Weirdo was Crumb's collaborative comic book series that ran from 1981-1990. Crumb contributed at least one story per issue. There was an average of about 3 issues per year. The very last issue was organized in France and released in 1993. Crumb edited each comic book until the 9th issue, when Peter Bagge (and later Aline) took over and edited the remaining issues. This book is a retrospective of the Weirdo comic book years, which Crumb specifies as "the definitive work on the subject."
