In this last episode of 2013 we count down our favorite comics of the year. On a methodological note, we limited ourselves to book-length works that felt like complete statements.

We also discussed the Sequential Artists Workshop’s end-of-year fundraiser. There are still 28 days left—consider pitching in to help fund this awesome school!

5. Ambedkar: The Fight for Justice by Srividya NatarajanS. AnandDurgabai Vyam, and Subhash Vyam

4. Sammy the Mouse Vol. 2 by Zak Sally

3. My Dirty Dumb Eyes by Lisa Hanawalt 

2. Red Handed: The Fine Art of Strange Crimes by Matt Kindt

Alex’s Top Five:

4. New School by Dash Shaw

3. Out of Hollow Water by Anna Bongiovanni

2. Pompeii by Frank Santoro

We said we’d post links to a bunch of our favorite minis and floppies here, but man, that’s hard to sort through. Hopefully we’ll do that soon.

Thanks for listening, everyone. 2013 was a great year in comics—see you early in 2014!
