The Conversation Series: R. Crumb
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Crumb 22 Jan 2008 11:44 AM

I just picked up this neat little book that I hadn't heard a thing about: The Conversation Series Vol. 1: R. Crumb & Hans Ulrich Obrist. I've only just started reading; it's small, 50-page chapbook featuring the transcript of an interview conducted with Crumb in Paris a couple years ago by the curator and editor Hans Ulrich Obrist. I'm only five pages in, but I can already recommend it, beginning as it does with a great discussion about the sorry state of contemporary architecture and how we got here. It's somehow reassuring to know that Paris is just as fucked as my neighborhood in Seattle when it comes to tearing down history so we can have more soulless condo complexes and big box retailers.


Johnny Ryan, are you reading?

The New Yorker has announced a contest inviting cartoonists to design their own version of the magazine's mascot, Eustice Tilly (originally designed in 1925 by Rea Irvin for the very first issue). My favorite Tilly probably has to be the above Crumb version, which was perceived as a blasphemous betrayal of the mag's proud tradition by some of its more calcified subscribers when originally published in 1994. Now it's a decade and a half later and folks like Crumb, Aline Kominsky, Chris Ware (see his Tilly below), Adrian Tomine, and Daniel Clowes are fairly regular contributors to the mag. Mouly and Spiegelman, what hath thou wrought?!

Crumb & Schulz: expensive
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Robert CrumbPeanutsclassicsCharles M Schulz 6 Dec 2007 12:52 PM


Via Spurge come some record-breaking auction results: Charles Schulz's original art for the Sunday, April 10, 1955 Peanuts strip recently sold for $113,525, and Robert Crumb's original cover of Mr. Natural #1 sold in the same auction for $101,575, the first time either artist has cleared 6 figures.

For about 0.025% of its sale price, that same Schulz strip can be had, along with 730 others, in The Complete Peanuts 1955-1956. Just saying.

Texans can buy Tony Millionaire a drink or have him sign your books this Saturday, December 1st, from 3 to 6 pm. (Austin Books & Comics, 5002 N. Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX 78751.) And, yes, his Drinky Crow Show is in the works with new characters being developed and churned out of the Transylvanian Animation Factory as I type.


The insurance company was a bit put off by the condition of the offices here at Fantagraphics so we've been cleaning up. In the process this placemat sketch from R. Crumb was discovered. I've included a detail of, yes, Robert Crumb's drawing of a Pokemon (presumably one in the possession of Gary's son, Conrad).
