Robert Crumb & His Cheap Suit Serenaders
Here's Crumb describing the project during a Time Magazine interview in 2005:
"I was fooling around with Adam and Eve one day. Doodling about Adam and Eve. At first I did this satirical take off on Adam and Eve -- lots of jokey asides and Jewish slang because they're Jewish right? God is Jewish ... Finally I got over fooling around and I realized I just had to tell it straight."
CRUMB: Maybe I should be more correct.
CRUMB: It's not nice to draw those pictures of women with no heads and those jiggaboo images of black people and stuff. I didn't realize how hurtful it was when I did it. I was surprised when people didn't love me after that. I want everyone to love me. Please love me.
Robert has finished the Genesis project. It's 201 pages. He has also finished the Cover, the Introduction, the commentary (for the back sleeve) and also the Map, which will be in the beginning of the book. The book is soon going to production and it's planned to be released this fall.
