    Still mostly sketches and comics done mainly for the amusement of himself and close friends and family. Not that that's a bad thing. Fritz the Cat really comes into his own with this volume. We also get to meet Roberta Smith, Office Girl, a comic strip that Crumb wrote and drew for the employee news bulletin at the American Greeting Card company where he worked. There's also a slightly darker tone that begins creeping into the artwork, a sign of Crumb's growing into his mature style.

This volume is more sketches than strips, and still ferocious amounts of early talent on display. Highly recommended, not just for this book, but for Crumb's work in general.

    Late 50s very early sixties drawings and doodling. Still searching for style and subjects, although some Fritz the Cat panels.

    I've got most of the Complete Crumb Comics now, and I've only managed to read 1 & 3 (and now 2) so far. They're one of the most comprehensive records of a major artist's development out there. I'd say the first two volumes are the least essential, with things not really picking up till Vol. 3. But even the early work shows signs of brilliance. I can't wait to read the rest of them.

    Giving this a number grade is ridiculous. These books are an act of archiving and shall be judged as such! Anyway, R. Crumb starts to slowly figure out his voice and we get the weirdest Charles Crumb comics yet. Beautiful.
