Staff Reviews


Sam Alden is one of the rising stars in comics right now, and his new book, It Never Happened Again, elegantly demonstrates why. Alden's ostensibly unrefined pencil sketches conceal an artistic genius generally reserved for epic full-color graphic endeavors. The rough lines provide a raw intimacy that beautifully captures the mood of the two stories contained in the book. Alden deftly relates the promise and pain of adolescence and young adulthood, while letting the reader linger in the silent moments. (Kim)

Description


Here are two exquisite stories set at different times in the author's life. In Ignatz Award nominated "Hawaii 1997," few words are spoken, but Sam Alden's imagery evokes the magic of a nighttime encounter at a Hawaiian resort. In "Anime" he explores the complicated dynamics of pop culture obsession. Alden is one of the brightest young talents working today.

Sam Alden was born in 1988 in Portland, Oregon. In 2013 he was an official guest at the BilBOLbul festival in Bologna, Italy, his comic Haunter was excerpted in Best American Comics 2013, and he is the recipient of the Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent. He now lives and works as an illustrator and cartoonist in Montreal.
