"Cartoonist Matthew Thurber, whose previous books include 1-800-MICE (2011) and INFOMANIACS (2014), takes on the art world in his latest book Art Comic, a series of interrelated stories about the trials and tribulations of would-be artists. The majority of the stories follow art students and recent graduates through their internships, art critiques, and first jobs at galleries and as artists’ assistants. Thurber maintains a satirical tone throughout the stories, both mocking and embracing assumptions about the ostentatious, elitist, out-of-touch nature of art school and the art market."
