I've read a load this year, not only graphic novels but collections of regular series, such as Chew, The Spirit and the collected BPRD Plague of Frogs Book 4
It's been a good year for graphic novels too. We have had the English edition of the latest in the fantastic Blacksad series
The Nao of Brown is rightly getting rave reviews from everyone and where and Mary Talbot's Dotter of Her Father's Eyes has been nominated in the Costa Book Awards
But it's her husband who gets my vote for book of the year with another in the Anthropomorphic Steampunk Adventure series, Grandville.
Bete Noire is brilliant - if Santa doesn't bring it for you, go get it in the sales!!
So that's my choices for the best of the bunch - what's your choice for the year?
