This volume is a mixed bag. Several pages are reproduced elsewhere, for example in Gotta Have 'Em and Drawn Together. Without a doubt, the highlight here is Footsy. Mother Hulda gives us a look at the new-school Crumb girl, i.e. rather unattractive. Not the finest volume in the series, but still pretty good. Did we mention Footsy?

At the moment of this writing, the Fantagraphics website says this volume is SOLD OUT.
