Penelope!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 12 Jan 2009 7:26 AM
You should all head over to Rob Clough's HIGH-LOW site right now, read his Top 50 for 2008, and then thank him for getting it done when he did, because late last week he and his wife welcomed baby daughter Penelope into the world, and I guarantee you that if he hadn't finished that Top 50 before she was born, you would never have gotten the chance to read it. Which is my way of saying congratulations to Rob and Laura, who are about as kind as anyone you'll meet and will no doubt make fantastic parents.

Monologues for Calculating the Density of Black Holes by Anders Nilsen

Monologues for Calculating the Density of Black Holes
By Anders Nilsen

Monologues for Calculating the Density of Black Holes takes up where the artist’s first volume, Monologues for the Coming Plague, left off. Like Coming Plague, Density of Black Holes is a creatively experimental laboratory, comprising a collection of free flowing stream-of-consciousness gags, strips, and drawings that slowly coalesce into an unexpectedly compelling and complex narrative. The hints of story that came together in Coming Plague are extrapolated and expanded upon and grow to incorporate some of Nilsen's other outré strips from the anthology MOME, two of which are reprinted here in expanded form. The book is an audacious investigation into the rhythms of storytelling, the blurring of media, and an exercise in reconciling contrasts. It is playful, provocative and serious all at once — another tour de force by Anders Nilsen, impeccably and uniquely designed, in monochrome and full color.

400-page monochrome/full-color 5" x 8" softcover • $22.99
