Of course, I’m happy about American Vampire’s inclusion here. And of course I think it should win. A historical vampire comic that equal parts erudition of words and brutally bestial violence with some of the best art of the entire year. This comic is sublime and is certainly above the competition.
I can see many wanting Morning Glories to take this one out. That could be good. But Marineman shocks me because there have only been a handful of issues.
