For whatever reason, I’m really enjoying the “best of/favorite” lists from group blogs this year. Case in point: the round-up from the crew at Good Comics for Kids.
I may not agree with every choice (Life Sucks? Seriously?), but it’s a great cross-section of different kinds of books for different age groups. And maybe it’s just me, but I often find lists focused on a younger audience full of books that could just as easily populate a general “best of/favorites” list. But that might just be me.
And speaking of good comics for kids, I just got around to reading the second volume of Satoko Kiyuduki’s Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro (Yen Press). What an odd, sweet, gently unsettling little book this is. I think it may need some Flipped love in the near future.
