In the suburbs people rarely dreamed of striking out for happiness. It was all familiarity and endurance: security and safety were the reward of dullness. (Hanif Kureishi, from The Buddha of Suburbia)

Due to my year-long daily posts about artists, I fell behind on reviewing and even reading comics in 2014. I continued to read single issues, but it took me three weeks into January to finish all the collected editions and graphic novels I bought last year, and of course I didn’t review many of them. So instead of doing a detailed “best-of” post, which I enjoy doing, I’m just going to write about some comics I really liked this past year. Sound good? I know, why should you care? Well, you shouldn’t, but if that’s the case, feel free to skip this post!
