Another time Billy heard Rosewater say to a psychiatrist, “I think you guys are going to have to come up with a lot of wonderful new lies, or people just aren’t going to want to go on living.” (Kurt Vonnegut, from Slaughterhouse-5)

“At the end of the twentieth century, we are trying to separate inseparable strands, to divide this one from that one, because this one may be Macedonian and that one may be Bulgarian … Here the men sit back like the old men of Crete, talking about nationalism and hate while the women do all the work.” (Robert Kaplan, from Balkan Ghosts)

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)

Another poet compared his beloved’s upper-lip hairs to the feathers of a parrot feeding a pistachio to the beloved’s lips. To help me appreciate the richness of this poetic image, Diloram drew a picture of it in my notebook. It was terrifying. (Elif Batumen, from The Possessed)

This isn’t a best comics of 2014 list, but it’s something

EPSON MFP image

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!

Starman was anchored in “real time,” but even as it started to drift, we can still see some discernible dates for when things happen.
