I will never give any of these volumes less than five stars but this one was kind of weak. It's the kind of weakness though that comes from a person figuring out how to do what he does at a professional level and trying to get it as right as possible. No overwhelming grotesqueness and weird artistic flourish yet but some great stories. I'm reading Tennessee Williams' 20's concurrently as I read through Crumb's and of course live through my own and it's very nice to see everyone being a big weird ...more

Known artistically for his vertical shading and crosshatch illustrations, as well as his crude and hypersexualized humor, this collection of comics featuring everyone’s favorite hipster cat is a brief look into the career of Robert Crumb. The third part of an expansive (and growing) series offering a complete and retrospective look into Crumb’s career primarily focuses on Fritz the Cat, an anthropomorphic cat college student looking for some kicks. Often cynical, Fritz navigates the hipster and ...more

Some good stories featuring Fritz the Cat. Not too happy with the format or size of this series, but the paper quality and binding is nice. I really love the more crazy misogynistic stuff by Crumb, and this is fairly tame compared to most of the stuff that I have read. This is a fun concept. Take a character, make him cute and then make him do some bad things. Had the character been human and creepy looking, this would have been a flop.

I've been reading Crumb comics here and there since high school, and I've always been enamored with it. This particular volume gives us an introduction to Crumb's most notorious creation, Fritz the Cat, an oversexed, underemployed furry ball of pretense that reminds me a great deal of my college roommate at his scummy, Camus-quoting, skirt-chasing depths. It was pretty funny when I was 16 or whatever, but now that I'm surrounded by horny twenty-something bohemians, its all the funnier.

Gotta be honest: i didn't read or even look at much of this book, including the surprisingly long introduction. Mr Crumb's work just isn't for me.
