Classic Crumb comics from one of the strongest phases of his career! Hup #1 is filled to the brim with usual suspects the Rough-Tuff Cream-Puffs, Mister Natural, Flakey Foont, and Devil Girl engaging in typical Crumb hilarity. Raising the bar higher for standards of comics-complexity is one of his all-time greatest hits: “My Troubles With Women, Part Two.” This long strip is one of Crumb’s tour de forces —one of the greatest comics ever created addressing human sexuality.
Stories this issue:
- “The Ruff-Tuff Cream-Puffs Take Charge!” The Ruff-Tuff Cream-Puffs, who are sick of liberal wimps, take over the U.S.A.
- “Uh Oh! He’s Back! Who’s Back? You’ll Find Out!” Mr. Natural literally flies in to meet Flakey Foont for the first time in a decade.
- “My Troubles With Women – Part II” Crumb goes more in-depth into his psyche with this follow-up story, this time attempting to bring out the root causes of his deviant behavior.
- “Here He Comes Again!” Mr. Natural visits Flakey again and introduces him to Devil Girl.
