A Grab-Bag of Works
Monthly Anthology of the Year: Cinema Purgatorio
When creators are allowed to basically do whatever they want things can easily go horrifically wrong. Thankfully this anthology full of people telling bizarre yarns has been a treat to read, and I look forward to enjoying it as long as Avatar Press publishes it/Alan Moore feels like doing it.
Anthology Collection of the Year: Kramer's Ergot 9
Throughout all the creative minds helming it, its changes in publishers, size-shifts with every edition, and general changes every time a new edition has come out, one thing has remained constant with "Kramer's Ergot," and that is how it contains fascinating comics and artwork. Opening up this 9th edition is like stepping into a surreal world. Picture a barren landscape, but as you start to walk around mirages appear. Some are beautiful and incredible, others are abrasive and intimidating, and they flicker in-and-out, disappearing as quickly they appear, living you disoriented and half terrified of your hallucinations and half hoping they never stop because you feel your brain being stimulated in ways like never before. That's what it is like to read, "Kramer's Ergot 9," in a nutshell. Read it and you'll see what I mean, because I think I've now explained it the best I can!
