Despite the proclamations of a few naysayers
, 2017—horrible in so many respects—was actually a particular rich and deep year in comics. In fact, our voting panel (the editors, advisory board, Inks
contributors, and the Comics Studies Board) ended up with well over 100 titles they loved this year. So instead of trying to find a way to determine "best" we settled on ranking our collective favorites
for the year.
The top 20 reflect overall votes (books multiple people had in their favorites of the year). We also have some more specialized "favorites" below.
Let us know over at the forum what your favorite was for the year! And let us know if you want to see the whole list of 100+ titles our voters loved in 2017.
