Today at the Whitechapel Gallery, we viewed the satirical comic strips of Robert Crumb -- sometimes described as the godfather of the underground comics movement. I rarely read comic books or graphic novels, bar the odd Sandman or Akira, but I enjoy Crumb's irreverent and sardonic take on his own and American life, and his dense, black and white graphics packed with action.

Robert Crumb in The Guardian:

+ G2 in Crumbland
+ "America has become this soulless suburban culture"
+ "I'd rather be dead than mediocre"
