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.
