Description
"In front of you awaits wit, style, danger, curiosity, philosophy, metaphysical visions, love, angst, sex, betrayal, and cutting-edge ocular techniques," promises Jeff Smith in his introduction, "all folded into this thing—this experience—we call comics." The creator of the multiple Eisner- and Harvey Award–winning series Bone, Smith presents 30 short pieces and excerpts by independent artists and writers like Alison Bechdel, James Kochalka, Terry Moore, Vanessa Davis, Jennifer Hayden, and Tony Puryear.

"At its best, a gorgeous, glorious inferno of imagination."—Kirkus Reviews. Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For this title, as for each of the others, a series editor reviews hundreds of periodicals, then selects between 50 and 100 outstanding works. The guest editor—a recognized expert in the field—then pares the list down to the 20 or so very best pieces.

"We're living in a new golden age of comics ... and there isn't a better example of this than the Best American Comics series.... Fans of the genre will find a surprise or two, but this is the ideal book to hand to a comics neophyte with mature tastes who is ready to be astounded."—Booklist

"The current narrative strength of the comics medium gets a solid showcase in this year's volume, which should inspire much further reading."—Publishers Weekly

"At its best, a gorgeous, glorious inferno of imagination."—Kirkus Reviews
