A Book With Only Six Complete Nipples
Yeah, I didn't believe Robert Crumb had a sweet side either.

To say this is Robert Crumb's "sweeter side" is a little loose of a statement; it's really like comparing cigarettes to crack, as one is only the lesser of two evils. That being said The Sweeter Side of R. Crumb is rather tame in comparison to his more sexually perverse, and bizarre work; successfully achieving the allowance of unaware spectators, to slowly ease into the mind of this ingenious artist. For all of you worrying conservatives out there, don't worry as I did a count, you only see six whole female nipples.

The Sweeter Side of R. Crumb brings you a deliciously mixed bag of similar work from this artist, however nonetheless astonishingly enjoyable content. This book consists mainly of miraculously well-drawn and often amusing portrayals of musicians, family members, old school colleagues; as well as other intriguing images that Robert comes across, throughout his day-to-day life

The Sweeter Side of R. Crumb is a must have for any true fans of comics, art, or the unique works of the artist himself. Although this isn't quite the best side of Robert Crumb, The Sweeter Side of R. Crumb is certainly a lavish artistic achievement.
