein. What does it mean, Mr. Natural? Be your own Flakey Foont and find out!
