And what a way to celebrate! Get a glimpse of the 2011 crop—the quality is dizzying across the list. Have a peek at these covers!

And the line-up! Nick Bertozzi, Ben Hatke, Jim Ottaviani, Leland Myrick, Gene Yang, Thien Pham, Vera Brosgol, Carla Jablonski, Leland Purvis, George O'Connor, Dave Roman, Sara Varon, Derek Kirk Kim, Stan Nicholls, Joe Flood, MK Reed, Jonathan Hill, Glenn Eichler, Joe Infurnari, Amir & Khalil—

It's too much! My little heart cannot bear so much brilliance heaped upon genius!

Oh, and there's our Nursery Rhymes book in the mix! By 50 of the world's most beloved cartoonists, including Roz Chast, Jaime Hernandez, Richard Thompson, Mike Mignola, and the list goes on and on. Can you stand this much mouth-watering excellence in one short blog post?

Well, 2009 and a painful recession taught us humility, but now it's time for hubris and arrogance again. What, with a year of offerings like these?

Seriously, though: presenting you with First Second's 2011 offerings, this year of our fifth anniversary—is making us all incredibly proud and happy. Please share this with everyone you know?
