  1. Wow...excellent!
    You nailed the Crumb style pretty well.

  4. I'm actually reading this right now...it's uhhh...not good. I knew it was Robert Crumb, word for word retelling the book of Genesis...but man, it's Robert Crumb retelling word for word the book of Genesis...not great reading material.

  5. I feel you, Jon. I got this from the library, started reading the first few pages, then just looked at the pictures.

  6. Actually I thought it was (pardon the biblical pun) kinda revelatory. All those "begats" do get tedious, though.
