Brandon’s favorites of 2009

Here are some of the books I enjoyed that were published in 2009. I’ve included Amazon referral links in case someone would like to buy them.

Scott Pilgrim Volume 5: Scott Pilgrim vs The Universe , Bryan Lee O’Malley, Oni Press
My love for this series just keeps growing. I’m eagerly waiting for the 6th and final volume next year and hopeful that the movie is good.

Naoki Urasawa’s 20th Century Boys, Vol. 1: Friends, Naoki Urasawa, Viz Media
Urasawa, creator of Monster, creates some of the best manga around. He also has Pluto out this year which I’ve been meaning to pick up.

Parker: The Hunter, Darwyn Cooke, IDW
Cooke branches out from Marvel and DC and turns out a noir thriller that is gorgeous.

The Eternal Smile: Three Stories, Gene Yang & Derek Kirk Kim, First Second
Two of my favorite creators together on a book about how fantasy transform’s people lives.
