Robert Crumb enters the '70s with this, the sixth volume in Fantagraphics Books' all-inclusive reprint series. This includes a couple of genuine rarities (some of them so obscure they didn't even make the Crumb Checklist), as well as all of Crumb's work from Big Ass #1, Zap #4 (including the legendary, much-busted, X-rated "Joe Blow" teen incest strip), the remarkably offensive Snatch #3 and Jiz #1, the classic Despair, and the second issue of Motor City — classics all. The volume also includes a 16-page color section (with rare covers from the first three Gothic Blimp Works), a sumptuous cover by Crumb, and an insightful intro by the Man himself (no, not Stan Lee). Absolutely indispensible!

1991 Harvey Award Winner, Best Domestic Reprint Project

"Fantagraphics' Crumb project advances into wilder, woolier, scarier, more fantastic, and lewder and still lewder territory... This is definitely X-rated material — make that triple-X! — but it's brilliant, scabrously hilarious, absolutely basic to understanding the 1960s American counterculture, and authentically mind-blowing." – Booklist

"I guess I ought to be talking about my artwork in these introductions, but how th' hell can I talk about my own work?? What can I say about it? My pissant little fame had made my life so completely crazy by this time. Circa 1970 was such a weird time anyway...  I'd rather brag about all the fun times I had with different women, kvetch about the craziness they put me through." – from the Introduction by R. Crumb
