š! 26 dADa


Author: Various
Cover Artist: Zane Zlemeša
Publisher: kuš!

Imagine: there are some people in the United States who haven’t yet heard of kuš! (Latvian onomatopoeia for “stay silent,” pronounced koosh!) comics, even though it’s been around a full decade, having published nearly 30 issues to date. This issue includes 21 contributors, from its native Baltic communities as well as Portugal, Spain, France, Russia, Angola, South Korea, and points beyond. And true to its Dada theme – honoring the centenary of the anarchic art movement – it’s also the most graphically experimental and challenging of all the anthology nominees.
