Best American Comics: The Notable Comics of 2014

Many of you know that up until last year Jessica and Matt were series editors of the Best American Comics series at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. When they moved to France at the end of 2012, they handed the reins over to the most capable and devoted person they could think of: curator, publisher, and critic Bill Kartalopoulos. The first volume under his watch has just come out with guest editor Scott McCloud (Jessica and Matt were jealous not to get a chance to work on this one!) and it’s getting fantastic reviews.


Bill has decided to keep up a tradition we started which is to list online and link to as many of the “notable comics” as possible. These are the hundred or so books, stories, strips, or webcomics that we series editors preselected but which didn’t make it into the final cut. You are guaranteed to find a treasure trove of comics every bit as rich as what you’ll find in the table of contents in this section of the book.

Check out the full list of Notable Comics of 2014 here.

And congratulations to Bill and Scott!
