Reviews

"Series editor Kartalopoulos taps Tamaki (They Say Blue, 2018, etc.) to help curate the 2019 edition of this annual collection of exceptional graphic storytelling...Eleanor Davis' incisive 'Hurt or Fuck' contemplates art and human need on an allegorical, visceral level in what could almost be a two-actor stage play. Erik Nebel's 'Why Don't We Come Together' ingeniously explores the possibilities of a rigid format--repeating but shifting shapes and colors, figures and patterns play across a set of equal-sized panels stacked into a grid, clicking through simple, whimsical stories like a filmstrip of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis...It's called 'best' for a reason."--Kirkus
