Ware, Chris. The Best American Comics 2007 (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 2007)

The second annual edition of the Best American Comics series (see my review of the 2006 edition here) once again lives up to its name, although some of the works selected--as in any anthology of this size--don't ring my bell. BAC 2007 contains a chapter from Alison Bechdel's Fun Home (Amazon, my review), one from Adrian Tomine's Shortcomings, and some fine shorter contributions from Kevin Huizenga, Jaime Hernandez, and Ivan Brunetti.

This is an excellent compilation, and one hopes that it will draw even more attention to comics creators that are out of the superhero mainstream. There's no evidence of a "sophomore slump" in this series, which bodes well for the future.
