The second-last day of the year is arguably a decent time to look back at the top Typo-Graphical posts for 2012. Everyone else is doing it! In short, 2012 was all about T-Files interviews and graphic novel reviews:
#1 T-Files 036: Aaron De La Cruz
The most-visited post from 2012 was this interview with super-talented and commendably hard-working SF-based artist Aaron De La Cruz.
#2 Ballad of the Salt Sea
This review of the classic Hugo Pratt classic graphic novel Corto Maltese: The Ballad of the Salt Sea republished by Universe, which tells a tale of life in the Pacific during WWI came in second-place, traffic-wise.
#3 T-Files 037: Sam Rodriguez
This interview with another talented NorCal artist, Oakland’s own Samuel Rodriguez came in third place. I met Sam through Aaron De La Cruz, so that illustrates nicely how doing this blog tends to pay off in unexpected and enjoyable ways.
#4 The Carmine Vault
The Carmine Vault is a nice, big hardcover graphic novel from French street art phenom Fafi, fresh from Rizzoli this year. There’s no better way to meet the Fafinettes.
#5 T-Files 038: ABCNT
This more recent interview with Angeleno wheat paste wizard ABCNT rounds out the top 5 Typo posts for 2012 really nicely.
