Syncopated GN (2009 Villard) comic books
1st printing. Edited by Brendan Burford. A graphic anthology with a unique hook: Syncopated collects the best in nonfiction by today's most talented graphic artists. The graphic medium has become a popular and provocative platform for nonfiction, and this innovative anthology collects powerful memoirs, profiles, and reportage from gifted, up-and-coming creators.
