Missing Links: Newave!

Posted by on July 16th, 2010 at 12:01 AM

Various; Michael Dowers, ed.; Fantagraphics; $24.99, 892 pp.; Hardcover, Color, B&W; ISBN: 978-1606993132 Newave! is an astonishing collection of minicomic from the '70s, '80s and early '90s, roughly from the collapse of the underground comics distribution system to the inception of the Xeric grant and an increasingly wider scope of small-press comics shows. This book puts the lie to the notion that underground cartooning was lying fallow during this period; indeed, all it did was really go underground.
