    Liberation (French Magazine) called me and said, “Crumb, can you do a cartoon for us? About what you think about this, you know, you are a major cartoonist, and you live in France.” So I thought about it. I spent a lot of time thinking about it. I’m doing the dishes, or whatever, I was thinking, “What should I do for that cartoon…” I had a lot of ideas.

    Robert Crumb is considered by many to be the single best cartoonist America has ever produced. The creator of counter culture icons like Fritz the Cat, the Keep On Truckin guy and Mr Natural, Mr. Crumb was inducted into the comic book Hall of Fame in 1991, the same year he moved his family to France, where he has resided ever since. Writer Celia Farber reached him at his home in Sauve, France on Friday, January 9, 2015, to talk about the massacre of cartoonists and others in Paris this week.

    Celia Farber: Have journalists been calling you today to talk about the assassinations at Charlie Hedbo? Are you willing to talk about it?

    Robert Crumb: You are the first American journalist that’s asked me to talk about it. I’ll talk about it, yeah.

    No other journalists have called you? Really?

    No, you’re the only one. You don’t have journalists over there anymore, what they have is public relations people. That’s what they have over in America now. Two-hundred and fifty thousand people in public relations. And a dwindling number of actual reporters and journalists

    Love his comment about having 250,000 PR people instead of journalists.

    That's why I included the quote. The actual article in the Observer is longer and very interesting.

    I watched a documentary about this guy (and his brother????) many years ago.
    It was fascinating.
    hahahah he was making some comics and the writing got smaller and smaller.

    The movie "Crumb" is quite fascinating. His family, especially his brothers, were a bunch of lunatics. His one brother would eat a long piece of string so slowly that he would be shitting it out while he was still eating it, I'm pretty sure he wound up committing suicide.

    he has one character called angelfood McSpade.

    i'd post the pictures but i'd get yelled at.

    i saw the movie too. what a odd world he lived in. the family was so fucked up. it makes me sad that every body didn't have a nice semi-normal childhood.
