Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

The Best American Comics 2009

The Best American Comics 2009 - Charles Burns, Matt Madden, Jessica Abel I love the eclectic mixes of these anthologies. I also love how they always reflect the editor's style and taste. I'm not the biggest fan of Charles Burns's comics, because he runs a bit too dark for me and this anthology reflects that darkness (but not as much as you would expect!). I discovered some new (to me) artists, which was really a treat. I also really loved Charles Burns's introduction, especially his ode to Tintin comics! My favorite artists/pieces in this anthology are: the collaborative comic by Robert Crumb & Aline Kominsky-Crumb and the pieces by Dan Zettwoch, Mimi Pond, Gabrielle Bell, CF], [a:Tony Millionaire, Ted Stearn, and [a:Jillian Mariko Tamaki].
