Sunday, February 05, 2017
In Pretending is Lying, Dominique Goblet takes a scruffy, postmodern approach to autobiography, with photographic images and wildly morphing character depictions that question our ideas of truth.
Thursday, January 26, 2017
Ta-Nehisi Coates continues his tangled, philosophical (and big-selling) superhero tale with Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet. Coates' storytelling resonates, but his character can often ramble.
Saturday, January 07, 2017
Caitlin Kittredge's comic series about psychic soldiers on the run from government experiments is brisk, colorful fun, complemented by Steve Sanders' stylish character designs and deft illustrations.

Fantagraphics is the publisher that brought literary respectability to comics. Their mammoth 40th anniversary volume, We Told You So, tends towards self-congratulation — but deservedly so.
Sunday, November 13, 2016
Ron Wimberly's energetic re-working of Romeo and Juliet focuses on Tybalt, the "Prince of Cats." It mashes up wildly diverse elements into a fresh creation, the visual equivalent of a DJ's mix.

Comic artist Steve Dillon died this weekend in New York City at the age of 54. He was responsible for some of the most iconic comics of the 1990s, including Hellblazer and Preacher.
Wednesday, October 12, 2016
Illustrator Shaun Tan puts his skills to a new test in The Singing Bones. He's taking the familiar Grimm fairy tales and condensing each one down to a single, wordless photo of one of his sculptures.
Tuesday, September 20, 2016
Cartoonist Riad Sattouf continues his scathing memoir of his childhood in Syria and Libya. Just as in the first volume, his disgust for the oddities and outrages around him is palpable on the page.
Sunday, September 11, 2016
Atwood may be best known as a novelist, but she's also a creator of comics — her new comic, Angel Catbird, is the gleefully subversive tale of a DNA-altered, superpowered cat-bird-man.
Tuesday, August 16, 2016
Drawn & Quarterly has reissued a compilation of strips from Lynda Barry's Ernie Pook's Comeek, starring irrepressible eight-year-old Marlys Mullen. Barry's sweeping lines are instantly recognizable.

Gaudy beauty and extravagant horror twine around each other in Marjorie Liu's new graphic novel Monstress. It's the story of a girl caught up in a war of magic in which neither side comes off well.
Saturday, July 30, 2016
Graphic artist, fortuneteller, musician and mischief maker Dame Darcy published the comic Meat Cake from 1993 to 2008. This new compilation is packed full of all the things that obsessed her.
Wednesday, July 27, 2016
Minicomics are kind of a relic — few artists now want to go to the trouble of printing and distributing paper comics. But there are still a few out there that are worth the trouble of hunting down.
Wednesday, July 06, 2016
Valiant Comics' plus-size superhero is starring in her first solo book — and while the story (and her costume) underwhelm, Faith herself is a glorious creation; smart, compassionate, geeky and fun.
Tuesday, June 21, 2016
If you're the kind of person who'd wear a hot dog costume to a princess party, you'll love Lisa Hanawalt's lushly illustrated, off-the-wall diary/food meditation/travelogue Hot Dog Taste Test.
Wednesday, May 04, 2016
High art is highly entertaining in this grown-up goof on the Where's Waldo? books. Readers hunt down a tiny Andy Warhol against a series of elaborately detailed art and culture-themed backgrounds.
Sunday, May 01, 2016
Skottie Young's comic may horrify (or delight) the parents of princess-obsessed kids. It's the story of a not-so-little girl who's gone a little violent after 27 years trapped in a sparkly fairyland.
Saturday, April 16, 2016
Chester Brown's new graphic novel is hard to categorize — a work of lay scholarship about prostitution in the Bible that's simultaneously ideosyncratic, meticulous, imaginative and heretical.
