Your Comics-Related Offerings On The 2015 CBC Books List

image"Graphica" is a significant component of the CBC best-books list, recently released.
* Don't Get Eaten By Anything, Dakota McFadzean
* Drawn & Quarterly 25, Various
* First Year Healthy, Michael Deforge
* Killing and Dying, Adrian Tomine
* Moonshot, Various, Hope Nicholson (Editor)
* Russian Olive to Red King, Kathryn Immonen & Stuart Immonen
* Step Aside, Pops, Kate Beaton
* Subway Stations of the Cross, Ins Choi & Guno Park
* SuperMutant Magic Academy, Jillian Tamaki
* The Outside Circle, Patti LaBoucane-Benson & Kelly Mellings
If there's anything the lists have proven this year it's that 1) we're in a golden age of pretty good; lots of candidates and fewer and fewer laughable choices to fill out slots; 2) consensus is rare and fleeting. Even those books that show up on multiple lists seem to do so from a variety of perspectives -- making broad rather than making specific their reputation.
