YES, IT’S THAT TIME. With the soothing scents of Thanksgiving nearly here, Comic Riffs pauses to reflect on the comics comfort food that has sustained us all year.
The comic strips and webcomics, graphic narratives and animated films of 2011 have provided a creative cornucopia for eager readers and viewers. So between now and Turkey Day (or Tryptophan Day, if you prefer), ‘Riffs will issue calls for your nominations.
Today, we begin with webcomics. In 2011, such perennials as “xkcd” and the commentary-enhanced “Pibgorn” proved as popular as ever; the history-laced “Hark! A Vagrant” and the graphical charts of “The Oatmeal” gained new fans as well as new books; “Girl Genius”
repeated at the Hugo Awards; and the guys at “Penny Arcade” and “PvP” teamed for the new comic “The Trenches.”
So now we turn the stage over to you to ask: What are your nominations for your Favorite Webcomics of 2011? Feel free to e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org or share them in the Comments field below.
Based on your nominations, Comic Riffs will cull the finalists through December, then conduct reader polls in January in the various comics categories.
So now, without further to-do, the floor is yours...
