2011 has, as I’ve said before, been a very odd year for comics – One that saw DC Comics change their game up with apparently successful results, the rise of digital comics (with all the nervousness and uncertainty that that entailed) and Marvel go through what feels more and more like a modern-day version of the DC Implosion of yore. But, most importantly, it’s been a year full of really, really good comics, no matter your tastes. I’ve written about some favorites elsewhere, but I’m curious: What comics have been your favorites of the year – and which ones do you think have been unfairly overlooked?
I’ll offer a suggestion for the latter: I’ve been loving IDW’s Dungeons and Dragons all year – I think it’s one of the most-well-written team books available, with John Rogers continually coming up with smart, funny dialogue and well-paced plots. I’m always kind of surprised that more people aren’t talking about it. But what do you think? What 2011 books should’ve been talked about more, and why?
