More Description

Comic artist Ivan Brunetti, the creator of "Schizo," offers a best-of anthology of contemporary art comics, along with some classic comic strips and other historical materials that have retained a "modern" sensibility. As with Chris Ware's selections for his best-selling "McSweeney's" anthology, Brunetti's choices make for a highly personal book ("my criteria were simple: these are comics that I savor and often revisit") that serves as a broad historical overview of the medium and a round-up of some of today's best and most interesting North American comic artists. Included here are works from such well-known artists as Robert Crumb, Kim Deitch, Art Spiegelman, Chris Ware, Ben Katchor, Charles Burns, Gary Panter, Seth, Phoebe Gloeckner, Daniel Clowes, Lynda Barry, Joe Sacco, and Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez, as well as many other pioneers whose names may be less familiar.
Brunetti offers selections from the works of more than seventy-five avant-garde comic artists. His selections are arranged by genre and grouped thematically. Luxuriously produced and printed in four-color throughout, the book is a must-have for collectors, aficionados, readers of comics, and those generally interested in cutting-edge art and literature.
