I approached this volume with trepidation after last year's disastrous entry, but I'm pleased to see some selections in here from books I might actually consider putting on a best-of list myself, especially Guy Delisle's Hostage or Sarah Glidden's Rolling Blackouts: Dispatches from Turkey, Syria, and Iraq. (It wasn't good for me, but the critically-acclaimed My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, Vol. 1 is also included.)

There is still too much fixation on being an alternative comix sampler or indie publisher showcase for my taste, but I can forgive that if I at least discover something interesting of which I was not previously aware. The excerpted gem from this volume for which I'll be seeking out the full work: Playground of My Mind by Julia Jacquette. ( )
