1. It’s that time of year again for best of lists and gift guides. We decided to get into the swing of things at Koyama Press and present our own gift guide. We surveyed some of our cartoonists and asked them what Koyama Press title they thought made the best gift. Here is what they came back with (many couldn’t pick just one!):
Diego Bergia — Lose #5 by Michael DeForgeNathan Bulmer — The Big Team Society League Book of Answers by Team Society LeagueCole Closser — By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse JacobsAaron Costain — By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse Jacobs and Turtie Needs Work by Steve WolfhardMichael DeForge — Journal by Julie DelporteJulie Delporte — By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse JacobsMatthew Forsythe — By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse JacobsClayton Hanmer — Blobby Boys by Alex SchubertDustin Harbin — S.F. #3 by Ryan Cecil SmithJesse Jacobs — Journal by Julie Delporte, Wax Cross by Tin Can Forest and Lose #4 by Michael DeForgeKeith Jones — S.F. #3 by Ryan Cecil Smith and Blobby Boys by Alex SchubertJeremy Kai — By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse Jacobs and Baba Yaga and the Wolf by Tin Can ForestVictor Kerlow — The Big Team Society League Book of Answers by Team Society League and Turtie Needs Work by Steve WolfhardSeo Kim — Comics Class by Matthew ForsytheChris Kuzma — By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse JacobsPatrick Kyle — The Big Team Society League Book of Answers by Team Society LeagueGinette Lapalme — By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse JacobsAaron Leighton — The Big Team Society League Book of Answers by Team Society League, Wax Cross by Tin Can Forest and Rivers Forgotten by Jeremy KaiElisha Lim — Very Casual by Michael DeForge and Fata Morgana by Jon VermilyeaJane Mai — Turtie Needs Work by Steve WolfhardSteve Manale — Fata Morgana by Jon Vermilyea, Blobby Boys by Alex Schubert and Michael DeForge’s Lose seriesJohn Martz — Comics Class by Matthew Forsythe and Turtie Needs Work by Steve WolfhardRobin Nishio — Blobby Boys by Alex Schubert and anything by Michael DeForgeAlex Schubert — Turtie Needs Work by Steve WolfhardWalter Scott — The Infinite Wait and Other Stories by Julia WertzRyan Cecil Smith — Blobby Boys by Alex SchubertSean Wainsteim — Lose #5 by Michael DeForgeJulia Wertz — Rivers Forgotten by Jeremy Kai and By This Shall You Know Him by Jesse JacobsBritt Wilson — The Big Team Society League Book of Answers by Team Society LeagueSteve Wilson — Wax Cross by Tin Can Forest, Very Casual by Michael DeForge and Fata Morgana by Jon VermilyeaSteve Wolfhard — Baba Yaga and the Wolf  by Tin Can Forest, Michael DeForge’s Lose series, Comics Class by Matthew Forsythe, and Sunday in the Park with Boys by Jane MaiJon Vermilyea — Blobby Boys by Alex Schubert and Very Casual by Michael DeForge
