Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

AdHouse Books follows up their smash anthology hits of Superior and Telstar with a book about love... and love stuff. A modern take on the classic genre! Contributors include: Nick Craine, Debbie Huey, Chip Kidd, Hope Larson, Junko Mizuno, Scott Morse, Joel Priddy, Paul Rivoche, Jim Rugg, Ash Wood and many more!

Review:

"The third in Adhouse's Project anthology series finds several dozen indie cartoonists taking on the idea of romance comics. Of course, modernity — and being indie — means that very few contributors offer boy-meets-girl/happily-ever-after scenarios, instead addressing the chaos and angst of love with tongue in cheek. In MK Reed's 'Mrs. Jeremy Dellorso,' for instance, a young woman tells her parents she's gotten engaged to a bear (who has terrible table manners). There's a wide range of styles and competencies on display here. Some pieces are design-based, like Brian Flynn's existential dialogue 'The World of Ghosts and Robots' and Rian Hughes's 'iGirl'; others are hand-scribbled, like Austin English's 'Valentine.' The prettiest artwork doesn't always go hand-in-hand with the most coherent stories, although Scott Morse's bold, kinetic wordless piece 'Over Yonder' leaps out as a visual tour de force. Other highlights include 'When I Was a Slut,' an evocative anecdote about gossip and instant-messaging by Hope Larson; Kaz Strzepek's tale of flesh-eating zombie love, 'Sewer Girls'; and Josh Cotter's one-page jokes about animals in love (tortoise to hare: 'I feel like maybe we're moving too fast'). (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
