Multiversity Comics has complied their best graphic novels of 2016. It's a tremendous selection of books featuring the third volume of John Lewis' MARCH series, How to Talk to Girls by the powerhouse trio of Neil Gaimen, Fabio Moon and Gabriel Bra, Longest Day of the Future from Brian Salvatore, GHOST the latest book from NYT best seller Raina Telgemeier and to my great surprise, THE RATTLER from Greg Hinkle and myself.
Being mentioned in the same breathe as any of these books would be enough to humble me but somehow THE RATTLER ended up on top of that list as their pick for best OGN of 2016. I came across the news via a Twitter badge on my phone. I took a quick glance at the article and went back to work, filing it away as a trick of my imagination. It was only later when it was forwarded to me again did allow myself to think, "Oh wait, this is a real thing."
I spend 90% of my time in a dark room, surrounded by masks, staring at a screen and mumbling to myself. It's extremely gratifying to know that my work is continuing to be discovered and appreciated. Many thanks to Leo Johnson and Multiversity Comics!
