R. Crumb's Underground

78 Quarterly Magazine
78 Quarterly- art copyright R. Crumb- one of the pieces in the retrospective
Here is the printed cover of 78 Quarterly and the original drawing of Robert Johnson by R. Crumb below it. We have all 12 issues at home. These are rare, and I'm not sure if there will ever be any more issues, but we still have a subscription. R. Crumb is well-known not only for his amazing and masterful comic drawings, but he is a long-time hokum music lover, collector and player.
"A massive Robert Crumb retrospective curated by Todd Hignite just opened at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. It runs from March 16 to July 8, 2007.The show includes over 200 of the best examples of Crumb's art, spanning his prolific and rich lifetime body of work."
