The end of the year brings on all sorts of things; holidays, gifts, eggnog, and copious amounts of alcohol. It also brings about “best of” lists throughout the entire journalistic and review spectrum, and this column is no exception. It was a big year for comics, both the “big two” as well as indie titles at Image Comics as well as smaller publishers, both creator owned and licensed. Compared to years past, there are some reliable stalwarts which have appeared on previous “best of” annual lists as well as plenty of new additions. In fact, publishers which aren’t Marvel may be well represented this time around. The top ten list consists of the best ongoing titles, mini series, and/or graphic novels published this year, in alphabetical order.
So, without further ado, the best comic books of 2014!
As always, a hearty thank you to all of the subscribers, readers, and clickers of this column. It wouldn’t exist without you folks!
