** {{Irony}}: And yet he makes comics that probably would have gotten him arrested back then.

Robert Dennis Crumb (born August 30, 1943)is a UndergroundComics creator best known for ''Zap Comix'', "Keep on Truckin'", ''ComicBook/FritzTheCat'', ''Mr. Natural'' and the album cover for Big Brother and the Holding Company's ''Music/CheapThrills (1968)''. He began his career working for Topps and the American Greetings corporation; there, he drew several of the earliest ''Fritz the Cat'' comics and the graphic novel ''Oggie and the Beanstalk''. He had some work published by Harvey Kurtzman in ''Help!'' magazine, but [[EverybodyMustGetStoned experiences with LSD]] led him to create some of his best-known comics, which he either published himself or submitted to other underground publications.

* LighterAndSofter: Crumb's work has been significantly less politically incorrect since his second marriage and especially since the birth of his daughter, featuring far more sympathetic depictions of women and virtually no tongue-in-cheek satires of racism. When he moved to France in the early 90s, many fans complained that Crumb was "too happy" to produce anything interesting any more.

* UsefulNotes/FurryFandom: Mostly enjoyed and drew only FunnyAnimal comics when he was younger; later in his career, he became less interested in this genre, and rarely draws anthropomorphic characters these days.

* ''Literature/TheBible'': Adapted and drew ''The Book of Genesis Illustrated''. Played straight throughout. Initially, Crumb planned to parody it but found the original text far more stranger, weirder and brilliantly written than he expected so he decided to ''illustrate'' it using the exact same words in the text, without alteration for narrative convenience.

* FollowTheLeader: Though not the first adult comic strip artist, nor even the first underground comics cartoonist, Crumb did become the most famous one in his field, inspiring countless graphic artists and cartoonists to draw whatever they damn well pleased. An entire industry of sex comics, politically subversive counterculture comics and autobiographical graphic novels can be directly attributed to them.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Outside of his parodies, LSD-inspired comics and FunnyAnimal work, Crumb is best known for autobiographical material drawn people and events in his real life. Crumb also drew some of the artwork for Creator/HarveyPekar's ''ComicBook/AmericanSplendor'', which is in the same vein, although not quite as grotesque as Crumb's often-disturbing depictions of his sexual history and fetishes.

* HeManWomanHater: Many of Crumb's comics were blatantly misogynistic, depicting abuse, assault and rape of women. His portrayals of women [[ItGetsBetter got better]] in the 1980s, however.

* NonstandardCharacterDesign/SharedUniverse: Aline Kominsky-Crumb would draw herself in ''Dirty Laundry'', while almost everything else was drawn by Robert. This led to an in-comic argument over her art skill. In a few ''Dirty Laundry'' stories, their daughter Sophie drew herself as well.
