Hat tip to Comics Reporter and Dick Hyacinthâ€™s thorough-and-enjoyably-crusty blog:
Itâ€™s the end of the year, and top ten lists are in fashion! One such list, from comic creator Bram Meehan (Raised by Squirrels) includes two digital entries: R. Stevensâ€™ Diesel Sweeties and Kate Beatonâ€™s livejournal site, Hark! A Vagrant. Two out of ten ainâ€™t bad!
Shannon Smith, whose blog file under other â€œis dedicated to the study of and critical discourse on minicomics, alternative comics, underground comics and any other type of comic which you might consider to be â€˜otherâ€™â€, posits that the Best of 2008 includes American Elf, Anders Loves Maria, Demons of Sherwood, Paper Pusher, and the works of Dustin Harbin. Ms. Smith runs a very engrossing blog, one that Iâ€™ll likely visit more often in the future.
Finally, Achewood: The Great Outdoor Fight made Publisherâ€™s Weekly Best Comics of The Year.
