ALEC heads "Best of 2009" list at Comics Reporter... FAR ARDEN too!
April 4, 2010
Prominent industry journalist Tom Spurgeon (The Comics Reporter) has finally presented his picks for best comics of the year, with Eddie Campbell's landmark collection Alec: The Years Have Pants receiving the #1 spot for archival/reprint books. Also honored as one of the year's best was Far Arden, the rip-roaring Arctic adventure by Kevin Cannon.
Spurgeon singles out Alec as "extraordinary" and "life-affirming," pointing out that "Campbell's work reflects not just a life as lived but mirrors the process of understanding that life." He praises Far Arden, meanwhile, not only for its formal tricks but also for "its world-building and capacity for melancholy." Click here to read the whole list!
