The Hollywood Reporter Loves The Greatest of Marlys!

“Book Gift Guide 2016 ” / The Hollywood Reporter / John DeFore / December 20, 2016

Published last year, Fantagraphics' The Complete Eightball paved the way for several newer collections of seminal indie comics, some of them (like the work of Dan Clowes) due for big-screen adaptation. Fanta's crop this year includes collections of Peter Bagge's Neat Stuff and Kaz's Popeye-meets-punk opus Underworld. The New York Review of Books devotes Almost Completely Baxter to the singularly weird single-panel creations of Glen Baxter, and Ben Katchor's Cheap Novelties, which turns 25 this year, gets a beautiful hardcover edition from Drawn & Quarterly. D&Q has perhaps the year's most welcome comix title with The Greatest of Marlys, collecting Lynda Barry's alt-weekly newspaper staple about the weird, freckly, unstoppable title character.
