100 Comics Positives For 2013 -- Rising Star Brandon Graham

image

Becoming a cartoonist of note with one foot in the independent comics world and the other in the mainstream comics world may be the most difficult trick to pull off, but Brandon Graham has come as close as anyone has in the last 15 years. Graham's team-executed Prophet continues to be one of the best big-publisher comics going, and his own work continues to develop in idiosyncratic, increasingly lovely directions -- his art book from PictureBox was one of the slightly-below-the-radar pleasures of the late Summer/early Fall. I stole the above from this photo-driven travelogue by Robin McConnell; Graham is one of the few people where I know people that made an effort this year to go to one of his appearances just to meet him.
