From the back cover:
"The Complete Crumb Comics Vol. 16: "The Mid-1980s" continues the multi-volume, chronological series comprising the complete works of the legendary cartoonist R. Crumb, one of America’s most original, trenchant, and uncompromising artists..."
From Crumb’s introduction:
"By the Spring of 1986 I was in a state of profound suicidal depression. I seriously contemplated ending it all. I felt like I had been run over by a steam-roller. All was pain - psychic pain. My neurotic compulsion to be loved by all of humanity had caused me to waste huge amounts of my time and life energy on tedious nonsense that was of no real value or interest to me. Of course, everything is a learning experience. We all go through what we have to go through on the road to knowledge and wisdom and what not... Hopefully."
This volume includes the years 1985 - 1987 with an introduction by Mr. Crumb himself. Includes a color section.
1st printing - new as published.
