    A really nice collection of some well written Crumb comics. There is a great intro from Crumb where he talks about working more from a plot, rather than just making up his stories as they go. You can really see the difference. A lot of Crumb stories seem to sort of turn in to the same story around page 2, but that's not the case here. It's also a nice cross section of the work Crumb does, as we get some Autobio stories, and some Crumb characters.

    What can I say about R Crumb that hasn't already been said multiple times by people more articulate than me? His books are impressive on so many levels: great art of course, interesting story lines, honest topics, and versatile skills. Volume 17 of the Complete Crumb comics contains many gems of Crumb's career: his pursuit of women, his correspondence of the academy awards, Mode O'Day, fatherhood, and a fascinating Cave Wimp story which (as Crumb himself admits it's the most expansive story he's What can I say about R Crumb that hasn't already been said multiple times by people more articulate than me?

Crumb has an interesting take on this. Along with this we get the standard Crumb goodies like comic covers, advertisements, greeting cards, scenery drawings and such which again show us just how massive Crumb's output has been throughout his life. Inspirational and frightening.
