I love funny comics but I love moving, emotional, poetical comics, too. Preferably a mixture of both.

Somewhere along the way, comics abandoned young readers. Great work was and is produced, of course, whether in Alan Moore's Cold War commentary (Watchmen), Art Spiegelman's disarming anthropomorphic Holocaust account (The Complete Maus: A Survivor's Tale (No 1)), Marjane Satrapi's haunting memoir (The Complete Persepolis), or Ryan North's post-post-modern philosophical gas (the best of Dinosaur Comics: 2003-2005 A.D.).

It would become the biggest selling gum in history, while all the while reminding its consumers that they are, indeed, better than all the rest of that slovenly hoi-polloi.

This is the most important novel of any kind of the year. It's like Kafka meets Dickens meets Jumpa Lahiri meets Saul Bellow. Read morePublished on August 1, 2010 by Anca Susan
