2016 Comics that Scott Will Still Be Thinking About in 2017

For the past few weeks, I've been staring at this list of comics.  I don't know if these are the best comics of 2016 or even my favorite comics of the year but these are all of the books that really struck me and that I've kept on coming back to as I've tried to figure out what 2016 meant to me when it comes to comics.

I've written about quite a few of these comics over the past year but not all of them either here or over at Newsarama.  For the books that I have written about, I've included a link to the review.

And in no particular order, here are the books of the past year that made a huge impression on me.
