Chimo by David Collier. All for the tone. (Reminds me why I like Dan Zettwoch too.) I also recommend this essay from The McGill Daily about the book's asymptotes: judgement, family life.

Surely there must be an interesting way to engage with the work of Kim Deitch. I have not found this way. Skewing the Fleischer era is thin stuff. Anyway, this page from A Shroud for Waldo (1992) is pretty madcap and lands on a fine gag.

I won't mention that I keep stumbling upon this new genre of comics about teaching comics. Woof. But this Brunetti piece, "Mr. Peach," is one smart single page. Nothing like breaking up a New Yorker with colorful despair. You can use despair wisely instead of isolating it in foolproof packages.
