The Best American Comics Criticism
ed. Ben Schwartz
-I was annoyed by this book.  The title claims far too much for what it is.  The choices are sometimes bewildering stunts, often mediocre, though of course many are fine.  It ends up seeming silly and like a half-assed editing job. If the title was supposed to be taken seriously, it's half-assed; if not, it should have had a humbler name.

- Just a bunch of quotes and passages.  Weird book, quick read.
