As Tom noted, The Comics Journal 296 is now available. Bill has a review of Gene Kannenberg’s 500 Essential Graphic Novels and shorter reviews of Aya of Yop City;Souvlaki Circus and Katja Tukiainen Works, Tom has a short review of Neil Gaiman: Prince of Stories and of The DC Vault; I’ve got a long review of a Garfield anthology and Garfield without Garfield, and short reviews of Metamorpho: Year One, Scud the Disposable Assassin, and Meatcake 17. Also Bill and I contributed to the best of 2008 feature. So lots of Hooded goodness….
