I figured I’d give a whirl with the year-end tradition of listing things that I like and decided to list my 10 favorite comix of the past year. I include, comic books, trade paperbacks, zines, and graphic novels in my list. So here goes:
3. Atomic Robo
4. New Mutants
6. Gaylord Phoenix
7. Uncanny X-Force
8. Moving Pictures
9. Ex Machina
Yes, I have a bookend of Warren Ellis titles on my list. I am well aware that this was a good year for him, again. These books were the most engaging for me this year. Books like Green Lantern, Sweet Tooth, and Daytrippers, were good, but didn’t resonate with me as much. On the other hand, the Final Crisis tpb haunted me for a good three weeks, that was by far the most crushing story of the year. I also finally read Millar’s run on the Ultimate Avengers. If Whedon can translate that, then we’re in for a good flick!
I look forward to 2011 and Batwoman and Next Men making the list next year!
