This issue of the Journal makes for great reading: The Comics Journal #281 is our annual, controversial Year in Review issue, with our always hotly debated list of 2006's best comics and graphic novels. In addition to looks at the finest comics from 2006 by a host of cartoonists and critics, there are also feature interviews with gekiga pioneer Yoshihiro Tatsumi and Lost Girls artist Melinda Gebbie, plus short interviews with Lauren Weinstein, Miriam Katin, Megan Kelso, Renee French, Kim Deitch and Gilbert Hernandez. Also: Tom Crippen's look at Marvel's Civil War mega-crossover, Tim O'Neil's examination of Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik's online-comics phenomenon Penny Arcade, and much more. And from the past, we unearth a treasure trove of never-before-collected comic strips — Salesman Sam, Nonsense and High Pressure Pete — by George Swanson, whose comics, including the long-running The Flop Family, graced the newspaper page for more than 50 years. This generous 50-page retrospective is presented in full color!
