Copper is an absolutely absurd and downright delightful comic collection. The stories have a wide range of themes and tones. Fred is now one of my all-time favorite comic characters with his insecurities, worries, and tendency toward existential crises. The artwork is exquisite and I particularly enjoyed Kibuishi's use of color, matching the palettes to the tone. I'm sure students will enjoy the interview with the author at the end where he describes his process with plenty of pictures to inspire and advise those who want to make their own comics.
