Your Unforgettable Graphic Novels Of 2013


The on-line magazine institution Salon has posted one of those multiple-hit slideshows featuring "unforgettable" graphic novels of 2013. I have proven them wrong by having to go back and look at the list a couple of times to make the following:

* Boxers & Saints, Gene Luen Yang (First Second)
* Calling Dr. Laura, Nicole J. Georges (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
* Encyclopedia of Early Earth, Isabel Greenberg (Bond Street Books)
* How To Fake A Moon Landing, Darryl Cunningham (Abrams)
* Opera Adaptations, P. Craig Russell (NBM)
* RASL, Jeff Smith (Cartoon Books)
* The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, H.P. Lovecraft and I.N.J. Culbard (Abrams)
* The Freddie Stories, Lynda Barry (D+Q)
* The Property, Rutu Modan (D+Q)
* When David Lost His Voice, Judith Vanistendael (Abrams)

The writer Laura Miller makes a very strong case for the Greenberg.
