Synopses & Reviews
The annual comics anthology of emerging cartoonists Drawn & Quarterly Showcase
is a new-talent anthology and the only annual
collection to have the focused visual acumen of the D+Q editor in chief, Chris Oliveros, who scours the globe for three cartoonists to spotlight and introduce to North American readers. More often than not, it is the first time the cartoonists have had the chance to work in full color with twenty-five pages, and on such a wide-reaching visual platform. The series is hailed for its consistent quality and for the superior editorial vision of its short stories, volume after volume. Book
Five features Anneli Furmark (Sweden), Amanda Vähämäki (Finland),
and T. Edward Bak (United States), with cover art by Vähämäki. Previous
Showcases have featured Kevin Huizenga, Jeffrey Brown,Geneviève
Castrée, Gabrielle Bell, and Nicolas Robel.
