About the Author:

Born in Philadelphia, R. Crumb is the author of numerous comic works and one of the pioneers of underground comics and arguably one of the most famous cartoonists in history. His books include The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb, and many more. He lives in the south of France with his wife, the artist Aline Kominsky-Crumb.

From Booklist:

Fourteen volumes into premier underground cartoonist Crumb's collected pencilings, we at last reach one of his finest hours, so to speak. That was the dawning of Weirdo, a Booklist-sized magazine full of comics, both drawn and photographed--a European style that Crumb loved but many Weirdo readers disdained, so he gave it up well before the irregular serial folded. Nor do the photo-funnies reappear here; after all, they were posed, not drawn. Crumb was Weirdo's editor, an exceedingly permissive one who published many unknowns as well as himself and other established undergrounders. His Weirdo work treats his favorite themes--sex and other appetites--with his trademark outrageousness and superb, unmistakable drawing style, even when he decides to illustrate a classic, such as James Boswell's eighteenth-century journal of his dalliances. Besides the Weirdo stuff, artwork published contemporaneously elsewhere appears, including more of Crumb's collaborations with Harvey Pekar, otherwise collected in the splendid (really--look at the title) American Splendor Presents Bob & Harv's Comics (1994).
