Notables 2010: Warren Craghead III

Warren Craghead III, “Un Caligramme,” Abstract Comics, 2009. -AND-  “This is a Ghost.” Ghost Comics, 2009.

“This is a Ghost.” is one of Craghead’s best recent comics poems (or so I think of them). He uses a completely original approach to juxtaposition and composition of images, words, and fragments of both, to suggest meaning beyond what you see on the page. Ghost Comics is an anthology of, yes, Ghost comics. See another notable from the same volume: “The Offering,” by John Hankiewicz, when we get to H. We would have also mentioned Hob’s lovely “the Witness” in this volume, except he released it in minicomics form first, and it was on the 2009 Notables list.

Age: teen.

Note: lovely, but demanding reading.
