Great Comics of 2012

Students! Fellow travelers! If you’re searching for a guide to the most acclaimed comics and graphic books of 2012, you could do worse than going to The Comics Reporter and checking out Tom Spurgeon’s list of lists, which he posted back on 26th January:

From amazon to Publishers Weekly to The Village Voice, and scads of individual bloggers and critics too, Spurgeon covers the bases. Indispensable!

Spurgeon has also reported, as of today, on the just-announced nominees for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Graphic Novels/Comics:
