I wanted to try and collect the various best mystery, crime, thriller fiction lists that appear online. I will add to the post as I find them so check back. If you see a list let me know and I’ll add it.
-Gary Phillips picks his favorite crime and mystery graphic novels of the year.
-Crimefactory Magazine’s blog Day Labor has been running “The Best of Whatever” lists. These are mixed bag lists of things that were liked in 2010. There is a fair bit of 2010 published stuff mentioned though:
