The Pen & The Plate presents Aline Kominsky-Crumb at Alison Eighteen Restaurant. Supporters and fans enjoyed American Underground Comics Artist Aline Kominsky Crumb's latest achievement a book co-written with her Husband Robert Crumb.
DRAWN TOGETHER includes all their full color New Yorker strips for the first time, in which the two irreverently report from the red carpet of such swank venues as the Cannes Film Festival and New York’s Fashion week. It has-been R. Crumb’s somewhat infamous relationship with women that has been the subject of so much controversy and fascination over the years, but in this new collection we get the full scope and tenor of his relationship with the woman in his life, written and drawn from a shared perspective R. Crumb, the author of numerous comic works, is one of thepioneers of underground comics.
Aline Crumb is an American underground comics artist and the author of Need More Love: A Graphic Memoir. They live in southern France.
Beginning in the 1970s, Aline and R. Crumb embarked on a working partnership that would test the resolve of most couples. Yet in strips like Dirty Laundry Comics and Self Loathing Comics the two brilliantly laid out in startling candor and wicked humor what it means to be the George and Gracie of the cartoon world.
From their early courtship to their subsequent marriage and the birth of their daughter, Sophie, the Crumbs never shied from laying it all out. In trademark shocking manner, they documented the daily humiliations alongside personal triumphs, the brushes with fame and, of course, and their legendary sexual hi-jinx. At each step Aline, a pioneering comics artist in her own right who played a large role in the women’s comics movement of the early 70s, proves herself to be every bit the match for R. Crumb.
Alison Eighteen Restaurant is not just about dinner. It’s about having a home away from home. In their downstairs space (becoming known as the rec room Alison never had growing up), in addition to just having a drink or a light bite, or continuing the tradition of their successful authors series in the Hamptons, they will continue to be host public events including a series of film showings, music evenings, authors & artists dinners and talks featuring special guests, creating our version of a Jazz Age salon.
