Best of MTL 2014 cover

Jay, Jessica and Xavier rule the film/TV scene once more, and this is hardly surprising given Baruchel’s lead role in the universally loved all-star comedy This Is the End, our continuing fascination with Mad Men (co-starring Paré) as it reaches its inevitably bitter end and Mr. Dolan’s ever-prolific M.O. New to the art scene is Station 16, which rocketed to #1 in Best Gallery — no shocker given their super high profile and affiliation with the MURAL Festival, which beautified many a wall and alleyway downtown and in the Plateau. And we’re pleased to see the artist responsible for this issue’s cover, Whatisadam, make the Top 5 in Best Graffiti Artist. Good on ya.
