Your 2016 Washington Post Best Of Comics List

Here. It's a pretty standard list -- and kind of retro in that only two of the 13 creators named are female. The Burns and the Feiffer haven't been appearing on lists I've seen so far. I'm glad to see the Tom Gauld and the Sonny Liew as well.

image* The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye, Sonny Liew (Pantheon)
* Cousin Joseph, Jules Feiffer (Liveright)
* Ghosts, Raina Telgemeier (Graphix)
* Hot Dog Taste Test, Lisa Hanawalt (Drawn and Quarterly)
* Last Look, Charles Burns (Pantheon)
* March: Book Three, John Lewis And Andrew Aydin And Nate Powell (Top Shelf)
* Mooncop, Tom Gauld (Drawn and Quarterly)
* Patience, Daniel Clowes (Fantagraphics)
* Rosalie Lightning, Tom Hart (St. Martin's)
* Sheriff of Babylon Volume Two: Pow Pow Pow, Tom King And Mitch Gerads (Vertigo)

Like most lists, the books are spread out among several publishers, eight in this list's case. I'm not sure if that makes sense or doesnt; I go both ways.
