The Life and Death of Fritz the Cat

$19.99
✔ Pre-Order

Robert Crumb's first great character -- rivaled only by Mr. Natural -- was Fritz the Cat, the horny hip-talking, feline, whose success (especially after the release of the 1972 Ralph Bakshi animated movie, which Crumb loathed) is back in print as an inexpensive hardcover and as a companion to The Book of  Mr. Natural. It contains all the Fritz stories from teh earliest sketchbook-drawn tales ("Hey, Ol' Cat!" and "Fritz Comes on Strong"), to the wild adventure stories ("Special Agent for the C.I.A."), all the way to the despairing "Fritz the Cat, Superstar," with its infamous ice-pick ending, Plus, an introduction by Crumb, sketchbook pages, and more.
