Fables: A Fairy Tale Showdown". Wizard World. The Hollywood Reporter. December 8, Retrieved August 27, To read it is to feel exposed to the blast furnace of Bechdel's intelligence and talent, the full heat of which is applied to her attempt to understand how her family made her the woman and artist she is today. One of the most influential superhero comics ever made, and unique among that number in being directed squarely and unashamedly at a readership of girls, Naoko Takeuchi's multi-volume Sailor Moon saga belongs with Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, and the X-Men in any conversation about the medium's exploration of power and responsibility.
Cartoonist Naoko Takeuchi's genius is equal parts literary and visual. In the form of the various Sailor Guardians -- with the core five of vivacious Sailor Venus, powerful but lovelorn Sailor Jupiter, no-nonsense Sailor Mars, bookish and brilliant Sailor Mercury, and emotional yet self-sacrificing Sailor Moon herself -- she nailed a slew of templates for how girls exist in a patriarchal world; it's the kids comics equivalent of The Golden Girls or Sex and the City. But the imagery of her "magical girl" comic may well possess even more power. When middle-school student Usagi Tsukino and her friends transform into their superheroic alter egos, those transformations are half-psychedelic, half-Cirque du Soleil reveries that stop the action dead in its tracks, the better to appreciate the impact of what the girls are going through.
Peter Parker, eat your heart out. Before he made Louis Riel , the Canadian cartoonist had never made anything remotely like Louis Riel. He established himself as a talent to watch with Ed the Happy Clown , a surrealist satire of the Reagan era featuring the Great Communicator himself as a talking penis, then wrote and drew a series of autobiographical efforts chronicling his youthful sexual and romantic peccadilloes the best of which, I Never Liked You , is a devastating story of young love and rejection.
Mystery of the Map
Louis Riel , a biography of Canada's most prominent indigenous political leader and revolutionary, was revelatory, and not just because of the respectful way in which it depicted Riel's alleged revelations from God himself. Brown's restrained, matter-of-fact character designs and pacing were perfect for the story of a man who seemed to be swept along by events as much as provoking them himself, yet it was equally adept at depicting him as a man of destiny who would bow to nothing and no one. What would you get if you combined the most pulse-pounding, propulsive action sequences superhero comics have ever produced with the brainiac esoteric compositions of an Aphex Twin or Oneohtrix Point Never?
You'd get something like Garden , the magnum opus of Japanese cartoonist Yuichi Yokoyama. In its pages, a group of nameless characters costumed like obscure bosses in a knockoff Mega Man video game travel through a massive man-made outdoor complex, emotionlessly commenting on all the amazing and completely ordinary objects and events they observe.
The result is a reading experience in which you truly feel as though you are there , exploring these strange, geometrically rigorous environments right along with these flat-affect adventurers. If you could somehow transubstantiate Kraftwerk's Trans-Europe Express or side two of David Bowie's Low into comics form, this is what you'd get -- a thrill that's both intellectual and visceral.
The feminist fantasy of Ursula K. Le Guin and the antiwar allegory of George R. Martin receive their sequential-art answer in this overlooked masterpiece by Megan Kelso. The titular "artichokes" are people, for all intents and purposes, the only difference being that their hair looks like the pointed leaves of the vegetable.
From this simple visual conceit, Kelso creates an act of world-building to rival any in the medium's history. Artichoke Tales is the story of a kingdom divided between its agricultural south and industrial north, a queen who fails her people despite an entire system dedicated to her success, and a house-divided family saga in which sex, love, and attraction play as important a role as war, politics, and gender roles.
This book will explode like a bomb in the mind of anyone lucky enough to read it. Today, comics journalism is a burgeoning field, with cartoonists serving as reporters on the front lines of social protest and political crisis. But it's Sacco's return to Palestine, Footnotes in Gaza , that's his true tour de force. An attempt to access the truth of a massacre in a Palestinian village during its initial seizure by Israeli forces, Footnotes is essentially three books at once: a furious skewering of the Egyptian and Israeli powers-that-be that allowed the atrocity to take place; a Rashomon -style examination of the memories of the incident's survivors; and a cri de coeur from a reporter who can only record and never alter the horrific events that are the subject of his work.
In many ways, this early career-spanning collection of the comics and illustrations of cartoonist Phoebe Gloeckner is a dry run for the masterpiece to follow. More on that later. Gloeckner has one of the most refined and inviting lines in comics, but she's constantly switching up styles in these pages -- an artistic evolution that has culminated in her current, ongoing project investigating the murders of women and girls in Juarez, Mexico, using dolls and dioramas.
The twin highlights here -- "Minnie's 3rd Love," a history of her emotionally abusive teen girlfriend, and her illustrations for J.
Ballard's landmark experimental novel The Atrocity Exhibition shout-out to Danny Brown -- are for-the-ages works. Never, ever pay any attention to anyone who tells you that comics are a young person's game; the mere existence of Joyce Farmer's Special Exits should put paid to that notion for good and all.
It was one of the best comics of that or any other year -- a no-holds-barred look at aging and dying from a cartoonist who applied a lifetime of chops to the project. Farmer famously threw away 35 pages of finished work because they didn't live up to her exacting standards, and the result is a book that portrays the love of a daughter for her mother and father as movingly as anything in any medium.
In one format or another -- alternative-weekly newspaper strips, graphic-novel collections from a variety of publishers -- Ben Katchor has told the stories of Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer for decades. Cheap Novelties , recently reissued by titanic alt-comix publisher Drawn and Quarterly, is the first of Katchor's collections, and it establishes Knipl's routine to a nicety.
The off-kilter angles that really make you feel like you're navigating forgotten Midtown office buildings and Downtown storefronts; the harried, suit-wearing, middle-aged ethnic-European men who carry a half-century of neglected urban life with them -- Katchor has created some of the greatest art ever made about New York City and its accretion of culture.
As one memorable strip puts it, "Mr.
Knipl accidentally stuck his head into the past. Wonderful and Wilson , Daniel Clowes has established himself as a titan of the form in a variety of tones and styles, linked by his often-imitated, never-duplicated figure work and design.
