by Whit Taylor
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.
