New Crumbx2

I've been trying to look at some R.Crumb sketchbook pictures on his website for ages now so I finally gave them a shot on one of the Mac computers at school. To my surprise I was able to view them all!! I was drooling over it all…


Also picked up Sophie’s new one yesterday (Belly Button #2) and it wasn’t disappointing. Heather even said reading it surpassed the thrill of a new archie comic as a kid! Great little stories especially the autobiographical ones. There’s something about the comic medium that lends it self to those personal stories that just wouldn’t work in prose. Maybe it has to do with the personal nature of drawing, of committing a line to paper…
