Heads or Tails
by Lilli Carré

The creator of 2008's acclaimed graphic novel The Lagoon — named to many annual critics' lists including Publishers Weekly and USA Today's Pop Candy — is back with a stunningly designed and packaged collection of some of the most poetic and confident short fiction being produced in comics today. These stories, created over a period of five years, touch on ideas of flip sides, choices, and extreme ambivalence.

Carré's elegant short stories read like the gothic, family narratives of Flannery O'Connor or Carson McCullers, but told visually. Poetic rhythms — a coin flip, a circling ferris wheel — are punctuated by elements of melancholy fantasy pushed forward by character-driven, naturalistic dialogue. The stories in Heads or Tails display a virtuosic breadth of visual styles and color palettes, each in perfect service of the story, and range from experimental one-pagers to short masterpieces like "The Thing About Madeline" (featured in The Best American Comics 2008), to graphic novellas like "The Carnival" (featured in David Sedaris' and Dave Eggers' 2010 Best American Nonrequired Reading, originally published in MOME), to new work created for this book.
