2013 has been an exceptional year for Michael DeForge punctuated by an Eisner nomination and a sweep at the Ignatz Awards where he won all three of the categories he was nominated in. The ever prolific young cartoonist released two books with us this year Lose #5 and Very Casual. The latter has been selected by the editors of Amazon.com as one of the best books of the year.
