Columbia University’s Curator For Comics and Cartoons, Karen Green, announced at the San Diego Comic Com that Robert Crumb, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, and Peter Bagge will be appearing this Fall at Columbia University…no further info at the moment. Here’s the article from The Beat, July 20, 2019, “Things Go Off The Rails At The Book Of Weirdo Panel”
Both Mr. Crumb and Ms. Kominsky-Crumb have contributed to The New Yorker. In 1994, with the magazine was then edited by Tina Brown, Mr. Crumb’s “Elvis Tilley” broke the sixty-eight year string of Rea Irvin Eustace Tilleys appearing on the anniversary issue.
