Aline Kominsky-Crumb on 'Drawn Together', Women Cartoonists, And Autobiographical Comics | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

We recently had the opportunity to talk to Aline Kominsky Crumb, a seminal figure in American comics. Best known as the wife and collaborator of Robert Crumb, she played a key role in expanding the role of women in comics and in the development of autobiographical comics. In Part 1, we talk about Drawn Together, Norton’s recently released compilation of her work with Robert Crumb. In Part 2, we talked about her role in the early history of comics by women and autobiographical comics.

DCJCC showcases some wonder women of underground comics - Washington Post

DCJCC showcases some wonder women of underground comics - Washington Post | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

Underground comics, like so many of the 1960s counterculture’s anti-institutions, started as a boys club. But the field didn’t stay that way for long. The all-women “It Ain’t Me, Babe” was published in 1970, followed in 1972 by “Wimmen’s Comix,” which persevered for two decades. One of the central figures in this India-ink insurrection was Trina Robbins, whose work is included in “Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women,” at the Washington D.C. Jewish Community Center’s gallery. The retrospective doesn’t cover every aspect of women’s comics, but among the 18 participants are several of the early-’70s prime movers, including Diane Noomin, Sharon Rudahl and Aline Kominsky-Crumb (who married one of Robbins’s macho nemeses, R. Crumb).

Penis Rays, Self-Loathing and Psychic Voodoo: Autobiographical Cartoonists on Truth and Lies

Penis Rays, Self-Loathing and Psychic Voodoo: Autobiographical Cartoonists on Truth and Lies | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

I'm staring across the kitchen table at the cartoonist Alison Bechdel, filled with a vague sense of dread...Two questions in, Bechdel gets down to brass tacks. "If I'm reading something that is marketed to me as a memoir, it fucking well better be true," she says. "I'm getting increasingly moralistic about this. Tell the truth! Don't we all know what telling the truth is?"

 

I look down at my typed list of questions. They plainly indicate that I don't know what truth is. At all
