    1. [A version of this review, in German, appeared in the Swiss comics journal STRAPAZIN.]Comics anthologies are a tough sell. Literally. A few years ago Brett Warnock, founder of Top Shelf, one of the more successful small-press publishers in the US, confided to me, “Anthologies have always been one of my passions but, sadly, they are just not commercially sustainable.” His confession was an ironic one: Top Shelf began its life as a wonderful (eponymous) comics anthology.However difficult antho [...]
