Andrea Pazienza, Translator: Jamie Richards


On sale date: July 4, 2017

In this graphic novel, presented in English for the first time, the Italian "Crumb" portrays a lost generation of late 1970s/early 1980s teenagers coping with family problems, school, sex, and drugs.

A true visionary, with a fluid line and an uncanny sense of color and composition, Pazienza’s innovative graphic style served up stories that were iconoclastic, outrageous, humorous, and deeply personal, often based on himself and his microcosm of friends and collaborators. Pazienza was a revolutionary cartoonist who ushered an underground sensibility to Italian and European comics, breaking from the more staid tradition of genteel adult (and children’s) graphic albums


"This is a book that is individualistic, weirdly humorous, sometimes metaphysical and usually offensive, but what elevates it into much more than a curio is Pazienza’s art. It evolves in mind-melting patterns as the months and years go by, from a scruffy, Gilbert Shelton-esque territory to beautiful full-color fantasies." — Bookgasm

"Quite possibly the vital global comics release of the season." — The Comics Journal
