What is a comic book?

Vox has an article that is suppose to list the best comic books being created right now. The list seems to be limited to USA creations, which is surprising given how much Japanese manga has become a part of what we consume, when we consume comics.


Suppli isn’t there.

Silent Voice isn’t there.

There is an abundance of good material coming from Japan. I can not possibly list all of the great publishers.

But whatever you might think of as good, it isn’t on Vox’s list, unless it’s a mainstream USA-made hit.

Is this the best they could do?
