As the year comes to a close, the world's newspapers, magazines, blogs, and radio stations round-up their choices for the year's best books. While we're undoubtedly proud of the books we publish year after year, we're always excited to see our hard work honored in such high-profile publications. 

Congratulations to all of our year's authors, and to Tom Gauld, Brecht Evens, Michael Deforge, Nick Drnaso, Anouk Ricard, Ben Katchor, Lisa Hanawalt, Lynda Barry, Brian Chippendale, Sarah Glidden, Julie Doucet, Chester Brown, and the late Shigeru Mizuki for dominating the lists below!
