Every year there are those comics that, for whatever reason, don’t get their just due. Perhaps it’s the subject matter. Perhaps it’s because the book seems to be targeted at a niche audience. Perhaps it got buried under a ton of other releases. Perhaps it’s just dumb, bad luck. Whatever the reason, a book or comic that otherwise deserves acclaim receives little attention at all.
This week I’m going to try to rectify that. Each day I’ll be looking at what I feel were five criminally ignored or little regarded books. They weren’t necessarily titles that would have made it to my year-end “best of” list. Just works that I felt for whatever reason didn’t get their fair shake, either saleswise or in the press.
