Shawn’s Best of 2011


The other guys have the  music and film covered for the year 2011. Dan had an interesting idea of listing the best song for each month of 2011. James had a crazy extensive list for the music of 2011 and Colin gave you the best films of 2011 which listed Drive, my favorite film of the year.

It’s been an amazing year for graphic novel and comic book releases, including one comic company that started from square one with all of their heroes and villains. The art field has a selection of indie artists every year that break into the blogosphere and start showing up everywhere it counts. My selection of books won’t be the most reliable because I can’t say I’ve read a shit ton of books that came out this year.  I’ve read more than what’s on the list, but if you want a comprehensive  list you should check out a professional book reader.
