Have you ever wondered what Robert Crumb thinks of the new issue of Blammo? Well, here’s a quote from a recent letter to my publisher Kilgore:
”Thanks for the copy of Blammo #7…I thought it was his best work yet…if he sticks with it he will soon reach the top ranks of comic-book artists…the story of the pathetic loser who gets conned by the girl on the bus was my favorite…his work advances both in the writing and the drawing…” — R.C.
The below comic is from The Hypo. It’s a part of the introduction to the book. All of the narration is written in a present tense, as if the story is unraveling presently and the present is the early to mid 1800’s.
