Comic Booked’s Best of 2013

Julien Loeper 12/28/2013 Features

With this being my first year at Comic Booked, I was very proud to participate and work with everybody on putting this year end list together. Essentially, these are the staff picks for best books, writers, and artists of 2013. The decision by only allowing five choices on to the year end list was so that it would force us to weigh our options more carefully and to truly think about what were the best things in 2013. We were all forced to leave a lot off of these lists so these truly are our favorites/the best. These lists are organized according to each staff member. Now that the year is (almost) over, let us be your arbiters of taste and your guide through swathing paths of garbage to get to the truly great stuff. Here’s to the best of 2013.
