Now we're really rolling along folks! We can now see where Crumb is going and sense where he may end up. Most of this volume is taken up by Fritz the Cat. And Fritz or not, most of it is great stuff! The ones in yellow are the ones we consider somewhat weaker.

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