    Yeah, Crumb might not annoy feminists quite as much if he didn't insist on baiting them ... He claims to be just joking, and I tend to believe him. There are misogynistic themes in his work, but it's not as if he endorses such behavior in real life. As he has often said, "It's just lines on paper, folks." Random thoughts: Has Fantagraphics ever considered releasing a companion recording of some kind--CD, LP, whatever--of Crumb's music? I've heard the odd track here and there on the radio over the Yeah, Crumb might not annoy feminists quite as much if he didn't insist on baiting them ...

I've heard the odd track here and there on the radio over the years, and would love to hear more. "The Many Faces of R. Crumb" is lovely, one of my favorites from this era. The myriad copyright notices all over "Remember Keep On Truckin'?" made me laugh. It helps if you know the story of the original "Keep On Truckin'" piece. It basically went viral, but, because Crumb neglected to copyright it, he never received any royalties as it spread far and wide ... "Fuzzy the Bunny in 'Nut Factory Blues'" is another uncommonly good story. "Brilliant American Maniacs Series" seems to be the very first collaboration between Crumb and Harvey Pekar. I would love to get my hands on a copy of Dana Crumb's cookbook, Eat It. Just the recipe titles alone sound delicious. "Mr. Know-It-All in 'Four More Years'", written after Nixon's reelection, comes across amazingly similar in many ways to the feeling I remember from November 2016 when Trump was elected. The more things change ... "Squirrely the Squirrel": skewering cartoon violence years before Itchy and Scratchy were a thing ... All in all, one of the more memorable volumes of this series so far. Highly recommended!

    Certainly a mixed bag, but there are a few strips here that really elevate the whole thing.

    Things got bitter. And although Crumb stuck to his cute zoomorphs and remarkably coherent drawing style, like the light counterpoint to Clay Wilson's vortices of amorality, there is no doubt that it is a less exuberant side that we are dealing with here. Stories like the two Little Aminals (no typo) and Nut Factory Blues are guaranteed to bring both smiles and shivers to many readers, and Squirrelly the Squirrel carries the negative parts of the "clever li'l animal" stereotype to the extreme.

Eat It is a pretty relaxed affair, mostly sketches of various culinary necessities, more or less humorous, with tuna casserole as the top o' the world, I guess. Many covers and stuff of their kind included, really nice, just like in the rest of the series. Some episodes where Bo Bo Bolinski, the archetypal drunkard, and the remarkably disturbing and loathsome character of Forky O'Donnell are allowed to shine, if one could classify what they're doing as such. And last, but not least, the title story, where I got pretty amazed (again) by Crumb's ability to fit cartoony, exaggerated characters and postures into perfectly erotic scenery (and make them even pretty, for that matter).

    I picked this up and read through it on a rainy afternoon at someone's house. Kinda cool to take a look at some old comics, I feel like I got a cool feel for the times these were created in. Most of my feel of the flower power days comes from movies and feel good memories from an older generation. I picked this up and read through it on a rainy afternoon at someone's house.

    My boyfriend picked this up from the comic shop on Oak for $20 and it was worth that for the "Pot Shots" alone. My boyfriend picked this up from the comic shop on Oak for $20 and it was worth that for the "Pot Shots" alone.
