Editorial Reviews

As stated in the "Introduction", be it positive or negative, our homes create us. This comic anthology presents itself as a way to reflect both joyfully and deeply on what home really means, and, more specifically, what home means in the province of Alberta. After finishing Alberta Comics Anthology: Home, I was left thinking about how I would represent and tell my story of living in Alberta for 30+ years--a compelling afterthought triggered by many of the simple visuals or grandiose plot lines that are contained in the pages. Again, don't let the locality of Alberta be a deterrent to picking up this anthology - I am convinced there is a little something for everyone in here!" - Lindsey Baird, Canadian Materials
