1. Jaime Hernandez: The Education of Hopey Glass
2. Lynda Barry: What It Is
3. Dash Shaw: Bottomless Belly Button
4. Kramers Ergot 7
5. Jonathan Lethem, Karl Rusnak & Farel Dalrymple: Omega the Unknown
Review forthcoming one of these days.
6. Yuichi Yokoyama: Travel
Reviewed in that Times holiday piece too.
7. Lewis Trondheim: Little Nothings: The Curse of the Umbrella
8. Chris Onstad: The Great Outdoor Fight
9. Joann Sfar: The Rabbi's Cat 2
10. Scott McCloud: Zot! The Complete Black and White Collection

I also listed my favorite single issues of 2008 in the Daily Cross Hatch's roundup: Fight or Run: Shadow of the Chopper, All-Star Superman #10, Mome #12, Big Questions #11 and Omega the Unknown #10.
