If you were looking for a primer for contemporary comic strips this is the perfect place to start, branching out from the autobiographical strips of Seth and Chester Brown to Marc Bell’s queasy E-numbered surrealism and Genevieve Castree’s gorgeous, intricate Blankets Are Always Sleeping, a strip that riffs on a repeated single-panel design full of duvets and anxiety, to the primary coloured simplicity of Anouk Ricard’s comic… There is so much out there and so much of it is good.
