  • Anthology Of Graphic Fiction Vol. 2


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. Featuring work by: - Ivan Brunetti - Sammy Harkham - Chris Ware - Kaz - Kim Deitch - Art Spiegelman - Basil Wolverton - Bill Griffith - Gary Panter - Laura Park - Vanessa Davis - Joe Matt - C.F. - Jim Woodring - Charles Burns - John Porcellino - Lynda Barry - Robert Crumb - Seth - Daniel Clowes - Adrian Tomine ... and many more!
