3:24pm: War of the Anthologies


Got my comp copy of BIZARRO WORLD [as did, I'm sure, the contributors]. Reports of the release are leaking out all over the internet. I think it hits shelves in a week or two. This is a highly anticipated book for the comix industry. A clash of the mainstream and alternative titans, only "there is no mainstream," as far as I'm concerned. I've read half the book and it's pretty good. A great sequel. Chris Duffy and Scott Morse provide a nifty introductory story that launches the experience quite well. I dug the first volume but the bookends were a bit much. I can't see why this concept couldn't be a monthly anthology collected annually.

Sneak preview of BIZARRO WORLD:

Of course, the alternative response to BIZARRO WORLD is PROJECT: SUPERIOR coming very soon from AdHouse Books: http://www.adhousebooks.com/
