The Underground Comix Era climaxed with Arcade — forerunner of both Weirdo and RAW — and this volume of The Complete Crumb Comics features Robert Crumb's typically brilliant contributions to the magazine's first year: For example : "Big Ass Topics", "Let's Talk Sense About This Here Modern America," a vintage Crumb rant, where Bob takes on everything invented after, oh, 1932 or so. Youth culture — ugh. Pop music — ack. Mass media — arrrghh! "That's right kids, I'm just a crabby old kill-joy!" says R.C., "That's Life!" covers the very short life of country musician Tommy Grady — he was gunned down in 1931, shortly after his first recording, done in a makeshift studio in a Memphis hotel room. This is one of Crumb's earliest blues musician bios, and also a tribute to old record collectors, "Frosty the Snowman and His Friends" brings in a little holiday cheer when Crumb has his lovable cartoon characters blow up Nelson Rockefeller's mansion! Fight the Capitalist Oppressor! And... Merry Christmas!
