Recommended by Bill at Copacetic Comics, this anthology put out by Yale is a sampler platter of modern comics and graphic fiction. There were a couple of favorites of mine in here, as well as a few authors I’m going to watch for.

What I liked: The different pieces, from just a page or two to a dozen or more, flowed really well.
What I didn’t like: I thought I’d like the guys behind Love & Rockets more than I did — Catholic mysticism just creeps me out, I guess.
What I learned: A few books to check out.
Unresolved question: How did I not read any Crumb or Spiegelman before this?
