Product description

From Library Journal

As the title suggests, this is a collection of cartoons culled from Crumb's first few years at the helm of Weirdo, the magazine he created for those who, like him, "hate everything." Crumb takes his readers on a tour through his bizarre psyche, offering such treats as "Nukuler Holocaust Kicks" and "Uncle Bob's Mid-Life Crisis." The variety of drawing styles, coupled with narratives that are as different from each other as they are bizarre, are a testament to Crumb's twisted genius. Also included (in full color) are the first eight covers of Weirdo as well as three pages depicting trading cards featuring early jazz musicians. This collection is a fascinating insight into one of the most talented and intriguing cartoonists to have graced us with his art. The entire series is highly recommended.DVincent Au, New York

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).
