Best Of 2010: Best Ongoing Series

Jordamus Prime 01/01/2011 Features, Reviews 1 Comment
Here at Comic Booked, we take our comics very seriously! 2010 has been an awesome year to be a comic book fan, but there has been so much going on that it’s hard to actually keep up with it all! That’s why we’re here to present you with our Best of 2010 Awards! Our writers selected what they considered to be the best releases of 2010 as Nominees, and after weeks of careful consideration and deliberation we’ve brought you our choices for the best of everything to do with comics that’s happened in the past year!
 
Here we have the Nominees for Best Ongoing Series of 2010-
 
Jordamus Prime Nominates- Batman & Robin
Grant Morrison’s take on this new younger dynamic duo is nothing short of brilliance. I almost hate saying it, because it borders on blasphemy to most fans, but I kind of wish Bruce Wayne WAS legitimately dead and that Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne could just be the only Batman and Robin. It might just be the fresh take on the character, but I feel like Dick Grayson has more than come into his own as the caped crusader this year. Even Damian, who started this year off as a brat in a wheelchair, has grown up considerably to earn his title as Robin. The series just keeps getting better and better with each issue; making it a must read for any fans of the Dark Knight.

Colin Bell Nominates- The Unwritten
For me it has to be The Unwritten, hands down – in 2010 Mike Carey and Peter Gross continued to expand the tapestry of what is becoming one of the most engrossing and thought-provoking reads in comics today.  Carey and Gross have held no prisoners as they defied convention and transcended genre to bring us comics as literature lessons, fairy tales as expletive-filled horror stories, and even a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-style issue that could easily have been a cheap gimmick but turned out to be a wonderfully dense and story-advancing read.  Ambitious, informative and thrilling, The Unwritten goes into 2011 as my favorite book.

Andy Kirby Nominates- Captain America
Unshaken this year, Captain America has continued to be a solid run as a hero in the world of superhero comics. Amongst, the 616 Captain America shines for its espionage as well as its political and social view of our world.

Nicole Sixx Nominates- Gotham City Sirens
Gotham City Sirens has been without a doubt my favorite Ongoing Series both this year, and the year prior. Whether it be following Harley home for the holidays, or seeing how good old Edward Nigma adjusts to his life as a reformed Villain turned Gumshoe, this series is always unique and entertaining. It also has great art and focuses on to ass-kicking antics of three of my favorite women of all-time. What’s not to love?

Skott Of Fables Nominates- Fables
This series has been going since 2002 and in 2010 reached its 100th issue. It’s been my favorite series since the first issue and I’ve had so much fun following these characters that 1) it doesn’t feel like it’s been going long enough to have 100 issues and 2) the characters are so compelling that I actually got emotional when Boy Blue died. If I had to pick just one book to collect it would be Fables without a doubt.
