Your AV Club Best Art- And Alt-Comics Works Of 2013


Here. It's a largely idiosyncratic list even though not stridently so, and thus much appreciated on that level at least. The #1 and #9 choice are two I haven't seen on any other lists thus far.

Their choices are:
10. Out Of Skin, Emily Carroll (Self-published)
9. Kinski, Gabriel Hardman (Monkeybrain)
8. Julio's Day, Gilbert Hernandez (Fantagraphics)
7. Little Tommy Lost: Book One, Cole Closser (Koyama)
6. Over The Wall, Peter Wartman (Uncivilized)
5. Battling Boy, Paul Pope (First Second)
4. The Encyclopedia Of Early Earth, Isabel Greenberg (Little, Brown and Company)
3. Boxers and Saints, Gene Luen Yang (First Second)
2. The Property, Rutu Modan (Drawn And Quarterly)
1. Celebrated Summer, Chuck Forsman (Fantagraphics)

Those picking were Jason Heller, Oliver Sava and Matt D. Wilson.
