The Anthropologists follows the author’s trip to Australia and subsequent reevaluation of her chosen field of study. Taylor’s expressive line work and analysis of the strange intersection of self as a person of color, a tourist and a scholar of Aboriginal culture make for an engrossing, thought-provoking read.
The Anthropologists is the second book in the Sparkplug Minis Series, a series of short-run (500 copies) mini comics by new and/or underappreciated artists.
“Taylor’s work is charming, but I like that she doesn’t try to romanticize anything. … (she) has a really strong sense of storytelling, as well. She lays out her pages with a keen eye for story. It’s really impressive.” — Brian Cronin, Comic Book Resources
