From the Back Cover:

It's been fun watching the stories talk to each other at night, find common ground, share a smoke, hook up in the broom closet - even when their authors arose from wildly different schools of writing and art. -- Scott McCloud, from the Introduction

Featuring Allie Brosh, Charles Burns, R. Crumb and Aline Kominsky-Crumb, C.F., Michael DeForge, Gilbert Hernandez, Aidan Koch, Raina Telgemeier, Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware, and others.

"A gorgeous book that does right by its subject matter...With its smart format and context, 'The Best American Comics 2014' not only manages to unite clashing styles under one roof, it also makes an intimidatingly vast world of gorgeous, often challenging art accessible to a general audience." -- The Denver Post

"This edition may be the best one yet...[McCloud] constructs this collection in an interesting and thoughtful way that makes these excerpts of some of the year’s best comics fit together in a cohesive manner." -- Miami Herald

"If there's one thing Scott McCloud is better at than making comics, it'sexplaining comics, which makes him the best possible editor for this year's Best American Comics. McCloud's volume is surprising, delightful, diverse, brave and endlessly wonderful." -- Boing, Boing

"The Best American Comics 2014 is the best edition of The Best American Comics to ever be published...The best book I've ever read in the whole Best American series. It's informative, funny, surprising, and a satisfying reading experience on its own. This should be the book that every Best American guest editor aspires to emulate in years to come." -- The Stranger

"Whether you want a laugh, intrigue, romance, or just plain weird, there’s something for everyone in this hardcover book." -- The Awesomer

"McCloud could be the medium’s foremost deep thinker...There is much to be gained from his comprehensive embrace of the form and his nuanced, knowledgeable, and friendly essays preceding each of the themed sections...A master class in how to find the universally accessible in the intimately personal and transform images into emotions...Every page drives home the point that, if you can add only one book to your adult graphic-novel collection this year, this has got to be it." -- Booklist, starred review
