Discussion of "The Best American Comics" selection process
A few weeks too late, I found this post by John Dermot Woods (editor of Action Yes!, which hosted a preview of the anthology early last summer--as you can see in the links to the right). John is responding to a remark by Charles Burns, editor of "The Best American Comics 2009," on discovering new artists and the selection process. In the long comment thread that follows, the subject of abstract comics and their place in the range of contemporary comic art comes up quite a bit. It's an interesting discussion.
