Every year since 2006, THE BEST AMERICAN COMICS selects and collects the best North American comics of the previous year in a beautiful, full-color, hardcover anthology that is seen widely in libraries and bookstores.

Many hundreds of comics are considered annually, and the final choices are made each year in a unique collaboration between the book’s regular Series Editor and a special Guest Editor who brings a new perspective to each edition.

The exhibitιοn, presented at the  Hellenic American Union’s Hadjikyriakos-Ghikas Gallery, spotlights selections from THE BEST AMERICAN COMICS 2016, featuring works by artists both well-known and obscure, mirroring the diversity and discovery that each volume in the series represents. Artists with works in this exhibition include Marc Bell, Richard McGuire, John Porcellino, Sophia Zdon, Lynda Barry, Nina Bunjevac, Liana Finck and Anne Emond. The exhibition is curated by THE BEST AMERICAN COMICS Series Editor, Bill Kartalopoulos.
