The sixth volume of this acclaimed quarterly comics anthology continues in the same accessible, reasonably priced format that has made it the most popular anthology of the year (garnering Harvey and Eisner nominations), spotlighting a regular cast of a dozen of today's most exciting cartoonists. In addition to the notable rising stars in every issue, this volume premieres the first chapter of "At Loose Ends" by Lewis Trondheim, an autobiographical diary comic that portrays Trondheim at a crossroads: after reaching the height of commercial success in middle age, how does he stay true to himself as an artist and not become a hack? The strip provides a unique resonance juxtaposed alongside several of the most exciting young cartoonists working today, including all-new work from "Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer" nominees Jonathan Bennett and R. Kikuo Johnson, as well as Tim Hensley, Jeffrey Brown, David Heatley, Paul Hornschemeier, Anders Nilsen, Sophie Crumb, Martin Cendreda and Gabrielle Bell.
