Kafka wrote in the tradition of the great Yiddish storytellers, whose stock-in-trade was bizarre fantasy tainted with hilarity and self-abasement. What he added to this tradition was an almost unbearably expanded consciousness. Here, Mairowitz's brilliant text and the illustrations and comic panels of the world's greatest cartoonist, Robert Crumb, help readers understand the essence of Kafka and provide insight beyond the cliche |Kafkaesque|, peering through Kafka's glass wall like no other book before. Must-have for admirers of Kafka and Crumb alike.
A book length collaboration between two underground legends, Charles Bukowski and Robert Crumb. Bukowski's last journals candidly and humorously reveal the events in the writer's life as death draws inexorably nearer, thereby illuminating our own lives and natures, and to give new meaning to what was once only familiar.
Gathered here are the collected works of the titans of adults comics ? legendary underground cartoonist R. Crumb and the "high priest of comic-book naturalism" (Newsweek) Harvey Pekar. The comic collision of these underground luminaries is funny, obsessive, ever-so-slightly neurotic, but always biting and honest.

The release of the hit movie American Splendor raised Harvey Pekar's popularity to an entirely new level, and Titan's tie-in graphic novel was a runaway critical and commercial success. Now comes Our Movie Year, a brand new graphic novel, in which Pekar portrays his sudden rise, as seen through his hilariously grumpy point of view: from Sundance, to Cannes, the Oscars and beyond...Once Harvey was...
This is the third book in successful series of occasional sketches by the grandfather of American alternative comix. These sketches reveal another side-- a contemplative side-- to the controversial artist, renowned for his taboo-breaking satires of American society. With his intricate cross-hatching and observant line, the drawings here show Crumb as an imaginative chronicler of everyday life.
