Halifax’s The Coast selects their “Best Books & Comics of 2009”: where’s the Maple?

Despite a misleading header (with O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim Vol. 5 and Lemire’s The Nobody shown among other works),  there’s not a single work by a Canadian on the list.

The list, selected by Rachelle Goguen and Carsten Knox, includes (follow the link above for the explanations):

ASTERIOS POLYP (Mazzuchelli)

BATMAN & ROBIN (Morrison & Quitely)

DAREDEVIL (Brubaker, Lark, et al.)

LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMAN: CENTURY – 1910 (Moore, O’Neill)

PLUTO: UROSAWA x TEZUKO (Urosawa)

POWER GIRL (Palmiotti, Gray & Conner)

I know, CB, me too! Nothing against the fine works that were selected. We’re just disappointed not to see any love for Canadian creators by yet another Canadian media outlet… :(
