55 Best Comics of 2011

The most borrowed comics (or is that graphic novels?) of 2011.

In the January 2012 issue of The Believer, in the Sedaratives ‘monthly advice column’,   

Anonymous asks: “Are comic books really ‘graphic novels,’ or are they just comic books?” To which guest columnist Beth Littleford responds: “It’s all a matter of perspective… which basically comes down to whether or not you’ve ever had a girlfriend.”

No matter what your perspective, here is the list of the most popular ones of 2011 :
