I review Beasts, Lynda Barry’s Best American Comics, and a big art book called “Signs of the Apocalypse/Rapture” in this week’s Chicago Reader. The first line of the review was supposed to be:

“For the latest Best American Comics anthology, guest editor Lynda Barry has selected works that are richly literary, deeply felt, and fucking boring.”

Something got lost in the editing process, alas. It’s still pretty mean, though, so I guess I can’t complain.

On the other hand, I liked Beasts a lot.
