*Undergrounds: After his reputation was established, Robert Crumb used his notoriety to leverage a regular publication from Last Gasp to showcase his and other underground cartoonists’ works. Weirdo launched in 1981 as Crumb’s answer to Spiegelman’s Raw, which had attracted controversy because of its non-linear storytelling and (some said) pretentious attitude. Introducing Peter Bagge and Dori Seda, amongst others, to professional publication, Weirdo continued to have substantial input from Crumb, even when he relinquished editorship first to Bagge and then to Aline Kominsky. The series ended in 1993, having presented a cavalcade of underground stars on its pages. We have issues back in stock from #4 to #27.
