Abstract:

"Few cartoonists have affected our world the way Robert Crumb (1943- ) has, from busting cultural and sexual taboos for artists everywhere with his pioneering underground comix to his never-ending drive to improve his art. This book, the third volume of The comics Journal Library series, presents a composite portrait of the artist through four long out-of-print interviews from the Utne Independent Press Award-winning magazine's archives and a never-before-published chat from the artist's 1980s renaissance. This volume spans Crumb's life and career, covering his views on sex, politics, art, racism and culture, his peers and family, his flirtations with success on America's terms and his later rejections of those terms. It also provides an absorbing oral history of the latter half of the 20th century from the point of view of an artist who helped shape it"--Back cover.
