I knew him in the early 1970s when I was business manager of Glide Memorial Church. Glide had published some of Crumb’s work and he regularly came by to chat.
One day a young woman came to my office and showed me her cartoon work (I liked it). She was new in town and wondered how to get published. Her name was Aline Kominsky.
What was stunning about this young woman were her legs. They were large. She immediately reminded me of the women in Crumb’s cartoons.
I suggested that the person who would best be able to help her was R. Crumb himself. I arranged for them to meet.
They were married shortly thereafter and are still married.
