THE BEST AMERICAN COMICS 2017 has touched down at Copacetic. Pittsburgh is well represented in this Ben Katchor – with able guidance and assists from series editor, Bill Kartalopoulos – edited volume, with both Ed Piskor and Laura PallMall taking bows. PIX/Copacetic-connected comics are in evidence as well, with PIX 2017 Special Guests Dan Zettwoch and Lale Westvind along with PIX 2016 Special Guests Bill Griffith and Conor Stechschulte. Recent Copacetic release party principal, Patrick Kyle is here as is Comics Workbook mainstay and honorary Pittsburgher, Kurt Ankeny. And, speaking ofComics Workbook. Sienna Cittadino's piece in this volume was originally created for the Comics Workbook Composition Competition, founded and organized by Frank Santoro right here in Pittsburgh, PA!
And, of course, there are plenty more great comics from around America to be found in the 376 packed pages of this great hardcover volume. Of special note to Copacetic customers is the inclusion of John Hankiewicz's self-published short comics piece, De Hooch, which few have seen.
