Some of the stories were cute as well as the art. However I found that there were many stories for which the size of the book shrank the artwork so much that I had trouble distinguishing anything.

The Anthology Project has a simple mandate: to collect comics from artists who pursue compelling narratives and have published notable works in sequential arts. In short, "[i]ts humble intent is only to delight"—and I assure you, the book delights on numerous levels. I have a soft spot for comic collections and literary journals for their variance and their promise of new talent to discover. And, for the first time in quite a few years, I've found an ant

Some stories were well thought out, others felt forced like they had an ideal but no place to stand with it. Wish by Joy Ang, The Unicorn by Christopher Ryzebol special thanks Tom Rhodes, and Mr.Dung and Beetle by Darren Rawlings, were my favorites out of all the stories. Those three could stand alone and have their own books in my opinion.

The artwork is beautiful...some of the tales are downright awesome. This is something I'd like to see in a larger format, to get really in depth with the pictures. I felt like I was missing out on some of the stories simply because I couldn't see all the details clearly.

Beautiful and varied artwork from many talented creators. The tagline says these stories are meant to delight the reader, but a number of them were just fucking sad.

Some of the little comics are really nice and funny but some of them do not MAKE sense at all.

An interesting mix of graphic artist styles. Many of the stories don't use much words but rely on the art to tell the story. There is a little discrepancy in consistency of moods if you read the stories back to back.

I fell in love with the cover at the comic book store and greedily bought both volumes. The art is gorgeous and the storytelling is nothing to sneeze at either.

As a...hobby artist, I found this inspirational and so well done. I will pour over it again and again.

I think I liked volume 2 (, which I read first, much better. This one was very surreal and very bleak.

I loved Joy Ang's 'Wish' – the text is funny and the artwork is gorgeous. The rest, I'm sorry to say, were either boring or impossible to follow.

The artwork in The Anthology Project is to be admired! I can't wait for the next one!

An interesting collection of art and stories, though only a few really stand out to me.
