It’s the time of year for recommendations and best of lists. These are my favorites and least favorites of the comic books I published reviews of in 2018. The rankings are averaged from my individual reviews, and if there are ties, then I decide from there.
In 2018, I reviewed 93 pieces of individual media. Quite a bit less than last year, but I also did a book review challenge, which took a bit of my review time and reading focus. For the most reviewed series, I reviewed 15 issues of Lumberjanes, and 12 issues each of Bombshells: United, Giant Days, Ms. Marvel, The Wicked + the Divine, and Wonder Woman.
Going forward, I’m going to try to be reading more of my to-read shelves and spending time catching up again at the books I’m behind on.

1. Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles by Mark Russell, Mike Feehan, Sean Parsons, Paul Mounts, and Dave Sharpe
Average rating: 5/5 stars
Anyone who’s asked me about comic books in 2018 and what they must-read has heard me rave about Snagglepuss. My partner brought home this book for me, and it’s the book I never thought would be one of the most relevant stories for 2018. Set during the McCarthy Cold War era, Snagglepuss covers incredible personal and political territory for a story about a pink lion who walks on two legs, wears suit jackets, and writes plays.

My Brother’s Husband Vol 2 by Gengoroh Tagame
Rating: 5/5 stars
#52Challenge: a book about travel
This is the continuing story of Yaichi, Kana, and Mike, on Mike’s trip to see Japan and meet his in-laws for the first time. I ended Volume 2 wishing for the sequel when Yaichi and Kana go to visit Mike in Canada, or even perhaps a Kana all-grown up story. This tale continues to warm my heart.
While Tagame’s mission continues to be about educating straight people on a path of acceptance and love for the queer people in their family, this volume was less 101, and we see characters evolve emotionally. Thus, I gave it five stars.
If you haven’t read the first volume, I highly suggest doing so before you continuing reading this review. Continue reading “My Brother’s Husband Vol 2 Manga Review”
