I always enjoy the Best American Comics series, but 2009 was a bit of a disappointment. I suppose I'm just not of the same mindset as Charles Burns, the series editor. He seems to go for more dark, male-oriented, "dumb" jokes type of comics. There are some good choices that I enjoyed, such as Skim by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki, Freaks by Laura Park, and the comics by Dash Shaw and Ben Katchor. The rest, however, seemed fairly mundane and didn't grab me on an intellectual level. But, I think the point of the series is to highlight a variety of comics. You will gravitate towards some and quickly forget others. I wish I liked a few more in this series, but it was a fun read nonetheless. ( )
