High Times With R. Crumb

HT_027_p035_Crumb_Interviews_Crumb_2-6

In November, 1977, High Times magazine published an interview with R. Crumb.  Nothing out of the ordinary there : two counterculture legends meeting for a civil heart to heart.

What’s different is that Crumb presented the interview in a six page comic format, which begs the question whether indeed this was not so much an interview by the magazine, as Crumb interviewing himself, and confronting himself with all the self-doubt and obsessions that plagued him around that time.

In any case, it’s a fascinating read, and another great insight in the troubled mind of America’s greatest underground cartoonist.
