Time: A Trees And Hills Anthology

Time: A Trees And Hills Anthology

Product Review (submitted on August 12, 2012):
Trees and Hills is a comics collective based in Western MA, Vermont, and New Hampshire that brings together creators to share resources, make comics, and build connections. (Full disclosure: I’m part of this group and did the cover for the new anthology). TIME is our eighth anthology- each one organized around a theme and includes a fun little extra (TIME includes a teeny 2011 calendar as a bonus). Not one comic in here is about being late for a deadline! But we do have space ninjas battling zombies through time, camp math (how time seems to slow down @ summer camp), time travel, great moments in time, how to prioritize time over money, and other related adventures in and with time.

What I like about this anthology (even if I weren’t in it) is the wide range of different artists and styles that give a different kind of feel. It’s fun that it’s striking and feels looser than other anthologies in the T&H series; I think that might have to do with the abstract feeling of the theme—what kinds of things does “time” make you think about?
