Comic Crits, John Bonner

Comic Crits, John Bonner
Comic Crits are book reviews done by artist John Bonner in the form of one page comic strips.

The reviews are often (though certainly not always) of books in the science fiction or fantasy genres, such as Neal Stephenson’s Reamde (above top), and The year’s Best Science Fiction 28, edited by Gardner Dozois (above, bottom).

The reviews can be read either on Bonner’s Comic Crits blog, or on the site, which is where I encountered them.

On researching John Bonner, who I had assumed was an illustrator and cartoonist, I learned he is a painter. I’ll make his paintings the subject of a separate post.
