Drawn Together by Aline + R. Crumb


Rumored for years, Drawn Together finally charts the daily exploits + erotic craziness of this “First Couple” of comics! Who could have imagined that in 1972, when Aline Kominsky, a Long Island escapee + bodaciously talented artist, broke her foot one rainy fall day, it would result in the most unique collaboration in comics history? Laid up in her house, she was persuaded by R. Crumb, her nerdy, neurotic boyfriend, to pass the time drawing together a “two-man” comic. The result is a jaw-dropping yet tender account, not only of the joys + challenges of a legendary marriage but also of the obstacles faced by struggling female artists. In Drawn Together, our foremost male-female cartooning couple recall their success at shocking America with Weirdo Magazine, the life-altering birth of their precocious daughter Sophie, + their astonishing move to the safe haven of France. With an irresistible introduction + a striking four-color section, Drawn Together becomes a graphic cause-célebre + a must-have for any comics devotee. Hardcover. 272 pages.
