This list is the second half of a personal cheat code. I read a lot of great non-superhero floppy comics in 2013, so many that I had a short list that was almost impossible to cull down to only 10. I put the horror ones in their own list, and these are the ones I thought were the best of the rest. My God, Comics--there's a ton of good stuff here. I had to make some hard decisions, which is definitely a good thing.
Now let's look at what I personally liked best from the world of non-horror, non-capes floppies in 2013:
10: Amala's Blade (Dark Horse Comics)
9: Amelia Cole (Monkeybrain)
8: Real West (Monkeybrain)
7: Adventure Time (Boom! Studios)
6: Lazarus (Image Comics)
5: Magic Whistle (Alternative Comics)
4: Judge Dredd (IDW)
3: Star Trek Countdown to Darkness (IDW)
If you weren't all that keen on the new Star Trek movie (I wasn't), don't let that hold you back from trying out this four issue mini-series, which came out just before the movie did, and set up my expectations to a level that the movie couldn't match. A cocky Captain Kirk runs smack dab into a situation that can't be solved by bluster and bold moves, and reveals that the Federation in this version of the Trek Universe isn't as good as the one we saw on television. Mike Johnson worked with Roberto Orci on the story, and David Messini handles the art, which is capable but didn't bowl me over. Trek fans looking for better than what we got on the tarnished silver screen should give this a look.
2: Bandette (Monkeybrain)
1: Doctor Who Prisoner of Time (IDW)
Honorable Mentions: Pretty Deadly (Image Comics), Saga (Image Comics), Skullkickers (Image) and Think Tank (Image Comics)
