D&Q vol 3 is the best collection title now publishing in the States; this volume includes the powerful “Monsieur Jean”, 1999’s “Best Comic Album” at the French b-d awards, Angouleme. The win was clearly deserved.

Dirty Stories is Fantagraphic’s high-minded smut anthology; as such, it has a range of work, almost all of it ambitious, none of it so, um, stimulating as to make Larry Flynt express concern.
