From Wonderland With Love Danish Comics Anthology

In all the excitement over manga from Japan and bandes dessinées from France, it's easy to forget that most other countries have a thriving comics culture all their own. This eye-popping anthology, assembled by Danish publisher/editor/translator Steffen Maarup, introduces adventurous readers to 18 exciting talents, most of whom are taking their first bow on the English-speaking stage.

Other major revelations include Julie Nord's elegantly drawn 'From Wonderland With Love' (which gives the collection its title), a modernistic riff on Alice in Wonderland, and Ib Kjeldsmark's 'Sloth,' a riotously punk-inflected day-glo duo-toned road trip. The book also spotlights the snarky and surreal single-panel work and gags by HuskMitNavn, Christoffer Zieler, and Johan F. Krarup; the visually explosive silent Publisher: Fantagraphics
