Synopsis:

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 Including the entirety of Crumb's published oeuvre, as well as unpublished comics and illustrations, The Complete Crumb Comics series (along with its companion series, The R. Crumb Sketchbooks) is an invaluable addition to any comics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 Color and black-and-white cartoons throughout

Product Description: Classic volume of the definitive Complete Crumb library, back in print after years of unavailability!
