R. Crumb Strikes Again

R. Crumb, the famously subversive comics artist, allows a glimpse into his forthcoming Book of Genesis in a 12-page excerpt in this week’s New Yorker.  The book, due for release on October 19, offers an unconventional take on the Bible that is likely to provoke the religious right, according to The Guardian (UK), which also quoted Crumb saying that the book is “very visual. It’s lurid. Full of all kinds of crazy, weird things that will really surprise people.” Most libraries we checked did not show copies on order.
