Weirdo was a magazine-sized comics anthology created by Robert Crumb and published by Last Gasp from 1981 to 1993.
Weirdo served as a "low art" counterpoint to its contemporary rival RAW, Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly's highbrow alternative comics anthology. Early issues of Weirdo reflect Crumb's interests at the time – outsider art, fumetti, Church of the SubGenius-type anti-propaganda and assorted "weirdness." It also introduced artists such as Peter Bagge, Dori Seda and Dennis (Stickboy) Worden.
Crumb later handed over the editing reins to Bagge, and then to Crumb's wife, cartoonist Aline Kominsky-Crumb. The last issue, #28, titled Verre D'eau, was published in 1993.
