New Realities: The Comics of Dash Shaw

Uncivilized Books / · english

Dash Shaw is one of the most restless cartoonists of recent decades. Since his breakthrough graphic novel Bottomless Belly Button, Shaw has constantly evolved his approach to the comics page. His acclaimed, idiosyncratic comics shift from domestic realism to sci-fi farce to historical fiction and formally innovative line and color. Comics as different as the dystopian spectacle Body World and the geek-culture comedy Cosplayers become sites of clashes between incompatible mindsets. In New Realities, critic Greg Hunter (The Comics Journal) follows the through-line across this adventurous body of work.
