Parting Shot: The Cheesecake Hypocrisy of the Newspaper That Called R. Crumb ‘Smutty’


This screenshot from the newspaper that decried Robert Crumb as a "sex pervert" and his art as "smutty" -- prompting the cancellation of his trip to the Graphic Festival in Sydney, Australia -- leaves us wondering when we can expect a similarly outraged, alarmist op-ed from author Jesse Phillips about the smutty, perverted news coverage of The Daily Telegraph...

Robert Crumb Cancels Australia Festival Appearance After Being Branded ‘Sex Pervert’

‘Comics Stripped’ at the Museum of Sex


While we at ComicsAlliance tend to focus our world-weary minds on the more imaginative, awe-inspiring and perhaps childish material produced in the comics medium, the art form has of course been the conduit through which far more subversive, humorous and tantalizing statements have been made...

Custom Made R. Crumb Sculpture Stands At 40 Inches With 28 Points Of Articulation


I am very fond of custom toymaking. It's a practice that can yield some wildly imaginative results when expertly executed, or at least some laughable ones when handled by a less capable artist. Today's entry falls firmly in the former category...

Some Christians Afraid to Look at Robert Crumb’s Illustrated ‘Book of Genesis’


Robert Crumb's illustrated version of the "Book of Genesis" is out, and it's incredible, and guess who's upset about it. Christians! The amazing part about this particular controversy is that instead of getting up in arms about comics with gay people in them or Japanese cartoons with comedic nudity, they're actually upset with the Bible, and it is blowing my mind...

Flower Power: The Greatest Hippies in Comics


Hippies. God bless em, they really think a lot of themselves, don't they? Isn't it great when fuzzy ole Uncle Hippie gathers the brood down to the biodegradable teepee for tall tales of the Sixties? "Pot and acid grew on lampposts!" he preaches. "Flowers stopped bullets! I pleasured Joni Mitchell with an Abba Zabba!"

Wow, awesome, Uncle Hippie! You ruined drug enforcement, sex with random strangers and dandelion kevlar for everyone! You had a great time and I was punished for it – you're literally the opposite of Jesus, so maybe you should stop dressing like Salvation Army Messiah.

When you're in high school, hippies are cool. They bucked the system; they changed the world, man. When you're older and in the world, the foul stench of hastily-applied patchouli oil atop three weeks of not bathing evokes a torrent of bile so hellish it could knock a man's teeth out. I've been to twenty Phish concerts. I know what I'm talking about.

Not all hippies are bad. Some actually did some good, positive things for the world. They fought corruption and racial inequality, challenged conventional thoughts on war. But mostly, they went to music festivals.

"Hulk" director Ang Lee recently smashed some serious peace and love on all the puny humans with "Taking Woodstock," featuring deadpan icon Eugene Levy, quirky comedian Demetri Martin, and Sabretooth in a dress. It is with that same spirit, and in the continuum of the blinding God-light of Forever and the mystical dragon breath of the Universal Birth Canal, we present the most notable hippies in comics.
