Part biography, part comic book, and part media critique, the R. Crumb Handbook is a rich and colorful peek into the fascinating and quirky world of R. Crumb. In addition to numerous reprints of Crumb comic hits like Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural, the book also features new works by Crumb, including a hilarious dialogue between the artist and his wife. There are also reprints of record covers that Crumb has drawn over the years, as well as a CD of songs by the artist’s traditional band, R. Crumb and the Cheap Suit Serenaders. But most important, the Handbook helps provide a window into the man himself.
