Belly Button Comix
Fantagraphics is pleased to present the debut issue of Belly Button Comix by young Sophie Crumb (yes, the daughter of Robert and Aline). Thrill to these vivacious autobiographical stories of a woman living her early 20s in Paris, with stories of young love, cell phones, and sexual frustration. Plus "Saturday Night Sally," "Zozo and Zaza," "Eddy Bear Doesn't Care," reminiscent of some of Robert's earliest comics, and other surprises, each drawn in a variety of styles, with a handsome purple two-tone effect throughout as well. Is there any doubt that this is the debut of the year? Quit yer navel-gazin' — check out our Bellybutton! Co-published with Oog & Blik of Holland.
"Belly Button Comix is full of juicy autobiographical tales depicting both self-love and self-loathing. Creator Sophie may have picked up more than drafting skills from her parents, cartoonists Robert Crumb and Aline Kominsky." – Utne
"It's charming, funny, neurotic, insightful and beautifully drawn." – Jane
