“The best of.” Oh, really? The implied lie behind almost any collection advertised as “the best of” is that the curation is more than a highly subjective sampling. We know the game going in: “The best” sounds so much sexier than “quite eminent” or “highly notable.” Which makes “best of” sound rather like a come-on, as if to say: “Come on — get beneath this hardcover and feast your eyes on this superior body of work!” Yet in the new “Best American Comics 2014” — the latest release from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s anthology series-by-the-subject-matter — guest editor Scott McCloud has found several clever ways to infuse the brash advertising with honesty.

Azar Nafisi is an enthusiast. In the epilogue to her book, “The Republic of Imagination,” she states that she began her analysis (but, really, celebration) of American literature intending to write about 24 books. She ended up choosing three: “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” “Babbitt” and “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.” In these works by Mark Twain, Sinclair Lewis and Carson McCullers, she finds the essence of the American experience, filtered through narratives not about exceptionalism or fabulous success, but alienation, solitude and landscape.
