The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 11 by Robert Crumb

The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 11 (New Softcover Printing)
By Robert Crumb

MR. NATURAL COMMITED TO A MENTAL INSTITUTION!!!

This freshly reprinted volume contains Crumb classics Dirty Laundry #2 (the ground-breaking Crumb/Kominsky jam), the last of the Arcade strips, full-cover covers for books, comics and LPs, and Crumb’s complete 40-page epic Mr. Natural serial from the pages of the Village Voice. In it, our hero, having given up on the "wise man" business, has sent away all his students and lives a quiet life. But during a particularly arduous meditation, he wrestles with the Devil, and at last achieves total enlightenment.

He's locked up in a nut house right away, of course.

Thus endeth the Age of Aquarius.

Other classic stories include "I Once Lived the Life of a Millionaire" (the Snoid vs. The Revolution) and "Josephine and the Cross-Eyed Quadroon" (which covers just about all the bases, political incorrectness-wise).

Re-live the 20th Century with Crumb!

136-page b&w/color 8.5" x 11" softcover • $19.99

Jeremy Eaton on Crumb's Underground
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert CrumbJeremy Eatonart 1 May 2008 8:17 AM
Jeremy Eaton surveys the just-ended R. Crumb show at Seattle's Frye Museum. It was amazing having that Crumb show up for the last two months or so. It felt like we were living in a parallel universe where Crumb was a more ubiquitous artistic presence in this town than Dale Chihuly. The amount of books by R. Crumb that were purchased in this town over the last two months is going to cause ripples that will reverberate for generations. In 2020, everyone in Seattle will look like this guy.

Hajdu at Town Hall / Crumb at the Frye
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Robert Crumbevents 14 Apr 2008 12:39 PM

Please join us this Thursday, April 17 in welcoming David Hajdu to Seattle. A longtime friend of Fantagraphics, Hajdu is the author of The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic Book Scare and How it Changed America, which examines the hysteria surrounding the popularity of comics in the Cold War era. Hajdu is music critic for the New Republic and author of Positively 4th Street. He’ll be speaking on the subject of “Outsiders in the Panels” at 7:30 at Town Hall, 1119 Eight Avenue in Seattle. Tickets are $8 ($6 students), available at www.nextbook.org.

Also this Thursday evening at 7:00 PM, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery’s resident curator Larry Reid will speak at the Frye Art Museum, 704 Terry Avenue in Seattle. Reid will present a slide lecture on the topic “WEIRDOS: Seattle’s Alternative Comics Culture in the Context of R. Crumb’s Underground.” If you have yet to see the phenomenal Crumb exhibition at the Frye, this represents one of the last opportunities to view this comprehensive collection and explore Crumb’s considerable influence on comics in the Northwest. Admission is free. Reid assures us that you’ll get your money’s worth. More info at 206.622.9250.

And don’t miss Drew Friedman’s amazing exhibition “The Fun Never Stops!” continuing through May 6 at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, 1201 S. Vale St. in Seattle.

Hope to see you all soon.

Comics Forum, R. Crumb's Underground, Frye Museum, 03/27/08

More Flog! Photo Friday, this time with audio! Last night at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, moderator Gary Groth was joined by Peter Bagge, Ellen Forney, and Jim Woodring for a lively discussion about Robert Crumb and a range of related topics. More photos can be seen on Flickr, in regular and slideshow styles.

Plus! Download the complete audio of this event (24.5 MB MP3). It's a bit low-fi, but mostly intelligible. (We are still working on bringing you a full-fledged podcast... stay tuned for that.) We've also archived this feature on our website at this page.

Jeremy Eaton on the Crumb Exhibit

Jeremy Eaton wrote up the big Crumb show here in town for the Beacon Hill News. Nice piece, better than any of the major media coverage I've seen.

Forney on Crumb Show
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Robert CrumbEllen Forney 31 Jan 2008 11:16 AM

Over at the Stranger's website, our own Ellen Forney has teamed up with the Stranger's Kelly O to talk about the R. Crumb show that just opened at the Frye Museum here in Seattle. I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but I will be listening and so should you. 

I could go on and on about how great the Crumb exhibition is, but simply put, it might be the greatest comic art exhibition I've ever seen and if you like comics enough to read this blog and are anywhere near Seattle, you're out of your mind if you don't make a special trip to the Frye in the next two months.  

And speaking of Forney, we have this to look forward to next Saturday, Feb. 9:
