The Underground Quinn

Robert Crumb, renown artist of the underground comics, has his 65th birthday today. I used to read his stuff in the early 1970s at college, Mr. Natural and all that. So well regarded is he that the artists at MTV even did their own version of Quinn Morgendorffer as an "R. Crumb" character, with the characteristic tree-trunk legs.

On Holiday Island, today is the day for the solemn teen known as International Day of the Disappeared.

Today is also the birthday of the creator of the science-fiction genre of literature: Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, who wrote Frankenstein when she was only 19. Kids.

More soon. Happy long weekend!

Not only that, but it looks like she has Crumb's preferred body disorder, steatopygia.

And a big butt, too!
