Time Out New York lists BIG QUESTIONS and PAYING FOR IT among the best of 2011

“Best (and worst) books of 2011” / Time Out New York / Matthew Love and Drew Toal / December 14, 2011

4 Big Questions by Anders Nilsen (Drawn and Quarterly)
The accumulation of writer and illustrator Nilsen’s comics adds up to one airy, heady modern fable, complete with cynical sparrows, mistaken gods and humans clueless to the complexities of the world unfolding before them. Its elegant lines make pondering the natural order of things feel like a necessity. Also, it’s quite funny.

3 Paying for It by Chester Brown (Drawn and Quarterly)
Brown’s unconventional graphic memoir recounts his sex life from the moment he stopped participating in normal relationships and started consorting with prostitutes. As the author debates the nature of love with his friends and coworkers, the reader is forced to admit that the whoremongering cartoonist makes some solid points.
