I’ve long maintained that comics are the greatest Christmas present since there is a comic for everyone you know, even if they don’t know it yet. So, take a look at the list of titles below and see if there’s something out there for someone you know. Or maybe just pick up something for yourself, because there’s nothing wrong with that. We’ve assembled for you a list of some of the best comics collections that have been released this year, so let’s all find something to curl up with beside a nice fire.
See here below for our Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2018 for Comic Books and Graphic Novels.
Comics are an amazing media form, folks. And while usually they create a story through a blending of words and art, this is not always the case. In fact, Petals is a prime example of masterful storytelling through art alone.
The emotion that is conveyed through sequential art is both deep and heartfelt. It reminds me of silent films and how they had to take such pains to ensure the audience was hooked in, though this is decidedly more difficult due to the lack of motion to accentuate the feelings of the characters.
