MY FAVORITE COMICS - Fear of Comics
Ah, Gilbert Hernandez, one of the madmen of comics! Nowhere is this epiteth more adequate than on this volume collecting diverse short-stories originally published on different magazines. I´m probably on the minority here but I tend to prefer Beto's work when he's off Palomar, so naturally this one comes off as a personal favorite out of his cannon. Besides, whenever I want to be reminded of what comics can do but often fail to, I just reach out to my worn-out copy of "Fear of Comics" and let good ol'boy Roy show me.
