Recommended for: No one
Read from February 24 to 26, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

There's only one thing worth reading in here and it's by Kevin Huizenga. The rest is so much garbage. I was forcing myself through it by the end. This just reinforces my feeling that comics anthologies are usually uneven at best, and often truly terrible. It's such a strong contrast with collections of prose fiction. The first two 20-page stories in the one I'm reading right now were worth the price of admission alone. Kramers Ergot does not justify its price at all.

I know it's unfair to write this whole series off based on the third and eighth installments, but that's exactly what I'm doing. I cannot understand what people enjoy about these weak stories or their awful art. Life's too short to keep wasting it on crappy comics anthologies. wtf do people like about these collections?

Erik Erickson Ha. This series is so popular and, at least after the release of volume 5, considered the vanguard of new comics. Crazy.
