The book of Genesis by R Crumb( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nominated for three 2010 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards: From Creation to the death of Joseph, here are all 50 chapters of the Book of Genesis, revealingly illustrated as never before.Envisioning the first book of the bible like no one before him, R. Crumb, the legendary illustrator, reveals here the story of Genesis in a profoundly honest and deeply moving way. Originally thinking that we would do a take off of Adam and Eve, Crumb became so fascinated by the Bible's language, "a text so great and so strange that it lends itself readily to graphic depictions," that he decided instead to do a literal interpretation using the text word for word in a version primarily assembled from the translations of Robert Alter and the King James bible. Now, readers of every persuasion--Crumb fans, comic book lovers, and believers--can gain astonishing new insights from these harrowing, tragic, and even juicy stories. Crumb's Book of Genesis reintroduces us to the bountiful tree lined garden of Adam and Eve, the massive ark of Noah with beasts of every kind, the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by brimstone and fire that rained from the heavens, and the Egypt of the Pharaoh, where Joseph's embalmed body is carried in a coffin, in a scene as elegiac as any in Genesis. Using clues from the text and peeling away the theological and scholarly interpretation that have often obscured the Bible's most dramatic stories, Crumb fleshes out a parade of Biblical originals: from the serpent in Eden, the humanoid reptile appearing like an alien out of a science fiction movie, to Jacob, a "kind've depressed guy who doesn't strike you as physically courageous," and his bother, Esau, "a rough and kick ass guy," to Abraham's wife Sarah, more fetching than most woman at 90, to God himself, "a standard Charlton Heston-like figure with long white hair and a flowing beard."As Crumb writes in his introduction, "the stories of these people, the Hebrews, were something more than just stories. They were the foundation, the source, in writing of religious and political power, handed down by God himself." Crumb's Book of Genesis, the culmination of 5 years of painstaking work, is a tapestry of masterly detail and storytelling which celebrates the astonishing diversity of the one of our greatest artistic geniuses. Nominated for three 2010 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards: Best Adaptation from Another Work, Best Graphic Album, Best Writer/Artist. --

Kafka by David Zane Mairowitz( Book )

67 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Franz Kafka was described as living behind a 'glass wall'.

This book, helping us to see beyond the cliche 'Kafkaesque', is illustrated by legendary underground artist Robert Crumb
The captain is out to lunch and the sailors have taken over the ship by Charles Bukowski( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journals, with illustrations by Robert Crumb. Raw, iconoclastic, by turns rueful and hilarious, these last journals by Charles Bukowski have found their perfect match: the brilliant, outrageous comic art of Robert Crumb who has provided a portrait of the author plus twelve striking full-page drawings illustrating select passages from the text. Beginning in August 1991, these journals alternate between generous accounts of his gambling jaunts and the bizarre intrusions of fame: the interviewers, Hollywood glitterati, TV producers -- odd counterpoints to "the racetrack crowd ... the world brought down to size, life grinding against death and losing." Disarmingly candid, and salted with a particularly wry and gritty wisdom
