The Best Comics of 2021

Another year over, so let’s take a quick look at the comics that particularly impressed me this year, in no particular order.

Tongues #4 by Anders Brekhus Nilsen

The Waiting by Keum Suk Gendry-Kim

Night Bus by Zuo Ma

Naken edited by… er… it doesn’t say. On Blokk.

Discipline by Dash Shaw

O bli hos meg by Lene Ask

The Thud by Mikaël Ross

Nobody Likes You, Greta Grump by Cathy Malkasian

A Journal of My Father by Jiro Taniguchi

Girl in the World by Caroline Cash

Rebecca & Lucie in the Case of the Missing Neighbor by Pascal Girard

Naturinstruksjoner by Sunniva Sunde Krogseth

Unsmooth 2: Bum by E. S. Glenn

Red Rock Baby Candy by Shira Spector

And that’s it. I read tons and tons of comics this year (almost certainly literally), but very little from small presses — so almost all of my choices this year are bigger books instead of pamphlets. I’ve gotta fix that next year.

And these were the best older comics I read this year:

Tuberculosis 2020 by Rikki Villadsen

Seasonal Shift by Lala Albert
