The Life and Death of Fritz the Cat

"I can express something [with animals] that is different from what I put into my work about humans... I can put more nonsense, more satire and fantasy into the animals..." — R. Crumb

Fantagraphics Books reprints the best, from beginning to end, of Robert Crumb's iconic Fritz the Cat comics. Collected here is a sampling from the life of the famous funny animal, the American everyguy, metropolitan college student Fritz whose wise words of 1960's rebellion win him attention from ladies of all species. It's hard not to be charmed by Fritz.   

Where the book begins, early Fritz: this strip was created in 1964 and first published in 1969.
Fritz meets his end at the hands of an ex-girlfriend in the 1972 strip Fritz the Cat "Superstar".
