Ivan Brunetti returns with a new selection of 20th and 21st-century comic creations by some of the most original artists in the medium Comic art is a vital, highly personal art form in which change--rapid and unpredictable--is the norm. In this exciting new anthology, comic artist Ivan Brunetti focuses on very recent works by contemporary artists engaged in this world of change. These outstanding cartoonists, selected by Brunetti for their graphic sophistication and literary style, are both expanding and transforming the vocabulary of their genre. The book presents contemporary art comics produced by 75 artists, along with some classic comic strips and other related fine art and historical materials. Brunetti arranges the book to reflect the creative process itself, connecting stories and art to each other in surprising ways: nonlinear, elliptical, sometimes whimsical, even poetic. He emphasizes continuity from piece to piece, weaving themes and motifs throughout the volume. As gorgeously produced as Brunetti's previous anthology of graphic fiction, this book does full justice to the creative work of Art Spiegelman, Chris Ware, Charles Burns, Gary Panter, and the other prominent or emerging comic artists who are currently at work at the cutting edge of their medium.… (more)

An eclectic collection of American comics artists' work. Some I really enjoyed: Mack White, 'The Nudist Nuns of Goat Island'; R. Sikoryak, 'Action Camus'; Richard McGuire, 'The Thinkers'; Jeffrey Brown, excerpt from 'Unlkely'; Chester Brown, 'My Mom was a Schizophrenic' [this one wasn't such a good comic but I was interested in its subject]; Chris Ware, excerpt from 'Building Stories'. Others I'd seen before (Daniel Clowes, Art Spiegelman, Adrian Tomine, Joe Sacco). And quite a few I didn't really read or get into because they were illegible or poorly drawn or lettered or just a style I didn't like. ( )

I enjoy graphic fiction and thought this would be a great way to read several different writers. The print is so small that the book is almost impossible to read. ( )
