MAXON CRUMB

Maxon will be familiar to many readers from his appearance in Terry Zwigoff’s 1994 award-winning film, Crumb. (If you have not seen this amazingly frank and honest documentary, go rent the video immediately.) While brother Robert’s work may be more well-known, Maxon is equally talented as both a writer and artist. His gritty fantasy story, “Stigmata,” appears in Crumb Family Comics (1998, Last Gasp, 1998). He illustrated Maxon’s Poe (1997, Cottage Classics), and in 2001 created an illustrated novel called Hardcore Mother (CityZen Books).
