edited by Ivan Brunetti It's too early to say for certain, but this follow-up to Brunetti's already classic 2006 anthology, also published by Yale University Press, might just be even better than its precursor. One thing's for certain: Brunetti has held onto -- and further refined -- his editorial vision of arranging the work contained in this volume in an organic sequence, deftly managing to map out the similarities between artists so that each piece flows smoothly into into the other, creating an amazing sense of an innate connectivity between all areas of comics here on display. This book is a powerful ally in the struggle to bring the light of comics to those poor souls still dwelling in the darkness. It's the perfect choice to turn on a friend or relative to the joy, beauty and pleasures of our favorite medium.

After three decades in the wilderness of underground comics, Diane Noomin's signature creation, Didi Glitz, get's the deluxe, full-size trade edition treatment. In black and white and full color as required, Glitz-2-Go has it all, from Didi's beat beginnings to her (off-off-off, as in San Francisco) broadway bonanza. Also included are costumed fumetti romps with Diane dressed up as Didi, papier maché dolls, Christmas cards, etchings and more! A career-spanning compendium of the signiture work of an underground comics legend. Together with Aline Kominsky, Noomin created and edited the pioneering women's underground comics anthology, Twisted Sisters (and, yes, this comic book came before the metal band) that helped establish a collective voice for women in comics in the 1970s and 80s. And, as it happens, as Kominsky married R. Crumb, Noomin married Bill Griffith, and both couples have lived happily ever after; A True Comics Fairytale!

Loss is universal and everyone dies, but knowing that doesn't make it any easier. In the last year or so, three of the giants of underground comics passed on: Justin Green, Aline Kominsky-Crumb and Diane Noomin, who is the subject of this heartfelt, introspective comic book by her partner of just shy of fifty years, Bill Griffith. It well conveys the sense of disorientation and melancholy experienced following the loss of one's closest companion.
