Robert Crumb's longstanding and eye-catching career in the graphic arts is celebrated as the bad boy cartoonist makes his only scheduled U.S. appearance at The New York Public Library. The creator of Fritz the Cat, Zap Comix, and Mr. Natural discusses how he went from underground, X-rated artist to cultural icon.
