Notables 2010: Nicholas Breutzman

Nicholas Breutzman, “My Town,” The Good Minnesotan #3, 2008, and Yearbooks, 2009.

Yearbooks was another of the three “runners-up.” Which is especially nice, since we have a slight conflict of interest in this case. Nic is a former student and a friend, and we even blurbed this book. But we really do think he’s an amazing cartoonist, and fortunately were confirmed in this by the fact that Neil agreed. “My Town” displays the really inventive page and type design Nic sometimes uses, and both that and Yearbooks take place in creepy suburban/exurban worlds that seem just outside real life. To quote my own blurb on Yearbooks: “Strange, gross, and lovely, Yearbooks is just connected enough to real high school memories to really freak you out.” OK, I could have probably said that better, but you get what I mean.

Age: teen. quite risqué but very tuned into teen anxieties

    Thanks Jessica! I love Nic’s comix! As an aside, we recently changed our blog a bit and the link no longer works… I hope it’s not a bother to fix. Sorry about that! And if it is a bother, no biggie.

    Thanks for letting us know–I think it’s all fixed now. Let me know if there’s a better page to link to.
