Comics Reporter on Little Nothings: straight to the top of the pile

Lewis Trondheim’s newest entry in his comics blog collection of Little Nothings (vol.3: Uneasy Happiness) gets these words from Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Reporter:

“It’s one of the few series that vaults to the head of the reading pile whenever it shows up in the mailbox. For whatever reason, Trondheim’s diary comics play to a number of things I nearly always find enjoyable in comics: an acerbic and idiosyncratic world view, pretty pictures, frequent gags, places I’ve never visited, comics industry backstage anecdotes made real. It’s smart and well-executed, and I always laugh despite myself at least once — in this volume it was the punchline to the strip about how cool it might be to be a caveman.
We don’t really have anything else like this comic right now, not in North America, not someone this talented working this particular territory with such reliable clarity.”

Now, if only he would review our other books… mumblmumbl.
