American cartoonist Robert Crumb is not only The Father of Underground Comics in the 1960s, but his ongoing body of work, at once artistic, autobiographical, and journalistic, has documented the birth, life, and aging of America’s Baby Boom Generation, its exterior worlds of politics, social mores, and sexuality, and its interior, experiential explorations, both psychological and psychedelic.
In many ways, Crumb is The Bob Dylan of Comics, in that he opened up the field of comics for individual self-expression, just like Dylan did for rock music.
Join New York Adventure Club and pop culture historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art), as we explore a “greatest hits” of Crumb’s vast catalog of comic artworks, from his earliest comics as a teenager coming of age in the late-‘50s, to his Underground Comix explosion in the ‘60s, and his decade-defining works of the ‘70s and succeeding decades, up to and including his still-subversive and eye-opening artworks of the 21st Century. And more!
