Publishers Weekly names its best comics of 2010

Batwoman: Elegy

On the heels of’s year-end list comes Publishers Weekly‘s rundown of the best comics of 2010. For those keeping track at home, Acme Novelty Library #20, Batwoman: Elegy and Xe’d Out are all two for two. Here’s the PW list:

Acme Novelty Library #20, by Chris Ware (Drawn and Quarterly)
AX: Alternative Manga, edited by Sean Michael Wilson and Mitsuhiru Asakawa (Top Shelf)
Batwoman: Elegy, by Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III (DC Comics)
Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites, by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson (Dark Horse)
Bodyworld, by Dash Shaw (Pantheon)
Duncan the Wonder Dog, by Adam Hines (AdHouse Books)
How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, by Sarah Glidden (Vertigo)
Weathercraft: A Frank Comic, by Jim Woodring (Fantagraphics)
X’ed Out, by Charles Burns (Pantheon)
Yummy: The Last Days of a Southside Shorty, by G. Neri and Randy DuBurke (Lee & Low)



Body World and Weathercraft are both excellent choices, but Goddamnit it’s too early for these things!

Interesting that PW is so intent on spreading and promoting DC’s immorality and attack on American values. I wonder if their pocket have been lined by monies from the Didio regime.

If Charles Burns stays true to his form from Black Hole, you should probably be more concerned over what X’ed Out is about, Terrax Nova. It would probably be more unnerving to your delicate sensibilities than the “superhero happens to be lesbian” of Batwoman.

You’re joking, right, Terrax Nova? Please tell me you’re joking.
