This one is for real Crumb fans only (one step down from the hardcore fans). We're rolling along here on our way to the Crumb style most people are familiar with. And the exception of Little Billy Bean and the Notes and Farbs, which are just okay, we think this is all great stuff.

Most of it is unpublished elsewhere.

At the moment of this writing, the Fantagraphics website says a reprint of this volume is AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER.
