* 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.

Became famous again in the 1990s as the subject of the critically-acclaimed biopic ''Crumb'', which is similar in many ways to ''ComicBook/AmericanSplendor'', the semi-autobiographical adaptation of the life of fellow underground cartoonist Harvey Pekar, which Crumb also contributed to. Crumb is a character in the movie adaptation of ''American Splendor'', played by James Urbaniak. Other artists heavily influenced by Crumb include [[ComicStrip/ZippyThePinhead Bill Griffith]], [[ComicBook/CartoonHistoryOfTheUniverse Larry Gonick]], and (early) [[ComicBook/{{Maus}} Art Spiegelman]].

Crumb's earliest comics could also be considered an early example of FurryFandom, being that he and his brother mostly enjoyed reading FunnyAnimal comics and drew these kinds of comics as children.

* 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.

* CreatorThumbprint: Among his non-sexual interests include classic cartoons and comics, blues and jazz music. He has an express dislike for modern-sounding music, recounting that he "fell asleep" at Music/TheGratefulDead and Music/JimiHendrix concerts, and thought that certain modern blues musicians would be more appealing to him if they played ''acoustic'' guitars, finding the sound of the electric guitar to be intolerable. Crumb also founded a retro-based band, the Cheap Suit Serenaders, which plays 1920s jazz, blues, country, Hawaiian and pop songs, although he hasn't played with them since the late 70s. (Another known member of the band, Terry Zwigoff, later directed the documentary ''Crumb'', and some mainstream films like ''Film/GhostWorld'', ''ComicBook/ArtSchoolConfidential'', and ''Film/BadSanta''.)

* AllWomenAreLustful: In Crumb's comics, anyway.
to:
* AllMenArePerverts and AllWomenAreLustful: In Crumb's comics, anyway.

* AllWomenAreLustful: In Crumb's comics, anyway.ComicBookAdaptation: Crumb has drawn comics about a variety of topics, including biopics of Creator/FranzKafka, blues singer Charlie Patton and the Book of Genesis.

* AllWomenAreLustful: In Crumb's DeliberatelyMonochrome: Most of his work is in black-and-white. * DudeShesLikeInAComa: A recurring theme in many of his ''funny'' comics, anyway.where the male often takes advantage of sleeping women to get his away. In most cases they don't even notice or care.

* AllWomenAreLustful: In Crumb's comics, anyway.FanService and FanDisservice: Readers may rejoice, because Crumb draws a lot of pornographic scenes. The bad news is: he does it mostly to please himself, so many scenes will feature huge women with heavy thighs and thick legs and/or furry cartoon characters. Some scenes are examples of RapeAsComedy, IncestIsRelative and even Necrophilia, all done more to shock his audience than anything else. It's a wonder whether anyone except himself ever got aroused reading this {{Squick}} stuff?

* Creator/FranzKafka: Crumb drew a graphic novel about him, combining comic book adaptations from scenes of his most famous novels and short stories, with analyses of Kafka's own life.
