    50. Punisher MAX (Marvel/MAX)
    Written by Jason Aaron
    Drawn by Steve Dillon

    PunisherMax continues to be one of the best books produced by Marvel every month. Jason Aaron has managed to tell one long , mega story ...broken into arcs so far. Even with delays , 2011 is the year the book finally started coming back out on time. -SUPERECWFAN1
    Jason Aaron continues what is perhaps the most audacious comic book series produced by Marvel with his continued adaptations of old school Marvel characters into the MAX universe. Seeing, say, Elektra and the Hand, adapted into the MAX universe allows for Aaron to take the story in unusual and exciting directions. Meanwhile, his examinations into Frank Castle’s soul (working off ideas introduced by Garth Ennis in his masterful epic run on Punisher MAX) are stunning as you see how it shifts your perceptions of the character dramatically. Plus, Steve Dillon is a great artist. -Brian Cronin

    49. Hellblazer (DC/Vertigo)
    Written by Peter Milligan
    Drawn by Giuseppe Camuncoli

    Each month I pick up Hellblazer I really sit back and think how much it really has gotten good since Peter Milligan has hit his stride on it. The wacky idea of marrying life long loner John Constantine seemed crazy at 1st , but now it has a weird feeling that it makes Constantine a more full character. -SUPERECWFAN1

    48. Power Girl Volume 2 (DC)
    Written by Judd Winick, Matthew Sturges
    Drawn by Sami Basri, Hendry Prasetya

    This is another book about emotion but it takes a broader approach, when it tries to be funny its funny, when it tries to be sad, is sad, it makes you care about all the different twists and is never borring. -ArnoldoAAD

    38. Habibi (Pantheon)
    Written and Drawn by Craig Thompson

    Emotionally moving and philosophically challenging. Forces you to think about what you're reading and how it relates to your own experience -maniacmatt
    Craig Thompson’s masterpiece takes all the obvious talents that Thompson showed in his work on Blankets and upped the ante even further with a more elaborate and more striking plot. In Habibi, we follow the lives of two slaves on the run and their lives both together and apart. This comic is a dark work, so if you want an upbeat comic book, this is not the book for you – but if you want a lush, evocative work with amazing artwork, well-developed characters, clever storytelling and heartfelt examinations of the power of love even in the worst of environments (and the dangers of love, as well, in driving you to do things you’d never think you’d do – either in its name or in your response to heartbreak), then this is the comic for you. -Brian Cronin

    36. I, Vampire (DC)
    Written by Joshua Hale Fialkov
    Drawn by Andrea Sorrentino

    something that has been lacking a lot on DC for years is romance and i think of I, Vampire as one, the very dark images of the art make work so well all the characters are interesting, flawed and complex -ArnoldoAAD

    17. The Unwritten (DC/Vertigo)
    Written by Mike Carey
    Drawn by Peter Gross

    The insanely complicated and full book that is The Unwritten is wonderful in so many aspects. The writing of Carey mixed with the art of Peter Gross makes this an unmissable and important contribution to the comics library. -countryfan2004
