Soothing the Troublemakers by Siobhan Gallagher. $10, 32 pages, digest size, black and white and color.
Gallagher's comics feel like a notion of what modern day New Yorker cartoons could be. Every area in a drawing is packed with slogans, jokes and ideas to create a rich cartooning thought. I wish more cartoonists had the Will Elder pack rat quality in their tool case like Gallagher does. These comics need to be picked through by readers with the same care that they are assembled. Smart, fun stuff.
