A day after revealing its picks for the top mainstream and superhero comics of the year, The A.V. Club returns with a rundown of the 10 best graphic novels and art comics, led by Charles Forsman’s Celebrated Summer.
Once again, you can visit The A.V. Club for commentary on each of the selections.
Some of the concepts of these books sound pretty boring. What makes them “the best”?
2013 was another fantastic year for GN’s. Thanks for posting Kevin! Great list, not a boring one in the bunch!
How can Out of Skin be considered a graphic novel when it was a short story published only online and hardly adaptable for print (Kinsky is also available only in digital form, for what I know, but many of the Monekybrain books got a print release which changes things a little)?
Also, the distinction between mainstream and superhero and graphic novel made in the two A.V. Club lists is really weird and muddles the list in terms of content. Despite being a somewhat longer work and put out by a more literary-minded publisher it still is very much a serialized superhero/action-adventure comic.
Alin, I think Out of Skin is probably more of an “art comic” than a graphic novel, which is one half of the list’s title.
