Top 10 Comics for 2012
10) Mega Man: The best youth oriented comic out there and might be one of the smartest superhero comics being produced.
9) Princeless: Great Characters + Trope Subversion + A Masterfully done Plot = Yes Please
The Li'l Depressed Boy: The ultimate underdog you can't help but root for.
7) Chew: Solid from Issue #1, but the last arc has finally gotten me to count down the days for the next issue, again.
6) Invincible: For my 22 cents, this IS the best written Superhero comic out there.
5) Conan The Barbarian: For being a storyline that's been done before, Wood is making it feel quite fresh, which says a lot about Wood.
4) The Massive: Speaking of Brian Wood, it's due to his writing that the Massive is probably Dark Horse's signature title from a creative standpoint. Image has been getting the lion share of the praise for its' commitment to sophisticated comics, but if The Massive is a sample of what to expect, 2013 might see Dark Horse give Image a run for its' money.
3) The Unwritten: This could be one of the greatest comics of all time by the time the final issue is on the stands
2) American Vampire: Forget AvX, The Blacklist was the storyline of the year.
1) Saga (This has a GREAT Chance of surpassing Fables as THE top of the pile book): WOW! This has been as perfect of a start to a story as I've seen in the Past 5 years. It's only been 8 issues, but the world feels deep, the plot is multi-layered and each focus character feels full realized. This is what comics should be.11 That almost made it
