The Wonderful Year collects comics from Becca Taylor’s early 2000’s minicomic series of the same name. Becca’s clear thin-line style drawings are densely laid out on pages resembling a sketchbook. The dialogue in The Wonderful Year are snippets and moments of larger conversations, evoking the “overheard” section of alt. news weeklies. The conversations form a poetry of ideas and issues surrounding 20-somethings in Chicago.
Also included in these poetic comics are some treats that benefit inquisitive readers, including small flip-book style animations, cameos by cartoonists, and different unnamed-yet-identifiable locations!
