SOPHIE CRUMB is the talented 20-something daughter of legendary underground off-color cartoonist and hyper-realist scribbler . . ROBERT CRUMB.
ALINE KOMINSKY-CRUMB is his wife, and a legendary comic book artist in her own right. and, oh my god, where have you been, if you don’t know her work, twisted sister ?
this is gonna be one knock-out show, of that I’m sure. skills. skills, skills. wit and, in-your-face humor.
both SOPHIE & ALINE are just as outrageous cartoonists as ROBERT, (too much info !! haha slurp slurp) and both are equally excellent draftpersons – each with their very unique, but linked family graphic style.
it’s hard to escape, or define that amazingly characteristic and FLUID ‘comic book’ roll of the line.
for want of a better word.
so, can we say comic books . . are artisanal, and actually sprung from ancient roots as well ?
can we say: communication. with a capital C.
can we say . . relevant ? revealing, provocative, and even . . threatening.
can we say: WICKED ?!!!
WICKED, GOOD. SHARP, smart & funnie.
with ROBERT CRUMB as the very rude, and RIGHT ON (!!) horn dog ghost in the room, can we say SATAN is just as alive and well in NYC – as he is everywhere else ?
KEEP ON TRUCKIN’, SATAN.
