In comics, I’ve also enjoyed book 3 and 4 of Brian K. Vaughan’s „Saga“ space opera [Link], Year 1 and (to a lesser degree) Year 2 of Tim Taylor’s „Injustice: Gods among us“ [Link], Bryan Q. Miller’s still solid „Smallville“ [Link], the Marvel books „She-Hulk“ [Charles Soule, Link] and „Hawkeye“ [Matt Fraction, Link].

I enjoyed the first six „New 52“ DC comic books featuring Wonder Woman [Link] and started reading lesser-known series like „Promethea“ [Link], „Nailbiter“ [Link], „Rat Queens“ [Link], „Mind MGMT“ [Link] and „The Private Eye“ [Link]. I’ve also enjoyed Daniel Clowes‘ „David Boring“ [Link].

Mark Millar’s „Jupiter’s Legacy“ had a great start – but I will have to wait until 2015. [Link]

Here’s a big collage of the graphic novels I’ve discovered in 2014:
