Drawn & Quarterly Showcase: Book Five

The D&Q Showcase Series

October 2008

The Drawn & Quarterly Showcase is a new talent anthology and the only annual collection to have the focused visual acumen of D+Q editor-in-chief Chris Oliveros, who scours the globe for three cartoonists to spotlight and introduce to North American readers. More often than not, it is the first time the cartoonists have had the chance to work in full-color with twenty-five pages, and on such a wide-reaching visual platform. The series is hailed for its consistent quality and for the superior editorial vision of its short stories, volume after volume.

Book Five features Anneli Furmark (Sweden), Amanda V�h�m�ki (Finland), and T. Edward Bak (United States), with cover art by V�h�m�ki.


Praise for Book Four:

"At a time when there's a very healthy field of good anthologies being published, Drawn & Quarterly Showcase continues to stand out, here in its fourth volume presenting three stories that are each something special and deeply enjoyable...This here is another strong Showcase, spotlighting some truly notable creative talent."--Nashville City Paper

"Together these three short stories manage to flesh out another issue of a collection that, if not the best of its kind, may perhaps be the sturdiest currently being published."--The Comics Journal

Drawn & Quarterly Showcase: Book Three

The D&Q Showcase Series

Genevi�ve Castr�e (m. Elverum), Sammy Harkham and Matt Broersma.
(100 pages)

PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY STARRED REVIEW (May 2005)

Every year Drawn & Quarterly offers an anthology of lengthy stories by emerging young cartoonists; this installment is the strongest thus far, and a visually stunning book to boot. Elverum's "We're Wolf" is composed of a trilogy of adult fables about happiness, sadness and companionship drawn in a graceful, languid style. The vibrant colors, rarely seen in comics, give the artwork a fantastic life on the page, and the story announces Elverum as a major young talent. Occupying the middle spot is Kramer's Ergot editor Harkham's "Somersaulting," a tale of two friends and a long summer. Using a muted color palette of yellow, orange and black, Harkham effortlessly controls the story's mood, summoning the languid pace of summer as well as the gradual discovery of love and sex in the suburbs. Neither cynical nor sentimental, this tale plays like a long, clear-eyed tone poem to teenage summers. After two such dreamy stories, Broersma rounds out the book with the two-part "The Mummy," a charming and funny romp through a mythical mid-20th-century European locale, featuring tongue-in-cheek romance, intrigue and ghosts. Entertaining and wittily executed, it's the perfect complement to the more serious works in this essential new volume.
