41 Down, 11 To Go "Drawn & Quarterly Showcase Volume 5" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Along with the Kramers Ergot, Drawn & Quarterly's Showcase series is the place where I am most likely to discover my next favorite cartoonist. Drawn & Quarterly Showcase Volume 5 features new works by Anneli Furmark, Amanda Vähämäki, and T. Edward Bak. I have come to expect great things from Drawn & Quarterly in these volumes (actually in everything they publish), and these three stories leverage the power of comics as a storytelling tool exquisitely. I am looking forward to seeing more work from each of the artists, but especially Amanda Vähämäki, whose tale of magical realism is one of the most original and visually arresting comics I have read all year.
