All Over Coffee (City Lights) by Paul Madonna: The comic strip All Over Coffee leaves some people cold, while it makes others curl their toes. While I could do without the elliptical, disembodied dialogue, the drawings are wonderful. And as packaged in this collection by City Lights, they can be downright beautiful. The solitary charm and mystery of San Francisco are somehow captured in Madonna's art; it's as if he's distilled the essence of hanging out alone in an apartment, contentedly watching the weather change outside, just happy to be here."
