by Jon B. Cooke Author

This anthology chronicles the story of Weirdo magazine as well as the entire history of the rise of alternative comics in the 80s and 90s. Jon Cooke's massive collection of publications and cartoons from the time period focus on the the low-brow underground magazine, Weirdo, and founder R. Crumb, who is often considered one of the most influential comics to come out of the alternative comic era. Explore the raunchy satire and depraved wit of the legendary cartoonist in what Crumb himself referred to as "the definitive work on the subject" even though he's "not sure how important any of [it] is."
