The Complete Crumb Comics Volume 11: Mr. Natural Commited to a Mental Institution by R. Crumb
Crumb classics from Dirty Laundry and Arcade, full-cover covers for books, comics and LPs, and Crumb’s complete serial from the pages of the Village Voice. This volume contains Crumb classics Dirty Laundry #2 (the ground-breaking Crumb/Kominsky jam), the last of the Arcade strips, full-cover covers for books, comics and LPs, and Crumb’s complete 40-page epic Mr. Natural serial from the pages of the Village Voice. In it, our hero, having given up on the "wise man" business, has sent away all his students and lives a quiet life. But during a particularly arduous meditation, he wrestles with the Devil, and at last achieves total enlightenment. He's locked up in a nut house right away, of course. Thus endeth the Age of Aquarius. Other classic stories include "I Once Lived the Life of a Millionaire" (the Snoid vs. The Revolution) and "Josephine and the Cross-Eyed Quadroon" (which covers just about all the bases, political incorrectness-wise). Re-live the 20th Century with Crumb!
