October 17, 2012 Husband and wife cartoonists Robert and Aline Crumb have worked jointly on autobiographical comics for nearly four decades. The panels of their new graphic novel overflow with voluminous speech bubbles filled with the Crumbs' honest observations about anything and everything.
February 13, 2007 Underground comic book artist Robert Crumb created ZAP COMIX and is the artist behind such 1960s and 1970s icons as Mr. Natural, Fritz the Cat, and Keep-on-Truckin. His wife, Aline Kominsky Crumb, was one of the earliest underground female cartoonists. Her new book, Need More Love: A Graphic Memoir, chronicles her life and career. Robert's new book is The Sweeter Side of R. Crumb.
