Comics that made Crumb famous ― against his will. First time in hardcover!Robert Crumb’s first great character ― in fact, his second-best-known character next to Mr. Natural ― was Fritz the Cat, the horny, hip-talking feline whose success (especially after the release of the animated movie, which Crumb loathed) caused Crumb to kill him off. The Life and Death of Fritz the Cat, back in print as an inexpensive hardcover as a companion to The Book of Mr. Natural, contains all the Fritz stories from the earliest sketchbook-drawn tales (“Hey, Ol’ Cat!” and “Fritz Comes On Strong”) to the wild adventure stories (“Special Agent for the C.I.A.”) to the classic “peak” Fritz stories (“Fritz the No-Good”) all the way to the despairing “Fritz the Cat, Superstar” with its infamous ice-pick ending. Plus an introduction by Crumb, sketchbook pages, and more. 96 pages of black-and-white comics

Fritz the Cat romped his way right into icon status by indulging in the drugs and free love of the 1960s. It was through Fritz that legendary cartoonist R. Crumb delivered most of his satirical commentary on that tumultuous decade.The Life and Death of Fritz the Cat chronicles Fritz's adventures from his early days as an idealistic college student to the bitter end, where the burned-out boozing and womanizing Fritz sees his stardom fizzle. This comprehensive collecti-on of Fritz comics is a fun record of a provocative period in American social history.About the Author:
