    Famous Cartoonist Button 13 (white background)

    Robert Crumb. The most famous underground cartoonist has evolved into an international art figure. Crumb's Zap triggered the underground comix explosion in 1967. Mr. Natural, Home Grown, Snoid, Weirdo, Hup, and Devil Girl followed. Terry Zwigoff's documentary film, Crumb, made most critics' top ten lists in 1995 and cemented the artist's fame. The definitive R. Crumb Coffee Table Art Book followed in 1997. This 1975 self-portrait button has a white background. An otherwise-identical alternative version with a green background (created as part of the series in 1975) is also available. A number of other Crumb buttons are available from Steve Krupp's Curio Shoppe.


    About the Buttons:

    Pinback Jack issued this "Famous Cartoonist Series" of self-portrait buttons back in 1975. All of the participating cartoonists were alive and created self-portraits specifically for this button set. With very few exceptions, the images have not appeared elsewhere in print. The buttons were distributed by Krupp Comic Works and Phil Seuling. This set was originally announced as 52 buttons, and the alphabetical numbering reflects that. However, two artists (Neal Adams and Rick Meyerowitz) turned in their self-portraits late, after the first 52 had already been designed. They were included in the set, but numbered 53 and 54 respectively, out of alphabetical sequence. Steve Krupp's Curio Shoppe is now the exclusive source of the remaining limited inventory.

    All the color buttons in this set are metal with clear celluloid covers, are 2.25 inches in diameter, and have "safety" pinbacks. This button is listed for sale as an individual, but we do offer the complete set as well.
