This is worst one of these so far ( )
  Baku-X | Jan 10, 2017 |
Yeah, these books are always a lot of fun. This one had a few misses, but also a few great comics which I really enjoyed: "The Strange Boy" (about Jeffrey Dahmer), the goofball "Scary Bathtub Stories," the sort of warmly morbid "Cody," a meditation on marriage called "Love Me Forever! Oh! Oh! Oh!," and the depiction of the second lunar landing in "1969."

But a special mention to Joseph Lambert's "Discipline" about Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller. His depiction of the sensory world as experienced by a young Helen Keller is brilliant in the way it uses the medium of the comic. A bit difficult to describe, but if you check out the comic you'll immediately get what I'm saying.

Anyway, there's a lot of other good stuff in this compilation, as well. If you're into comics-as-literature (I never exactly know how to refer to this genre...), I suspect it's already on your radar. ( )
