From Crumb's Shelf to Your Ears
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Crumb 31 Jan 2011 11:26 AM

  

Musician John Heneghan, whom I've mentioned on this blog previously, is a frequent musical collaborator with R. Crumb. And now, he's been entrusted with selling off some of the more extraneous items in Crumb's legendary 78 record collection. Many of the items include hand-written notes by Crumb on the sleeve of each piece. These could make a super cool, ultra-unique gift for any Crumb fans in your life. 

Anyone Have a Spare $100K?
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert Crumb 17 Jan 2011 10:36 AM

  

I'd never seen this Crumb painting before. I entertained the notion that it might be a fraud for a moment, but I think the telltale signs are the building facades and cars, which are classic "Harlem"-era Crumb. Available on eBay for a mere $100K.

Today's Online Commentary & Diversions:

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec Vol. 1: Pterror Over Paris and The Eiffel Tower Demon [Pre-Order]

Review: "First off: a round of applause to Kim Thompson for his translation of The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec. The French title of the first volume translates literally as 'Adele and the Beast,' and that was the title of the previous American version (20 years or so ago) — but 'Pterror over Paris' is way funnier, and in line with the overheated, not entirely serious style of this book. ...[T]his is really charming stuff... and it's super-fun." – Douglas Wolk, TIME/Techland

The Sanctuary

Review: "This is a powerful tale about creativity, morality, verity and above all, responsibility which demands that the reader work for his reward. As an exploration of imagination it is subtly enticing, but as an examination of Mankind’s unchanging primal nature The Sanctuary is pitilessly honest. Abstract, symbolic, metaphorical yet gloriously approachable, this devastatingly clever saga is a 'must-see' for any serious fan of comics and every student of the human condition." – Win Wiacek, Now Read This!

Love and Rockets Library (Short Stories): Amor Y Cohetes [with FREE Signed Bookplate]

Review: "In collecting all the (mostly) non-Locas, non-Palomar odds’n'ends from the initial run of Love and Rockets from both Gilbert and Jaime — and Mario too, the 'sometimes Y' to Beto and Xaime’s AEIOU — Amor y Cohetes reinforces [a particular] conception of the brothers’ working relationship. It’s not one-upsmanship, it’s not trading eights, it’s more a matter of pulling from a collective pool of ideas about comics." – Sean T. Collins, Attentiondeficitdisorderly

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 4 [Sold Out]

Interview: For the L.A. Times Hero Complex blog, Deborah Vankin talks to Robert Crumb (actually an outtake from a slightly longer Crumb interview done for a feature on Joyce Farmer running in the print version of the Times soon): "Maybe I’m less angry. I don’t know. Actually, I’m not less angry. When I go back to America, after a few days I am once again filled with this kind of angry alienation and disgust with this thing there that America has got — you have no idea how pervasive it is there. The public relations and propaganda put out by the corporate mono-culture there is so pervasive."

Warehouse Finds: Signed Complete Crumb Hardcovers!!
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Robert Crumb 6 Oct 2010 11:41 AM

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 11

As part of our warehouse move, we've stumbled across a tiny cache of hardcover editions of the COMPLETE CRUMB COMICS VOLUME 11, first editions complete with signed plates. Even though the REGULAR hardcovers, which have long been sold out too, are selling for north of $100 from on-line stores we're offering these signed ones (only one per customer!) for the original $75 price. What a bargain!

We also found some signed plates for COMPLETE CRUMB VOLUME 10, and can thus once again offer this hardcover for $75. (The only other signed hardcover still in stock is COMPLETE CRUMB VOLUME 6.)

There are VERY FEW of these left, so we'd encourage anyone who wants to buy them to call us at 1-800-657-1100 muy pronto. Trust snail mail or even the website's 24-hour turnaround and you may be S.O.L.
