There have been other attempts at R. Crumb checklists and bibliographies published over the years, the best of which was Don Fiene’s R. Crumb Checklist, originally published in 1981 by Boatner Norton Press; it represented a landmark volume in Crumb scholarship. Now, after several years of research and 30 years since that invaluable reference work, Carl Richter delivers The Crumb Compendium, a comprehensive guide to everything Crumb has published during his 45-year career in cartooning.
The Crumb Compendium lists and organizes all of Crumb’s published work to date: comics, papers and other periodicals, books, catalogs, posters, juvenilia, cards and all other printed ephemera. Records and CD’s as well as merchandise like buttons, statues and shirts are also included, as well as listings of articles and interviews, characters and comic strip titles and published photographs.
Richter’s research is impeccable — he has been a valued consultant on The Complete Crumb Comics library since its inception — and virtually all listed items were examined first hand without relying on the research of others. Most of the material is from the author’s own collection; other items were examined in private collections and university archives. In a few cases photostats or scans from other collections and institutions were acquired, and Crumb himself served as a consultant to ensure the most accurate information.
The Crumb Compendium will be heavily illustrated with rare pieces from Crumb’s career.
