Here comes the last list, my look at the superhero comics I read in 2013. In some years, this list is a bit thin, but I actually had a very hard time narrowing it down to 10, with 5 honorable mentions. It's the first year that my short list was nearly as long as the one for minis and non-capes stuff, and some fun books (Larfleeze) lost out because there was just too many good examinations of the genre to sneak it on there.
That said, my idea of a great superhero comic doesn't look much like the mainstream. So what I thought were the best books I read in 2013 won't match most, I suspect. However, I really dug each and every one one of these, right down to the honorable mentions and I love that comics is so huge that I can have all these great books and someone who only wants to read the latest Justice League spinoff can have theirs, too.
Comics is a really large tent these days, even if some parts of that tent won't let the rest play in them. To which I say, "I'm sorry you feel that way. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be hanging out with those who do."
