Bechdel, Alison, 1960-
I often frequent Alison's blog/youtube channel her artistic process (and life) are fascinating. This is a great look into what made her such a fascinatingly complex and anxious person.

Brown, Jeffrey, 1975-
It was bizarre reading this book because I found myself feeling like I had nothing to write a graphic novel about anymore... I had so much in common with the author! XD This is really great stuff!

Brunetti, Ivan.
I find his earlier work to be much funnier because it is so much more shocking and sick. Toward the middle of the book I was already sick of it all (and I even found myself becoming depressed). The end of the book was a relief, because you find that Ivan is in a much better place emotionally and mentally, but I felt like the humor was really lacking... Maybe I'm just a sick puppy? XP

Clowes, Daniel.
(LOL, why are they using the cover of Maggie The Mechanic for Ghost World?) Ghost World got me into indie comics. Teen angst at it's best. Very familiar. Great book.

Where demented wented : the art and comics of Rory Hayes
Hayes, Rory, 1949-1983.
Hilarious and amazingly sick. The tragic story of R. Hayes made me fall even harder in love with him. Really fascinating.

Hernandez, Jaime.
I had only ever heard of Jaime once through a really old issue of Wizard magazine. I only recently got a chance to really get a good look at his work when I found this at MPLS CENTRAL LIBRARY and now I'm in love! Maggie, Hopey and the rest of the girls (even the boys) are all lovable and beautifully drawn. Jaime's art is PERFECTION! Classy and retro, but punky and fun! It's simple, but heavily detailed. Jaime rekindled that fire in me that made me wanna be a comic artist.

Kishiro, Yukito.
Yukito at his best. This is an amazing story. Great action sequences in a heavily detailed and amazing sci-fi world. Loaded with tragedy and lots of realistic human emotion. Some of the most beautiful manga art of all time. READ THIS SERIES!

Kurimoto, Kaoru, 1953-2009.
I found this fascinating and somewhat disgusting, lol. I really liked it! The art was generally good, but the anatomy was inconsistent. It is a more unique and distinct style though. Read it if you like funky dark fantasy.

Purple pickle juice
Mayer, Mercer, 1943-
As if Mercer Mayer's art wasn't cute enough, he had to go and do something I'm a sucker for. This has been a fave of mine since I was about 10. The art is whimsical and brings back great memories of my childhood Halloweens... And it's funny cuz I used to drink pickle juice because of this book! XD

Prayer requested
Northeast, Christian
Not only is the art really interesting and funny, but the strangeness of some of these REAL prayers totally amazes me. This is a really funny book for anyone who can either laugh at themselves or is an atheist. XD

Literally one of the coolest books I've ever read. I wish the images in my mind while reading this book could be put on film for me share with other people. This book inspires so much artistic excitement in me that it hurts! XD

Schwartz, Alvin, 1927-
These books were the source of so much childhood anxiety for me. I remember having panic attacks at the very mention of "Scary Stories". Steven Gammell is an amazing artist and has inspired lots of my own artwork. I'm very proud that he is one of MN's own local artists! :3

I felt like I found this forgotten on a park bench in Uptown. It was like a wonderful and funny surprise. And I'm a real sucker for personal sketch diaries. :3

Weinstein, Lauren R.
Dude, this is one of the funniest books I've ever read. This book needs more recognition. It's bizarre, twisted and a lot like hanging with a group of friends while you laugh at inside jokes.
