Graphic Novel A Day: Meathaus Vol. 8

Company: Alternative Press
Price: $14.95 ($10.17 on Amazon)

A collection of short stories from a variety of talented indy cartoonists. As with many of these small press anthologies, a lot of the stories are just way too weird for me, but there's some great artistry throughout. My particular favorite cartoonists working on this volume are Becky Cloonan, Brandon Graham, James Jean, Jimm Rugg, Scott Morse, Jim Mahfood, Tomer Hanuka, Nate Powell and Farel Dalrymple, but there's just a ton of talent onboard. I'm particularly amused (and disturbed) by the contribution of Mickey Duzyj, who offers up a tale of giant naked old women fighting it out in a city using laser guns. Seriously. I don't care who you are, that's just awesome.
