The Complete Crumb Comics, Vol. 6: On the Crest of a Wave

Availability: Ready to download

Robert Crumb enters the '70s with this, the sixth volume in Fantagraphics Books' all-inclusive reprint series. This includes a couple of genuine rarities (some of them so obscure they didn't even make the Crumb Checklist), as well as all of Crumb's work from Big Ass #1, Zap #4, the remarkably offensive Snatch #3 and Jiz #1, the classic Despair, and the second issue of Moto Robert Crumb enters the '70s with this, the sixth volume in Fantagraphics Books' all-inclusive reprint series. This includes a couple of genuine rarities (some of them so obscure they didn't even make the Crumb Checklist), as well as all of Crumb's work from Big Ass #1, Zap #4, the remarkably offensive Snatch #3 and Jiz #1, the classic Despair, and the second issue of Motor City — classics all. The volume also includes a 16-page color section (with rare covers from the first three Gothic Blimp Works), a sumptuous new cover by Crumb, and an insightful intro by the Man himself (no, not Stan Lee). Absolutely indispensible!

    More prime comics by the poster boy for the underground. The 60's were becoming the 70's with these strips, and we see Crumb experimenting a bit with comics like "Stickman Funnies" and "Krude Kut Ups", neither of which look much like anything Crumb has done before or since. We also get more jam strips, with contributions from everyone from Gilbert Shelton to Harvey Kurtzman. The book also includes the infamous "Joe Blow" from Zap #4.

    My first experience reading anything by Crumb. I knew he was kinda preoccupied with sex from watching Terry Zwigoff's film, but I had no idea. Three quarters of these comics end with or involve the characters having sex. At a certain point, you wish Crumb would go with another theme or something. But man, was some of this stuff funny. Highlights: Eggs Ackley Among the Vulture Demonesses, Mr. Natural Takes a Vacation, Fuzzy the Bunny

    This volume seems almost solely occupied with sex. Even Crumb's introduction is more about sex than about his art. As such this volume may be the epitome of both the sixties counterculture and the sexual revolution. Brace yourself, however, for some controversial subjects, like rape, incest, and racism.Crumb's stories are pointless and hardly funny, but strangely entertaining nonetheless. Crumb's art reaches a peak here, as is emphasized by the few rather worthless comics made with other artists This volume seems almost solely occupied with sex.

Crumb's art reaches a peak here, as is emphasized by the few rather worthless comics made with other artists: Crumb's art stands out on these pages. An essential volume, not only for Robert Crumb lovers, but for interested in comics and in culture of the 1960s in general.
