Lemire and Kindt named in BOOKLIST's Best of Year!

March 20, 2008

Jeff Lemire's ESSEX COUNTY (VOL 2): GHOST STORIES and Matt Kindt's SUPER SPY made Booklist's TOP 10 GRAPHIC NOVEL LIST -- and Top Shelf was the only publisher with 2 books on the list too!

Here's what they had to say about both:

"Lemire handles line and space, and transitions between present and past, so lyrically and powerfully that this story of two hockey-playing brothers with differing talents and passions for the game is one of the great graphic novels." -- BOOKLIST

"Foiling the German atomic bomb project is the eventually revealed motor of this grimly atmospheric, elliptical, strategically colored espionage epic that rivals the power of the most complex and serious spy novels and films." -- BOOKLIST
