Aline Kominsky-Crumb's LOVE THAT BUNCH>April 25
Drawn & Quarterly and TYPE Books invite you to the launch of Love That Bunch, autobiographical comics that chronicle the raw, dirty, and unfiltered thoughts of a woman coming of age in the 1960s by pioneering feminist cartoonist Aline Kominsky-Crumb. Kominsky-Crumb’s darkest secrets and deepest insecurities were all the more fodder for groundbreaking stories that crackle with the self-deprecating humor and honesty of a cartoonist confident in the story she wants to tell.
Kominsky-Crumb appears in conversation with writer and comedian Monica Heisey.

Since the 1990s, she has lived in the south of France with her husband Robert Crumb. In 2017, the David Zwirner Gallery in New York held a joint exhibition of their artwork: Aline Kominsky-Crumb & R. Crumb: Drawn Together.Monica Heisey is a writer and comedian from Toronto.
