Inhaltsangabe zu „The Best American Comics 2006“ von Anne Elizabeth Moore

The idea of Houghton Mifflin's distinguished Best American series turning to the comics would once have seemed unlikely, but the powerful narratives in this collection prove why it's a good idea. Editors Pekar (American Splendor) and Moore (Punk Planet magazine) concentrate on the graphic equivalents of literary fiction and essays, and the best results are haunting. The contents range from the fantastic (Rebecca Dart's "Rabbithead," which channels Topo Gigio and Clint Eastwood) through fiction (an excerpt from Alex Robinson's graphic novel Tricked) to serious nonfiction (Joe Sacco's account of a Marine unit in Haditha). The longer chunks of story tend to be the most effective, like Justin Hall's "La Rubia Loca," an engrossing story about a bunch of hippie slackers stuck on a bus tour through Mexico with a crazy woman. Although there are strong offerings from established comics greats like Crumb, Jaime Hernandez and Lynda Barry, the editors also showcase newcomers like Jesse Reklaw (his touching "13 Cats" is the story of a fractured childhood told through the author's attachment to a series of doomed kittens. A few of the shorter pieces are almost amateurish by comparison, but in general this volume shows the Best American Comics concept to be a showcase for thought-provoking and evocative work

The Case Study Of Vanitas 1

Mein erstes Manga und ich muss gestehen so schlecht war es garnicht. Das einzige was ungewohnt war, ist das man Mangas von hinten liest.


Der nasse Fisch

Sehr gelungen!


Mächtig senil

Grenzenlose, nervtötende Naivität inmitten tiefster Korruptheit! Sehr einseitig und klischeehaft...


Sherlock 1

Sherlock Holmes als Manga. Als Vorlage dient die TV-Serie Sherlock. Ein Muss für alle Sherlock-Fans


Paper Girls 1

Cross-Kult! We all living in America!


Nick Cave

Irgendwo zwischen Biographie und musikalischer (Alb?)Traumreise. Für den Cave-Fan ein Muss.
