Olivier Schrauwen makes comics like no one else, so when he decides to do a piece of biographical comics about an adventure involving his grandfather, the only thing that you do know is that you don't know what to expect in the pages of this 250 page oversize hardcover volume printed primarily in blue and red inks.... Arsene Schrauwen embodies a complex synthesis of the most adventurous contemporary approaches to comics signifying and storytelling.

Yes, true believers all knew that this day would one day come, and now it has finally arrived: The Holy Grail of underground/alternative comics has been carefully collected in a single hardcover volume of high resolution scans.

Woodring has continued to visit this realm in a series of works, including this year's Congress of the Animals and last year's...
With it’s 34th issue (why 34th? go figure…) McDonough has taken his long-running, anything-goes, one-man comics anthology to new heights (and new widths) in this, the first magazine-sized issue of Grixly. In recognition of the distinction this issue bears from the previous 33, it has been assigned its own sub-title. Here, in the 32 8 1/2" x 11” black & white, monochrome and full color pages of Click Clack, we are provided with a veritable catalogue of comics and cartooning styles, story forms, genres, tropes, color schemas and more; from single image caricatures and grotesqueries in the...
