2. The Complete Crumb Comics

Well, we gotta start somewhere, so it might as well be here. To start off with, you need all 17 volumes of THE COMPLETE CRUMB COMICS published by Fantagraphics Books.
The bad news: They're all out of print.
The good news: Some of them have been reprinted.

And as of January 2013, it looks as if more and more volumes are being reprinted by Fantagraphics. Check the link top right here...

Since we at the Crumb Compendium are not concerned with first issues and so forth, it doesn't matter whether you get the reprints or the original issues.

However, jumping ahead of ourselves a bit, you should try to get the REPRINT of VOLUME 1 because it has more pages than the original printing.

We will go over each volume in detail later on. You can still get all of the books, for example on eBay, but it may be an arduous and expensive task. Good luck!

(We know of an entire set that "went missing" in the mail somewhere between Texas and Rotterdam...)
