Artist Craig Yoe returns to underground comix after 50 years for a 'deeply personal look at art and life's lunacy'

The US underground comix movement of the 1970s was a wild and agile space where anything was possible, dominated by the style of Robert Crumb. At the same time Craig Yoe drew one 'comix', Sammy Saved and Al Most, with a cover coloured by Zap Comix’s surf artist Rick Griffin. Artist Craig Yoe is back with a new 'comix' style book, called WOMAN & MAN+, after 50 years away.

After success with Sammy Saved and Al Most, Craig went on to work as creative director for Jim Henson and the Muppets, Disney, Nickelodeon, and MTV. But now he's back with a new book 50 years in the making that reignites the style and freedom of the '70s underground comix scene. WOMAN & MAN+ is a ferociously surreal autobiographical comic that's being crowdfunded on Kickstarter.
