It looks like those lists are going to start dropping (or already have.) They will almost certainly make me hang my head and shed bitter tears for many a talented cartoonist as well as other excellent publishers. Here's hoping that all the lists don't suffer from a botched even-handedness or lazy Amazon search. This has been an amazing year for comics.

Why, here is a handy list of all the books (twenty eight) that D+Q published this year. A quick count and I come up with ten original graphic novels, three gekiga reprints, seven classic strip reprints, and six translated works.
