Orchid, edited by Dylan Williams and Ben Catmull. $8. 118 pages. Published by Sparkplug Comic Books
A legendary anthology, which caused quite a stir when it was published in 2002. Featuring early work by Kevin Huizenga, Gabrielle Bell, David Lasky and many more, all trying their hand at Victorian Horror comics. Huizenga and Lasky's contributions were instant classics, as Williams and Catmull articulated a specifically vibrant, mostly Bay Area scene that had congealed in the late 90s/early 00s. All killer, no filler in this one.
