The Best Graphic Novels Ever #13 -- Blankets

13. Blankets
by Craig Thompson
Published by Top Shelf Productions

Let's get back to the countdown after our little New Year's break. Up next is Craig Thompson's Blankets.

What can I say about this true graphic novel (perhaps the truest form of the format on this list) that hasn't already been said by Publisher's Weekly, Entertainment Weekly, Time, or the New York Times Book Review? Well, not much to be honest, but I will say this: Blankets is perhaps my favorite "biographical," slice of life comic book ever. Period.

Charming. Nostalgic. Beautiful. That's what it is.
