Fantagraphics posted a bunch of photos from the pages of the new printing of The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 17: Cave Wimp. Above, the first page to Crumb's 1989 love letter to MAD creator Harvey Kurtzman.
The 17th volume of the comprehensive and multiple award-winning Complete Crumb Comics series — nominated for both 2003 Harvey and Eisner Awards — completes the 1980s and leads into the 1990s. This was a creatively fertile period for Crumb, who had given up the editorial reins of his own legendary Weirdo magazine, allowing him to get back to the proverbial drawing board. Included are Crumb's contributions to Weirdo from this period, as well as work from Whole Earth Review, Zap Comix, Premiere magazine, as well as many other rare gems. Featured are classics including "Cave Wimp" — the story of the first nerd — and "A Short History of America," amongst other Crumb classics. This volume, as with all volumes, includes a new introduction by Crumb as well as a new cover. The Complete Crumb series leaves no stone unturned, publishing everything from Crumb's most well-known comics to little-seen commercial art and rarely-if-ever seen treasures from private collections and the artist's archives.
