Review: The Complete Crumb Comics, Vol. 1: The Early Years of Bitter Struggle (The Complete Crumb Comics #1)

User Review  - j_ay - Goodreads

As a stand-alone comic, it's a 2 star package, but as historical look back on how R Crumb came to be, it's pretty interesting. Read full review

Review: The Complete Crumb Comics, Vol. 15: Featuring Mode O'day and Her Pals (The Complete Crumb Comics #15)

User Review  - Hamish - Goodreads

Crumb is a fantastic artist, but I'm not sure I feel very strongly about his writing. Two different sources told me this era is his best, but I think I should have gone with the 60s stuff instead. Read full review
