Cartoon art drawn for reproduction doesn’t gain much from being hung on a wall. It’s fun to spot the occasional daub of correcting fluid or try to unravel the mysteries of R. Crumb’s preternatural draftsmanship, but Mr. Crumb and his wife, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, have such compelling confessional voices, whether working alone or in collaboration, that it’s almost impossible not to read the panels in sequence — just the way you would if they were printed.
