is the premier comics anthology of the 21st century. It has always been a reflection of editor Sammy Harkham's current interests in comics past and future. In that spirit, with this new volume, the he severs Kramers Ergot

is a complete shift both aesthetically and physically. The size of the book is smaller, to encourage a more intimate reading of the material, and the content reflects a focus on substantial works from a small group of no more than a dozen artists.
