Abstract:

The ""Godfather"" of the underground comics movement begun in the '60s, Robert Crumb is also one of the most important figures in twentieth century art. Born in Philadelphia in 1943, Crumb, like Mark Twain and the later Beat writers, has lived all over America, giving him a unique perspective from which to satirize his home country. In San Francisco in 1967, at the height of the hippie movement, Crumb began producing independent black and white comic books drawn in a style that seemed both old fashioned and up-to-date at the same time, a dense, thick-lined style presented in comic strip pan.
