Your PW Best Books 2017 Comics/GNs Sub-List


Here. No huge surprises, although the First Second book is a significant one. I might have guessed three of these plus the Gabrielle Bell and the Thi Bui if I had been forced to make a wager. This should be the start of a dominant run on these lists by Emil Ferris' My Favorite Thing Is Monsters and more power to that book and its author.

They are:

* Boundless, Jillian Tamaki (D+Q)
* My Favorite Thing Is Monsters Vol. 1, Emil Ferris (Fantagraphics)
* My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness, Nagata Kabi (Seven Seas)
* Sex Fantasy, Sophia Foster-Domino (Koyama)
* The Hunting Accident: A True Story of Crime and Poetry, David Carlson and Landis Blair (First Second)

Expect many more such lists in the days ahead, although maybe not from me. All the books I liked were weird reprints -- even more than usual.
