The Movement Toward a New America



I acquired this massive, out-of-print collection, put together by Mitchell Goodman, not so long ago. Noteworthy, among other reasons, for having used some panels from R. Crumb comix, seemingly without having asked.

  1. I've never met a Member Of The Great Conspiracy, sounds intriguing.

  2. I have some R. Crumb illustrations put aside to post at some time in my blog. A great favourite from the past.

  3. Rob, I think the Great Conspiracy was some kind of hippie talk. Ray, Crumb was an early interest of mine, and I still like him. A friend of mine received a couple postcards from Crumb in the early 1980s. At that time, Crumb was still living in California and apparently more accessible. Crumb also put an item about the Oddities zine (issues of which I've posted earlier in this blog) in an article about the Newave movement in his Weirdo magazine.
