CA Best of 2015: Cast Your Vote for Best Biographical Comic of 2015
2015 was an outstanding year for comics; a year of great books by amazing talents, both new and established. But what were the highlights? We’re asking you to pick the best comics, creators, and more in 2015.
This poll is your chance to vote for best biographical comic of 2015, a category that includes biographies, autobiographies, travelogues, and semi-autobiographical works. Whether personal stories or stories of real lives, these comics are often some of the most powerful and compelling uses of the form that you can hope to find.
The nominees for best biographical comic are Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven, by Brandon Easton and Denis Medri (Lion Forge); Ghetto Klown, by John Leguizamo, Christa Cassano, and Shamus Beyale (Harry N. Abrams); Michael Jordan: Bull on Parade, by Wilfred Santiago (Fantagraphics); Roots, byTara O'Connor (TaraO'Comics.com); Schmuck, by Seth Kushner, Dean Haspiel, Nick Bertozzi, Gregory Benton, Josh Neufeld and others (Alternative); and The Story of My Tits, by Jennifer Hayden (Top Shelf).
(Note: Because of its relationship and significance to a broader historical context, we've included March Book Two in the historical category rather than the biographical category.)
