2019 was a strange yet a strong year for comics. In the past 12 months of 2019, there were some of the best Indie titles released. However, the output of some of the mainstream outfits, such as DC, Marvel, as well as Image, can be well described as average with just one or two high points. If truth be told, the best work in the medium last year didn’t really come from the publishers with the glossiest names. So, to ensure that you didn’t miss the best of the year, we have come up with our best picks of the year. You can use this as your guide to ensure that you don’t miss any of the stellar comics of 2019. Now, let’s get started and take a look at the 4 best comics of 2019.
Publisher – Drawn & Quarterly
Maira, who works with a platform where you can pay someone to write a paper, says that The River At Night is a reworked compilation of the material which first appeared in the much-hyped and well-acclaimed series, that is, Kevin Huizenga’s Ganges. This book again is a masterpiece where you’ll see a heartfelt sincerity and an inquisitiveness to interact with the people and the world around us. Further, it is an accurate depiction of phantasmagorical insomnia and the weird thoughts that it invokes in the people afflicted. Additionally, the comic has multiple moments that will seem recognizable to anyone who has ever had a sleepless night. It is witty, beautiful, and intelligent, all at once. I believe, if the book gets the recognition it deserves, it will surely make Kevin a household name.
Publisher – First Second Books
This book by Mariko Tamaki is a touching yet fun take on high school relationships. However, despite the title, it not just revolves around romantic relationships, but rather uncovers the relief of overcoming the toxic influences in life. Brian, who offers online assignment help services, says that the biggest winner of this YA graphic novel is certainly Rosemary Valero-O’Connell’s art. Tamaki’s work is achingly beautiful. The color palette and the variation in the depiction are outright beautiful. Moreover, it is lifelike, and the performances by every character in the book are outstanding, The nervous “me” from the title, Freddy, to Laura, and the other supporting cast is brilliant in every way. It is one helluva romantic story that you have always yearned for.
Publisher – Drawn & Quarterly
Kiara, who offers online assignment help Sydney, says that if there’s one book that’s in sync with the world today, then it is The Hard Tomorrow by Eleanor Davis’. The book is heart-breaking and ambitious all the way, where the author writes with the hope of a better world. It revolves around a political activist and a caregiver. In the book, you’ll find instances where you can see how blurry the line is between the political and the personal events is, and how this thin line puts all the relationships at a risk. Honestly, it is an emotionally draining book yet one of the kindest books I have read so far. The best thing about The Hard Tomorrow is that it is a much-needed break from the earlier work by Eleanor. For me, it is the book of the year and for all the right reasons.
Publisher – Fantagraphics Books
Just as we discussed above, if ‘Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me’ is the perfect book for our hidden high schooler, ‘Is This How You See Me?’, is the book from the age spectrum’s entirely opposite end. This book by Jaime Hernandez puts forth the story of Hopey and Maggie, who decide on revisiting their youth. So, from the middle age, they go back to the young days by attending a punk reunion show. Amidst the show, they realize how much has changed, and yet there are a few things that never change. After reading this book, it is pretty clear that Jaime’s work has matured to sensitivity and subtlety that the book is well able to hit you with the nostalgia of lost youth and leave you with a melancholic smile on the face. Lily, who offers the best online digital marketing courses online, says that for her, Jaime has always been the number 1 living cartoonist, and after reading the book, her thoughts for him have not changed even one bit.
