In our afternoon reading: a look inside the new anthology from editors Ann and Jeff VanderMeer, an interview with Ryan Chapman, and more. We’ll be off tomorrow for the 4th.
Our favorite comics from this year spanned a host of narratives, from metafictional explorations of loss and belonging to ominous supernatural tales of terrifying forces at work. Some are formally inventive, while others make use of a lean storytelling approach to convey the narratives at their center. All of them opened our eyes to the tales being told, regardless of their nature.
