A friend of mine ran into Robert Crumb in the mid-60's in Cleveland at a party. He mentioned how he stuck out even then. He dressed like an old man with an old man hat. Not at ALL like those around him. This is how I see Buk in H.S.
That pic is from The Outsider #1, but I bet Bukowski sent the Webbs an old pic for the contributors' page. I didn't bother to take a look at the photo credit -if any- when I was in in Buffalo and I don't have a copy of this issue, but a few users here might actually have it.
"I'm the night custodian. Get your ass out of here before I call the cops!"
"What for? This is the Senior Prom and I'm a senior."
"Bullshit!" he said. "You're at least 22 years old!"
