The Annual Celebration of the Hippest & Best in the Popular Cartoon Arts.

Now in its 13th year, this multiple award winning series returns in another deluxe full-color coffee-table edition. D+Q presents a mix of cartooning, illustration and art and graphic deisgn. Another wry, sophisticated story from New Yorker favorites Dupuy & Berberian join a spectacular retrospective of the work of French-Canadian Albert Chartier. Chartier brought a European style to his witty strips about life in mid-century Quebec and one can trace his legacy in the new story from D+Q fave Michel Rabagliati. Wuthering Heights gets the classic EC horror comic treatment from postmodern trickster R. Sikoryak, and Harry Mayerovitch turns his funny, classy pen to the subject of death and dying. Features an introduction from writer, scholar and critic Alberto Manguel, best-selling author of A History of Reading and Reading Pictures: A History of Love and Hate .

Booklist Review

In its flagship title, an elegantly designed coffee-table anthology, Canadian graphic-novel publisher Drawn & Quarterly spotlights an impressive array of international talent, most, if not all, of whom are probably unfamiliar to even the most well-versed American comics fans. Drawing heavily on the Francophone world, this edition features the Parisian team of Dupuy and Berberian, whose signature character, Monsieur Jean, confronts the travails of urban life in a universally recognizable manner; Quebec-based Michel Rabagliati's nostalgic account of adolescents on the loose in Montreal in the 1970s; and a 75-page retrospective of the work of Quebecois cartoonist Albert Chartier. Other contributors include Japanese master Yoshihiro Tatsumi, Israeli newcomer Rutu Modan, and the token American, R. Sikoryak, whose "The Crypt of Bronte" retells Wuthering Heights 0 in the style of 1950s EC horror comics. Casting the net so widely pays off handsomely; unlike in most comics anthologies, there isn't a dud in the bunch here. And the exquisite volume shows once again that Drawn & Quarterly best understands the importance of top-level production and design. --Gordon Flagg Copyright 2004 Booklist
