The Book of Mr. Natural
Over 100 pages of vintage Crumb comics starring the white-bearded, diminutive sage-cum-charlatan Mr Natural, ranging from charming, freewheeling early 1970s stories to the disturbing, controversial 1990s stories, including the entire 40-page 'Mr Natural and Devil Girl' epic. Crumb's Mr. Natural is probably the most famous underground character of all, meaning readers will not want to miss the chance to snatch up this jam-packed collection from one of the all-time masters.
This is one of the better Christmas-gift books Fantagraphics ever made... A kind of Crumb-primer, or Crumb for people who might want to get at him from a more standard comics stories standpoint. --Tom Spurgeon
