DRAWN AND QUARTERLY - VOL. 4

Launched some 10 years ago, this alternative-comics anthology has morphed from a four-times-yearly magazine (hence the title) to an annual coffee-table book that handsomely showcases some of the field's leading talents. The collection has an international bent, not just in its contributors, who hail from France and Switzerland as well as the U.S and Canada, but also in its subject matter. For instance, the longest entry is a "meticulously-researched," 54-page, warts-and-all biography of Tintin creator Herge. Other highlights include R. Sikoryak's "Hester's Little Pearl," which casts the characters of "Little Lulu" in The Scarlet Letter rendered in the famous strip's style, and Hungarian-born Miriam Katin's childhood memoir of Russian tanks rolling into Budapest to crush the 1956 revolution. Yet the standout here is a 30-page section reprinting Frank King's 1920s-vintage "Gasoline Alley" Sunday strips, which prove graphically sophisticated while nostalgically evoking a simpler America. The impressive bounty displayed on this Drawn and Quarterly's oversize pages may make many adult comics fans wish the publication's frequency still lived up to its title.
