Graphic Novel Friday The Best American Comics 2010 Neil Gaiman

Out of the three posts today on the graphic novels this is the one that I would consider more “grownup”. Looking for diversity in your content? Want to see a variety of writing styles? Looking to see as many different art forms in graphic novels as possible in one place? Then this is your graphic novel for all the right reasons. Here is what we have:
“The Best American Comics showcases the work of both established and up-and-coming contributors. Editor Neil Gaiman—one of the top writers in modern comics and the award-winning author of novels and children’s books—has culled the best stories from graphic novels, pamphlet comics, newspapers, magazines, mini-comics, and the Internet to create this cutting-edge collection. With entries from luminaries such as Tim Hensley, Michael Kupperman, and Dash Shaw.”
Where else are you going to get to experience 25 different stories? The emotions of the stories run the gamut: sad, happy, giddy, the whole nine yards. I have to give this compilation props for having as many different themes as it does artists and authors. It is an amazing gathering of talent on all sides of the different projects. Did I really enjoy each and every story? No, but I got to experience something different from what I was used to and learned much in the journey.
Neil Gaiman has put together a graphic novel collection that you can not only read through once, but need to go through again and again there is so much there in content and artwork. It is easy to miss something the first time around and still have a fresh look at on another read through.
