    I don't know why I like political cartoons: they're barely politics, they're barely art, and the people who make them barely get paid. In an age when Michael "DEBT" Ramirez has two Pulitzers and Glenn and Gary McCoy are still syndicated, it might be best to entomb the whole medium with Thomas Nash and Paul Conrad and call it 'done'.* The Nib is a brave effort by cartoonist Matt Bors to bring the medium into the 21st century, with the hope that the right image in the right time can go viral, can s I don't know why I like political cartoons: they're barely politics, they're barely art, and the people who make them barely get paid. In an age when Michael "DEBT" Ramirez has two Pulitzers and Glenn and Gary McCoy are still syndicated, it might be best to entomb the whole medium with Thomas Nash and Paul Conrad and call it 'done'.* The Nib is a brave effort by cartoonist Matt Bors to bring the medium into the 21st century, with the hope that the right image in the right time can go viral, can say what people can't say on their own, and make a difference. Like the cover says, this volume is a record of the best of the Nib's first year and a bit, with a talented list of artists you can google on your own. The topics are a smorgasbord that is very very 2014. Dumb internet jokes about the sad states of millennials, long confessional graphic essays about miscarriage, rape, and depression, stabs against the injustices of shootings in Ferguson and at Charlie Hebdo. Personally, I would have cut some of the longer and less artistically interesting essays (lots of literal talking heads) in favor of more sharp or symbolic pieces, or even essays on what the hell 2014 was, but this is a solid collection of young and diverse artistic talents. That's why I'm dinging it a star compared to my much treasured books by Tim Kreider. But if you like paper books and political cartoons, there's nothing better that's to celebrate the present state of the field. *the fact that I know all these names is a sign of a deep problem. If you recognize these names too, seek help.

    An amazing way to end the year in comics. Eat More Comics is an anthology of some of the best comics on the web. Unlike most anthologies, I LOVED the majority of the submission and those that I did not love I still really enjoyed. The first comic, Modern Curses by Gemma Correll, was a fantastic way to start it all off. It was a funny little gibe that left me chuckling, especially the 'May There Eternally Be An Unexpected Item in Your Bagging Area'. And it just gets rolling from there.

I could go an list every comic I found interesting or insightful or poignant or otherwise moving in some way, but I would pretty much be listing the majority of them. A few of my favorites, a few that really make this worth the effort of acquiring, would be: False Idols: Boomers Icons and Their Crimes by J. J. McCullough (who also has a great Youtube channel) Highgate County Fancy Chicken Show by Eleanor Davis (my favorite comic of all time) Lighten Up by Ron Wimberly Yemen Bombs Yet Another Wedding in America by Matt Bors Your Worst Fears also by Matt Bors We're Going On a Bear Hunt by Eleri Harris Various authors addressing various topics, but always topics that feel timely and important. Eat More Comics is a anthology I will happily recommend to whoever will listen.

    I picked this book up on a whim at the used bookstore and quickly realised that The Nib was responsible for many of the political and satirical comics I enjoy online. This is a massive anthology of their best works and you'll find comics like Trigger Warning: Breakfast by Anon Anon, I Want to Live by Erika Moen, and Not All Men by Matt Lubchansky. It's fun, biting, witty commentary on society and I enjoyed the hell out of it.

    This was a kickstarter project that pulled together a bunch of web comics from a number of artists that had been published on "The Nib". It was spearheaded by Matt Bors, one of my favorite comics and contained a few others that I already knew and liked. Eat More Comics was a good way to be exposed to some other artists and subjects that I hadn't made time to read online. The book is beautifully produced, which added a tactile aspect that you don't get with these as web comics.

    I've been a fan of The Nib ever since they started out on Medium. All the comics in the book have previously been published online, but it's a great collection to have in an easy-to-read book that you can revisit again and again. The Nib is home to some of the most sharp and poignantly funny political cartoons and satire I have come across, and I'm so thrilled to have it be a part of my book collection.

    There were some gems in this collection, but a lot of stuff felt either way too on-the-nose, or worse, too far the opposite direction -- you can reasonably expect the former of a political cartoon, but one that just presents some facts or stats on an issue without taking a stance falls pretty flat as it turns out.

    Runs the gamut of every emotion, and some really hit you hard. Great balance between humor and seriousness, and an honesty and humanity in so many of these works. Get after it.
