R. Crumb has a a couple of new re-released comics up for sale on his site – Hup 1 and Hup 2 (part of a 4 part series collection). Check them out on his official website – there is some great back story on these on the product page as well! He also has a ton of work up for sale – if you have never seen one of his prints in person, they are awesome and the certificates that come with them are excellent collectors items on their own.
Hup 1 starts with the Ruff-tuff Cream-Puffs as they Take Charge! Crumb amazingly predicts the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld Administration, which occurred some twenty years after he drew the piece. Next Crumb brings back Mr. Natural! Then the famous My Troubles with Women Part 2 follows that and Crumb finishes with Mr. Natural’s return, but only this time with Cheryl Borck, the Devil Girl!
Hup 2 presents The Mighty Power Fems, Crumb’s x-rated satire of super hero comics. Next is his hilarious If I Were King, finishing off with the continuation of Flakey Foont’s obsession with The Devil Girl in The Meeting. Who could blame him?
