Aline Kominsky-Crumb (b. 1948) is an underground comix artist most famous for her autobiographical stories of growing up in Long Island, New York during the 1960s. In these stories she refers to herself as The Bunch, a nickname she was apparently given as a child.

She was born Aline Goldsmith to a middle class Jewish family (Noomin, 1991). The superficial nouveau riche culture that she grew up in and the constant bickering of her parents led her to turn towards drugs, the counterculture and Greenwich Village as a teenager.

Instead of going to therapy, she draws comic books about her life. She is married to the famous underground comic artist Robert Crumb.

She wrote "Dirty Laundry," a comic about the Crumb family life, with her husband and later with their daughter Sophie Crumb. Each of them drew his or her own characters for the comic.
