It’s the time of year for recommendations and best of lists. These are my favorites and least favorites of the comic books I published reviews of in 2018. The rankings are averaged from my individual reviews, and if there are ties, then I decide from there.

Going forward, I’m going to try to be reading more of my to-read shelves and spending time catching up again at the books I’m behind on.
