Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S 'MAIN FEATURE':
This is a review on 'SEEDS' - An Anthology Of Comics About Food...
Matt Levin, about whom I blogged about HERE, sent me this publication for possible mention / review in my Blog.
So, what's this publication about? I grabbed this excerpt from the Trees and Hills Comics Group Web Site:
"Seeds - by Adam Kaiser, Anne Thalheimer, Blake Parker, Colin Tedford, Colleen Frakes, Dan Archer, Daniel Barlow, E.J. Barnes, Jesse DuRona, Keith Moriarty, Marek Bennett, Matt Levin, Matt Sundstrom, Max Lewis, Mike Lynch, Mischa Rich, RF, Sam Leveillee, Star Chickaderis.
The new Trees & Hills anthology contains comics about FOOD with an emphasis on its social aspects. It comes with a booklet of cartoonists’ favorite recipes and a packet of organic lettuce seeds from a Vermont farm, and the whole package is wrapped in an apple-stamped cover (the apples, of course, were organic heirloom varieties from a VT farmer’s market…).
How cool is that? Get it now, nourish your mind, and prepare yourself for the planting season!"
Okay... that's definitely a different type of publication, but you know what?
It was a FUN READ! Why?
Because it had so many different stories in it, that several were very interesting to me! The others, like all anthologies that are sent to me for possible review, were of varying levels of interest to me personally.
Some of the features that really jumped out at me were:
The Introduction: 'Truth In the Dirt' - a text peice by Daniel Barlow
'The Sugar Tree' by Matthew Sundstrom
'Apple Rant' by Colin Tedford
'Food Chain' by Daniel Barlow, Keith Moriarty and Matthew Reidsma
'Seeds Part 2': Attack' by Marek Bennett
'Food' by Matt Levin
This is definitely a 'message' publication, but whether or not you 'get the message' or even care for the 'message', there is also entertainment value in it.
PLUS: There is a packet of 'Seeds' for YOU to grow! Now that's different! No 'variant covers' here! LOL
