Every year since 2006, THE BEST AMERICAN COMICS selects and collects the best North American comics of the previous year in a beautiful, full-color, hardcover anthology that is seen widely in libraries and bookstores.
Many hundreds of comics are considered annually, and the final choices are made each year in a unique collaboration between the book’s regular Series Editor and a special Guest Editor who brings a new perspective to each edition. Past Guest Editors have included such comics luminaries as Chris Ware, Lynda Barry, Scott McCloud, Alison Bechdel, Neil Gaiman, and more.
This exhibit will spotlight selections from THE BEST AMERICAN COMICS 2016, featuring work by artists both well known and obscure, mirroring the diversity and discovery that each volume in the series represents. Artists with work in this exhibit will include Richard McGuire, Lynda Barry, Marc Bell, and more. This exhibit is curated by THE BEST AMERICAN COMICS Series Editor, Bill Kartalopoulos.
