Charles Boucher and Patrick Rosenkranz on Robert Crumb, Carl Barks, and Basil Wolverton

My old friend Charlie Boucher (proprietor of Portland's great shop CounterMedia) and Patrick Rosenkranz discuss the influence of two Oregonian cartoonists, Carl Barks and Basil Wolverton, on Robert Crumb.

(Hat tip to Fantagraphics.)


  1. Hey i used to love counter media charles gave me his card with his email on it the day they closed so i could come buy from him still! but i haven't been able to find it anywhere do you have an email address or way to contact him? thanks alot!

    1. Charles is out of the business for medical reasons, I'm afraid.

    2. I never saw this sorry for such a late response! Thanks for letting me know and I hope that he is doing better. Do you know of anyway to send him an email just to thank him for counter media it was a really special place and it probably influenced more of my life long interests and paths of knowing than anything growing up. hope all is well thanks again for the response
