Crumb, famous Underground Comic artist, comments on his brother
Maxon's new book:
"One of the strangest, quirkiest pieces of literature I've ever
"It is bizarre in the extreme … well written, interesting, entertaining
even … a bit harrowing … where do such ideas come from?
"[HardCore Mother] is on the outer edge of utter strangeness, perversity,
and inverted human imagination … not digestible for the general
public, certainly … only for a very small elite of aficionados of
such stuff …
"Beautiful work … [Maxon]'s in his creative prime."
H. Price, Cremo
The author not only knows where he's coming from, but he has a courageous
sense of direction as well."
Maxon Crumb's Introduction of HardCore Mother:
"When you know the full story of what life is, when you
dive into the inner works, wow! -- Perverse is the core of living
things on levels of being, intense and real, where our usual human
values - Catholic, Christian, Techno-crassism, Psychology - are
decoration, only. Then in the core of the core of the gut, is the
illusive seed, and there again sense establishes its real rule,
the talkin' dirty finally yields to the cosmic engineers. This story
tells the story of that. See if you're clever enough to find it
in the maze of the juicy crimes contained therein."
