You Who Read Me With Passion Now Must Forever Be My Friends by Dorothy Iannone, $45. 320 pages, softcover. Published by Siglio
Any new publication of Iannone's work should be a landmark event in the comics world. Iannone is one of the most important artists to make stories through picture making, but she is rarely spoken of within the 'comics' community. I've long felt that for every article about Jack Kirby in comics publications, there should be six about Iannone. That day may never come, BUT Iannone's work is being published with care and dignity outside of the comics world. This book collects the bulk of Iannone's most iconic narrative books, particularly her signature story An Icelandic Saga.
