One of our Gosh! Best of 2019 titles! We normally shy away from including strip collections in this list. Problem is, this collection of the first nine months of Olivia JaimesÃÂ take on the classic Ernie Bushmiller character is just SO DAMN GOOD. Not only are they funny, wry, contemporary gag strips, but they also play with the form in a way that is simply astounding given the .limitations of the format. Whip-smart comics that arenÃÂt afraid to get a post-modern if the situation (or sometimes seemingly the deadline) demands it. Jaimes has crafted not only one of our favourite comics of the year, but quite possibly one of the best syndicated strips since Calvin & Hobbes ended.
