Product Description


"One Of The Most Prolific Artists Of His Time." - Library Journal "Called 'The Brueghel Of The Last Half Of The 20th Century' By No Less A Skeptic Than Establishment Art Critic Robert Hughes, Cartoonist R. Crumb Has Produced Some Of The Smuttiest Yet Piercingly Affecting And Quintessentially American Art Since The 1960s." - Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Robert Crumb is a legend in comix. Loved and hated internationally, he is one of the founders of alternative comix in the 1960s. Controversial, to put it mildly, he satirized every institution with smashed taboos. Crumb has become an icon of the American underground of the 1960s to comix fans and pop culture buffs. He lives in France, illustrating and designing books and records.

"You Deserve a Break Today" 25 Mar. 2003
By Zube - Published on
Format: Hardcover
OK, I'm a Crumb fan. We ain't all, but many of us are, and I'm one of the many. Waiting For Food 3 is a beautiful collection of doodles and sketches by R. Crumb while... well, while waiting for food. This book is a collection of his restaurant placemat drawings. As R. proudly says in his intro dated July 2002, "I'm no longer simply doodling to pass the time 'til the food arrives. I'm EARNING MONEY while waiting to be served!" Good, he's having fun... he deserved it. This guy (almost) single handedly started the underground comic craze of the 60's and 70's. He started Zap Comix, writing and drawing the first two issues completely by himself. Check out for a tribute to the Master, Robert (R) Crumb.
