for a voyage to the outer reaches of imagination. Whether
it's stopping by Queerwater, Kansas, to see Jack B. Quick
or visiting Promethea in Misty Magic Land, surfing the boundaries
of the farthest dimensions with Tom Strong's daughter Tesla
as she searches for her missing friend or just pouring over
the sketches and drawings of your favourite ABC artists, this
collection is a cornucopia of fantastic comics. Some might
even say... America's best comics...
Best Comics is
a strange beast. And I'm actually struggling to think who
it is really aimed at. It tries to be wacky and off the wall
- but fails more times than it succeeds. The Jack B. Quick
stories, which are usually very funny, seem to be a little
on the naff side in this collection. And the usually amusing
Splash Brannigan barely manages to raise a smile in
the feeble story generated here. In fact, the only really
interesting addition in this collection is The First American.
far my biggest complaint is that around a quarter of this
collection is taken up with sketchbook illustrations of the
characters in this volume. Now, a few pages I can stomach,
but over 50 pages? I think a lot of readers will feel conned
America's best comics at all. Avoid.
