Staff Review: Do you want to read comics by the greatest cartoonists? Do you want to read examples of their best work? Maybe get a sense of who's who, who does what, and see what all the fuss is about? Ivan Brunetti creates the most comprehensive and exemplary comic anthology to date. Every established name in the alternative comics world is represented here (R. Crumb, Dan Clowes, Chris Ware, Charles Burns, Julie Doucet, Chester Brown, Jessica Abel, Adrian Tomine, Art Spiegelman), some of the new generation of young cartoonists (Gabrielle Bell, Jonathan Bennett, Jeffrey Brown, James Kochalka, David Heatley, John Porcellino), those who are pushing comics more into the art realm (Marc Bell, Mat Brinkman, Gary Panter) and even a few who influenced all of the above (Charles M. Schulz, George Herriman, Frank King, Henry Darger, Harvey Kurtzman). This anthology is a college course in graphic fiction, a college course in which you joyously do all of the reading and attend every class. Brunetti's Anthology Of Graphic Fiction goes a long way in establishing a canon for comics. -Benn Ray, Atomic Books Blog
