Very Casual on Two Best of the Year Lists

Posted on Nov 25, 2013 in Blog


Very Casual  — Michael DeForge’s collection of short stories, mini comics, online comics, anthology contributions, and curios — has been selected for two best of the year lists. The Globe and Mail has selected it as one of the 100 best books of 2013, and The Washington Post has named it one of the top 10 graphic novels.

“The author’s first book, Very Casual is a collection of restive, peculiar tales that squirm as you read them like germs under a microscope, or like weird teens in love.” — Sean Rogers, “The Globe Books 100: “Best Comics,” The Globe and Mail

“This rising, Ignatz-winning star is already a master at making arresting images with clever narrative depth. He’s a one-man theater of the absurd, the enchanting and the grotesque.” — Michael Cavna, “Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2013,” The Washington Post
