The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 17 by Robert Crumb – Photoset Preview

"The Complete Crumb series is especially useful in reminding us that Crumb has continued to evolve through the sixties. His more recent work is quieter and more literary… The most recent installment, collecting material originally published in Weirdo magazine, contains some of Crumb's best work." – The National Post

"The Complete Crumb Comics is an indispensable and beautifully executed effort." – L.A. Weekly

"This collection is a fascinating insight into one of the most talented and intriguing cartoonists to have graced us with his art. The entire series is highly recommended." – Library Journal

"This volume contains what, in my humble opinion, are two of the best conceived, most complex stories I ever drew: 'Cave Wimp' and the last 'Mode O'Day,' Composing plotlines for stories was never one of my strong points. I always preferred to more or less make it up as I went along and let it resolve itself at the end. These two stories are more tightly plotted and 'layered' than I had been capable of before (or possibly since.). There's a reason why this happened at that particular time, why I suddenly acquired this higher level of story-telling skill. It was not something I intentionally set out to do. I was pushed into it by circumstances that I allowed to carry me along, as usual." – R. Crumb, from the introduction to this volume
