While a cadre of women cartoonists and other feminists came to object to his sexually explicit work as degrading, as I will discuss in more detail, there is yet a sense that the honesty in Crumb’s work, however repulsive the content, was so striking as to have been electrifying. 42 A crucial context within which to understand the force and appeal of the underground is the backdrop of abstract expressionism, the dominant preoccupation of so much of the discourse around art in the 1960s. 43 Cartoonists were vigorously experimenting with the formal conventions of comics, but they were still trafficking in the repre- 16 i n t Ro duC t i on sentational, and the immediacy of comics was seen as a countercultural value, an effective way of reaching an audience.
