The lat­est edi­tion of this yearly col­lec­tion is a highly pol­ished mir­ror of “guest ed­i­tor” Scott McCloud’s ap­proach to the medium. The ac­claimed car­toon­ist and au­thor of the in­flu­en­tial 1990s trea­tise Un­der­stand­ing Comics brings to­gether 35 short pieces and ex­cerpts, ar­ranged into the­matic sec­tions and pref­aced by McCloud’s il­lu­mi­nat­ing in­tro­duc­tions.

Culled from graphic nov­els, comic books, pe­ri­od­i­cals and the web, the selections rep­re­sent both the old guard and the up and com­ers. In­die stand­bys Charles Burns, R. Crumb, the Her­nan­dez Brothers and Chris Ware are shuf­fled up with strip artist Richard Thomp­son ( Cul de Sac), graphic mem­oirist Miriam Katin ( Let­ting It Go) and In­ter­net sen­sa­tion Al­lie Brosh ( Hy­per­bole and a Half), among many oth­ers. The 2014 col­lec­tion is de­signed to whet your ap­petite and deepen your un­der­stand­ing of the art form in its most re­cent in­car­na­tions.
