For the next in our annual daily Best of the Year guest posts we turn to longtime stalwart of the Indy Brit comics publishing scene, Knockabout‘s Tony Bennett, for a quick look at what’s been floating his boat over the last few months:
FPI: Can you pick three comics/webcomics/graphic novels which you especially enjoyed over the last twelve months and tell us why you singled them out?
Tony: Habibi – a mature, intelligent, interesting and beautiful book by Craig Thompson.
Dante’s Inferno – pssibly Hunt Emerson’s best work, I love it and it’s a plug.
Krent Able’s Big Book Of Mischief – an upcoming star of comics, deserves a wider readership. Plug too.
FPI: Can you pick three TV shows and/or movies which you especially enjoyed over the last twelve months and tell us why you singled them out?
Tony: Moonrise Kingdom. Wonderfully shot, great acting, very funny, poignant.
FPI: What can we look forward to from you in 2013?
Tony: Nemo:Heart Of Ice by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill, The From Hell Companion by Eddie Campbell, The Hartlepool Monkey by Wilfred Lupano and Jérémie Moreau and also The Best Of Wonder Wart-Hog by Gilbert Shelton.
FPI: Anyone you think is a name we should be watching out for next year?
Tony: Krent Able
