Crumb's "Heroes of the Blues"



Speaking of trading cards, Robert Crumb came out with a series of Blues, Jazz and Country trading cards in 1980, which had brief bios on the back.  These cards were eventually collected into a book that comes with a very nice CD.  Crumb himself loves picking on the banjo.

  1. Nice illustration. He really is very talented, in spite of how amazingly weird he is.

  2. The wierdness is the great thing about him. His "The R. Crumb Handbook" is a wonderful overview of his life. There is also a CD with some samples of his banjo pickings.
