26. Review: Baltic anthology š! #23 offers big art in a small package

š!23coverThe Balkan comics anthology š! from kuš! is one of the more challenging delights of the comics world, grafting the sensibility of a contemporary art gallery onto the comics page. It regularly presents challenging and edgy work, often abstract, but with enough show of personality that you can see these are the works of real humans, and it comes in a striking mini-digest format that evokes Little Big Books, adding to its appeal as an object to display.

27. Rising stars: Tillie Walden is a name you’re going to hear a lot more about

waldenlgYou know how you hear a name or a word for the first time and then suddenly that name or word is everywhere? Well that name is Tillie Walden, a student from Austin, TX, currently a student at the Center for Cartoon Studies in VT, who is poised to be one of the hottest cartoonists of 2016, after an already spectacular 2015. (Word on the street is that she may have even been part of the inspiration for this infamous comic.) Walden is barely 20 years old (she was born in 1996)and already has amazing drawing chops and solid storytelling—she has several short comics posted on her site that you can read in their entirety. Broken Frontier just named her their Breakout Talent of 2015 and if this is the first time you're hearing about her, it's probably not the last.
