In Comics:
The Best of 2009


Herewith, a quick jotting of some of the best graphic novels that hit the shelves in 2009:

  1. Asterios Polyp by David Mazzucchelli
  2. Stitches by David Small
  3. Footnotes in Gaza by Joe Sacco
  4. Waltz with Bashir: A Lebanon War Story by Ari Folman
  5. You Are There by Jacques Tardi and Jean-Claude Forest
  6. Humbug by Harvey Kurtzman, et al
  7. Veeps: Profiles in Insignificance by Bill Kelter and Wayne Shellabarger
  8. Low Moon by Jason
  9. Fables Vol. 1 (Deluxe Edition) by Bill Willingham
  10. The Beats ed. by Paul Buhle

My votes were part of the annual PW Comics Week Critic’s Poll, the results of which were published here — and Asterios Polyp won handily.
