Sturm's Golem is the Best of 2001

“TIME'S Best of 2001” / TIME Magazie / TIME Comix / March 17, 2003

The Great American Sport meets the Great American Artform. Based on the Jewish legend of the Golem, it's about a barnstorming Jewish baseball team of the 1920s. Astonishingly, the book feels like the best baseball games: a seat-gripping drama made up of little dramas, all of which add up to something greater than just a game. Nostalgic without being saccharine, the art has the look of old baseball cards put together to tell a story. This one book ties together sport, art and literature into a grand-slam comicbook.
