R. Crumb exhibit at the Institute of Contemporary Art

I went to see the R. Crumb exhibit at the ICA (admission is free) on my lunch break.

Verdict? Standing up and reading comics through a plate of glass is a pain. Buy some comix! Then you can flip through them at your leisure at home, a bottle of beer on the coffee table, with your feet up. And you don't have to worry about the security guards or other patrons wondering if you're staring at drawings of outrageously erect nipples or other ubiquitous lewd details.

However, the spoolmen (see SFGate review) were pretty cool.
