Griffin, Erin & Warhaftig, Sarah Louise (editors) – Always Comix #4
Always Comix #4 edited by Erin Griffin & Sarah Louise Warhaftig
Once of these days I’ll settle on a universal standard for reviewing anthologies.Â Is it best just to list the talent involvedÂ and leave everything else a mystery?Â Or is it best to go through every story and one page image one by one, leaving nothing for a future reader to discover? How about splitting the difference.Â Here’s a list of the people involved, outside of the editors because duh: Falynn Koch, Jeremy Tinder, Will Kirkby, Josh Blair, Colin Tedford, Matt Wiegle, Alvaro Lopez, Colleen Macisaac, Amanda Kirk, L. Nichols, Ed Moorman, Box Brown, Alisa Harris, Josh P.M., and Joe Decie.Â As this is the Activity issue, there’s plenty in here to do, for the active comics reader.Â There’s recipes, a maze, even a mad lib.Â Specifically I enjoyed the guide to getting over your cat allergies by Sarah Louise Warhaftig (because any “how to” guide that ends with acheiving Nirvana is hard not to love), the attack of the clouds by Falynn Koch (not so much an activity but still funny), Amanda Kirk’s cut and paste page, Ed Moorman’s guide to inner peace, Joe Decie’s guide to fun with matches, and Box Brown’s “wrestler or tattoo artist” quiz.Â There, that still leaves plenty to the imagination, right?Â It’s a fun anthology even without all the practical tips and with them, well, what more could you ask for?Â $4
