Last year, Paste’s writers and editors did some soul searching and paid homage to the comics that inspired our career-long devotion to all things sequential art. As we approach Thanksgiving this Thursday, we asked a handful of creators about their favorite comics of all time. First up is Ethan Young, whose graphic novel Nanjing: The Burning City won Paste’s favorite comic of 2015. He followed that emotional sucker punch of historical fiction up with The Battles of Bridget Lee: Invasion of Farfall, a hard-nosed sci-fi opus that doubles as a retelling of the Mulan folktale. And don’t even get us started on A Piggy’s Tale, the enchanting adventures of a benevolent pooch based on a real-life service dog. With an oeuvre that seamlessly melds character, passion, emotion and action, Young’s unranked picks appropriately straddle intimate indie landmarks and fantasy gold in equal turn. Come back tomorrow when another creator will reveal their favorite comics of all time.
