A page from R. Crumb’s Head Comix, by Robert Crumb, published by Fireside Press in 1988. Aside from the cover, the entire book is in black and white, however here (and on another page) the previous owner decided to treat this like a coloring book. Not a bad idea!

One of my favorite things I picked up at the recent Chicago ‘Zine Fest was this new publication given to me by talented pal Max Morris. The cover is wonderfully silkscreened with metallic ink. When I asked Max if the title Man in the Trees was inspired by the song by the great band Die Kreuzen, he gave the answer I was hoping for: Yes!
