________________________________________________________________________

And hello again! Welcome to my Top List featuring the best print comics in 2014. First, we’ll start off with the honorable mentions. These books were awesome, but didn’t quite have what it took to make the main list. The honorable mentions are in alphabetical order below. (I’m not including write-ups since these are only my honorable mentions. If you’d like to chat about ’em or know more details about my thought process while compiling this list, please send me an e-mail or leave a comment! I WILL be doing write-ups for my Top 24 or 2014, which will be posted soon.)
