review 1: good collection of some interesting comics from 2008! i'm not sure i would say the best of course, because i haven't read every comic in the world and this collection is generally excluding longer, graphic novel-like works -- though there were definitely a few insightful and funny standalone strips in here that i really enjoyed! the first things that come to mind right now are the picasso comic, and comics about the photographer in Iraq, the one with the man paddling the other across the river, and the matt groening comics about his adorable kids :) I do recommend!!
review 2: This is a beautifully bound edition that includes a diverse collection of comics from various sources around the country. The actual illustrations range from the simple, almost brutally dr
... moreawn comics, to many that are incredibly detailed. The message comes through no matter the form though. These artists demonstrate again and again the power of an art form that has traditionally been considered for laughs only. There is much more happening here. Politics, death, and many other themes are cleverly dealt with by simply condensing the message down to its most basically story telling elements. "Best of America Comics" is a diverse collection that challenges the way we see comics. less
