Rate this:
The 13th volume of The CompleteCrumb Comics showcases the late 1970s, when Crumb's character the Snoidfirst appeared. That Crumb creation is a devilish imp, all id and no conscience,that some say is an alter ego of Crumb. Other highlights here include American Splendor collaborations with the late Harvey Pekar and a colorsection of covers Crumb drew for records by old-time blues and jazz musiciansthat beautifully convey his nostalgia for America's musical past. It alsoincludes one of Crumb's most acclaimed works, "A Short History of America,"whose 12 panels chart the nation's progress -- or deterioration --from unspoiled pastoral landscape to a strip mall wasteland. Crumb's brotherMaxon, whom viewers of the documentary film Crumb will remember as animpecunious yogi who sleeps on a bed of nails, contributes an idiosyncraticintroduction offering a unique perspective on Robert's earlyyears.
