Fantagraphics continues to keep underground cartoonist R. Crumb's (The Book of Genesis Illustrated) oeuvre in print and readily available.
"Cave Wimp" (Vol. 17) completes the 1980s and leads into the 1990s, a creatively fertile period for Crumb, who had given up the editorial reins of his own Weirdo magazine to get back to the proverbial drawing board. Included are Crumb's contributions to Weirdo from this period, as well as work from Whole Earth Review, Zap Comix, Premiere magazine, and many other rare gems. Featured are classics including the title story "Cave Wimp" — the story of the first nerd — and "A Short History of America," amongst others. This volume includes a new introduction by Crumb, full-color cover portfolio sections, and a brand new cover.
