Excerpted from an article by “PGHHead” at BC Refugees
DISCLAIMER: This is not an attempt to categorize the “best” of 2011. I’m not qualified to make that judgment since I have only read a very small percentage of what was published in 2011. Rather, these are personal recommendations – - those books of 2011 that are my absolute favorites and ones that I highly recommend to anyone interested in good comics reading/viewing.
As in my PGHHEAD PICKS for 2010, I used the same guideline / rules:
1) It has to be something that I wrote about on BC REFUGEES blog site. That narrows the field, as I read more titles than I wrote about. But, at least if I took the time to write about a book then something merited the extra attention.
3) Rather than select books to fit into pre-determined categories, this is only a list of books worthy of attention. I am using categories, but mainly to help identify them further and add a little organization to this list. I’ve also added the month (in captions) in which I wrote the original review in case anyone wants to go back into the BC REFUGEES ARCHIVES and read more about each title.
