Comic Book Anthologies Offer Greater Variety and More Choices for Fans of Good Comic Book Stories.
An anthology is a type of comic book containing a range of stories from different creators, featuring different characters and situations. Anthology comic books serve many purposes. One is to collect works that are too short for standalone publication. In these types of anthology comics, the stories generally revolve around a single theme like outer-space, or tragic love or just about any subject you can think of. Comic book tiles like “Witching Hour”, “Ride: Southern Gothic” and “Love Stories to Die For” fall into this category.
Another type of anthology comic books are ones that have an array of artistic styles, themes and genres that cover a wide range of subjects and interests. Popular anthology titles of this kind include “Heavy Metal” and Dark Horse Presents, which combine serialized stories with standalone pieces, strip humor and sometimes prose and articles. The list of contributing writers and artists to these titles reads like a “Who’s Who” of comic book creators.
The last type of comic book anthology is the most popular, because each issue contains one chapter of two or more ongoing stories, usually with popular characters, writers and artists. These include comic book tiles like “A1” and “A+X”.
Whatever type of anthology comics you decide to purchase, you are guaranteed to get your money’s worth, since most contain little or no advertising. With so many different types to choose from you are sure to find an anthology comic that’s suited to you. Whether you like superheroes, science-fiction, horror or other less easily defined types of comic books, there is a comic book anthology designed with you in mind.
