Comics anthologies are generally a good thing, but in my personal preferences, I like ones that are on a tightly focused topic better than “here are a lot of great comics by great people!” That’s just me, you can like what you want,. Thus I was intrigued when I heard about the upcoming Subcultures: A Comics Anthology, which is being edited by Whit Taylor and published by Ninth Art Press. The above is a promo not a cover, but it’s a strong creative line-up to explore one of my favorite ideas: the many many groups that humans arrange themselves in based around shared interests. It’s also a reminder of a theory that I’ve come up with after years and years of studying different eddies of obsession. In fact, we’ll call it MacDonald’s Theorem: It’s not the material which creates the personality, but a certain type of personality that is drawn to the material. That’s why certain types of people like Star Trek: TNG and certain types like Star Trek: TOS. Magic the Gathering has gathered a certain type of can, while Swedish heavy metal has another.

Anyway, this anthology sounds interesting! The Ninth Art website has been running a few preview pages. Here’s one by Alex Robinson about comic-cons and one by Dave Ortega about pochos.

Subcultures is coming out this fall.

    Box Brown again? What subculture is this — offensive clowns who have $15,000 “Hobo” weddings? Such a select group.
