100 Comics Positives For 2013: Bill K. Published Ruppert & Mulot
Bill Kartalopoulos previewed his first release through Rebus Books -- Ruppert & Mulot's Barrel Of Monkeys -- back in late 2012, but the official debut wasn't until the 2013 calendar year. It's a shame it hasn't made more Best-Of lists, but I think that's the nature of such lists more than it is the quality of this work. A profoundly funny, occasionally nasty and formally audacious book, Barrel Of Monkeys is one I'll remember when many of the more well-heeled and respectable entries fade from memory. I hope Rebus publishes again, frequently and soon.
