Irony and subtly are the first casualties
in the eternal battle of wits between people divided by a common language. So read between the lines or you'll fall through the cracks...
....Quoting other people is no substitute for thinking for yourself...

I AM more or less up to date with Southern Bastards and Nailbiter, both of which are excellent and recommended.
Southern Bastards is indeed a very interesting read.
Giant Days (Boom! Box; John Allison,Lissa Treiman,Wihtney Cogar)
The trials and tribulations of three young women starting at university.
Just great fun with very likeable characters.
Beauty (NBM;Kerascoet and Hubert)
Very intersting variation of a fairy tale theme.
A fairy gifts the homely Morue with beauty.
But this gift destroys more than one life and a kingdom or two
Portugal (NBM; Cyril Pedrosa)
The burned out artist and teacher Muchat returns to his homeland Portugal for a familiy celebration after years of absence.
Engaging story about a, not always very likeable, character on his way of self dicovery and to find his love for life back.
The Only Living Boy (Papercutz;David Gallaher and Steve Ellis)
The runaway Erik wakes up after finding shelter in a park in a different fantastic world as the only human between
mermaid warriors,dragons an insect princess and a couple of monsters.
Fantastic rollercoaster adventure.
Feathers (Archaia;Jorge Corona and Jen Hickman)
Poe, covered from head to toe in black feathers, abondened as a baby,
lives a hidden life under the protection of his adoptive father in the Maze.
A slum seperated from the wealthy by a huge wall. One night he meets Bianca
from the other the side of the wall and together they have the adventure of a lifetime.
Charming and fantastic story.

I think PATIENCE is wonderful, and one of the more pulpier genre-type works Dan Clowes has done. I feel like if there's any book of his that people on this board might like it's that one. I brought up Chris Ware a while back and felt like I was gonna get run out of town on a rail. I agree with you that the books Image put out are just better versions of the type of stories that Marvel and DC put out. Pulp sci-fi and fantasy, just without the costumes. Same thing with Valiant.

But his work at Image is even better by a wide margin. I have read the first tpb of Low and I thought it was extraordinary. Since then I have been waiting for the dlx hc.

Make sure you check out Low.
