Crumb Retrospective on UK Newspaper Site

The Guardian Unlimited (guardian.co.uk), the online counterpart to the popular UK newspaper, has been running a retrospective all week on the work of Robert Crumb. Every day they’ve been posting more content from “The R Crumb Handbook” and discussing some sites dedicated to Crumb.

The series of posts will culminate with a live, on stage interview with the famed underground cartoonist on March 18 at 8:20pm, at the National Film Theatre in London, England.

Despite Crumb’s aversion, some might say hatred, for modern technology the rebellious spirit in underground comics that he spear-headed in the 60’s certainly thrives today in the world of independent web comics.
