Go, Look: Michael Dooley's Designer-Driven Best Of 2016 For Print Magazine


Click through the image or here for the full list. Dooley uses a lot of art given Print's area of focus, so those area always fun articles to look at even if you're not engaged with the choices. The choices strike me as solid, though.

* Best Meta-Biography of a Fictional Southeast Asian Cartoonist: The Art Of Charlie Chan Hock Chye, Sonny Liew
* Best Meta-Biography of an Alcoholic Norwegian Artist: Munch, Steffen Kverneland
* Best Future Visions by a Drug-Addicted Norwegian Artist: Soft City, Hariton Pushwagner (pictured above)
* Best Dada Fotonovela by a Canadian Cartoonist: Carpet Sweeper Tales, Julie Doucet
* Best Satirical Depression Noir: Cousin Joseph, Jules Feiffer
* Best Intro to Independent European Comics Artists: Spanish Fever: Stories by the New Spanish Cartoonists, Santiago Garcia (Editor)

* Best Hybrid Media Profile of a Canadian Cartoonist: Seth's Dominion, Seth and Luc Chamberland
