Book Description

27 Jun 2003 Waiting for Food (Book 3)
This is the third book in a successful series of art books by the grandfather of American alternative comix. These sketches reveal another side - a contemplative side - to the controversial artist, renowned for his taboo-breaking satires of American society. Through his intricate cross-hatching and observant line the drawings here show Crumb as an imaginative chronicler of everyday life. Crumb is arguably the most renowned artist of our times and this beautifully produced art book will make the ideal gift for any Crumb fan, both new and old alike.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You Deserve a Break Today" 25 Mar 2003
By Zube - Published on Amazon.com
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 crumbmuseum.com for a tribute to the Master, Robert (R) Crumb.
