Graphic Novel Reporter write-up

I had missed this one--we're on the Graphic Novel Reporter's "hottest graphic novels for Summer 2009" list (nonfiction division):

Their brief write-up is pretty nice, too, and super blurb-worthy:

The first thing you'll notice is the awesome
cover by Jacob Covey. Then you'll wonder if
this is an art book, a book about comics, or
something else. It's something else.

Abstract Comics breaks the art of comics
storytelling down to its most basic unit, the
panel, and from there creates a visual
experience unlike any other. Pioneers of
the form are joined by some of the greats
from decades past and the present for a
magical, wonderful trip. Found art, drawn
art, whatever it happens to be,
Comics sheds new light on the prospect of
sequential art.

  1. Wow, your blog is fascinating. I wish I had known about it before. Thanks for ordering a copy of The First Transmission. I can't wait to hear what you think.
