Recently, many people, struggling under the weight of an overburdened economy and worrying more and more about the future, have begun to wonder exactly how life looks and feels in a time of Depression. Charles Bukowski, in this article from Arcade, The Comics Revue #3 (Fall 1975), spins a tale from his youth spent during The Great Depression, visiting burlesque shows on Sundays with his buddies. Illustrations are by Robert Crumb. Contains some profanity and adult situations.
