One of our Gosh! Best of 2018 titles! Hartley Lin has been quietly working away at his series Pope Hats (under the anagram pen name Ethan Rilly) for around a decade now, crafting one of the finest slice-of-life comics on the shelves. It's the tale of aspiring law clerk Frances Scarland and her alcoholic actress roommate Vickie as they navigate the ups and downs of their personal and professional lives in Toronto. Lin's clear, uncluttered storytelling works in service of a character piece that is completely absorbing in its mundanity and unparalleled in its relatable human warmth.
