    21. Scalped (DC/Vertigo)
    Written by Jason Aaron
    Drawn by R.M. Guera, Dean Haspiel, Denys Cowan, Igor Kordey, Jill Thompson, Tim Truman, Jason Latour

    Jason Aaron continues his epic tale of Dashiel Bad-Horse and the Prairie Rose Reservation with a unique attempt this past year to turn things on their ear by having a number of characters make dramatic changes in their lives, asking the question, “CAN a bad man change course midstream?” And Aaron shows the somewhat devastating results of these attempts. The tragic but heartfelt character examinations are well worth the price of admission – that you get all the wonderful artwork (especially RM Guera) is a major major bonus. -Brian Cronin

    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

    16. Uncanny X-Men Volume 2 (Marvel)
    Written by Kieron Gillen
    Drawn by Carlos Pacheco

    I didn't want to like this, but the art and writing both are stellar and incredibly smart. The team should not work, but Gillen manages to make it so with a reasonable rationale. -countryfan2004

    15. Avengers Academy (Marvel)
    Written by Christos N. Gage
    Drawn by Mike McKone, Tom Raney, Sean Chen

    This book is non-stop fun with great character development and relationships among the characters. I'm sad to see Justice leave, though. -countryfan2004

    14. Swamp Thing Volume 5 (DC)
    Written by Scott Snyder
    Drawn by Yanick Paquette, Victor Ibañez, Marco Rudy

    the Sophisticated Suspense of Scott Snyder makes this into a deep read giving a complete new layer to the already brilliant history of the swampthing -ArnoldoAAD

    13. Batman, Inc. (DC)
    Written by Grant Morrison
    Drawn by Chris Burnham, Yanick Paquette and Cameron Stewart

    "The DC New 52 relaunch makes it difficult to recall just how many issues of Batman, Inc. came out in 2011, but when you take a look, a lot more excellent Batman Inc. comics came out than you would think, enough to earn it a place on this list, despite the series' last issue before the New 52 being the title's worst issue. Chris Burnham was a breakout star with his artwork and Grant Morrison had a number of stellar issues, including an amazing reinvention of the original Batwoman and a striking look at the everyday life of Man-of-Bats, the Sioux Batman." -Brian Cronin

    12. Aquaman Volume 7 (DC)
    Written by Geoff Johns
    Drawn by Ivan Reis

    Aquaman is portrayed as a bad-ass, but also a patient and capable man struggling with his sense of identity, while having to deal with being the "joke" of the hero community, despite the reputation being undeserved. -Sharkerbob
    Geoff Johns made my Worst list with Green Lantern for sure. But here he seems to be returning to what made him a good writer in the 1st place. Concentrating on not huge event driven crap. Tell good stories and build new rogues for Aquaman and develop long term storylines.

    He seems to be clicking on all barrels issues in and makes me wanna read a book like this. Aquaman has had his good and bad periods for sure. Right now its currently on its good period. -SUPERECWFAN1

    11. X-Factor Volume 1 (Marvel)
    Written by Peter David
    Drawn by Emanuela Lupacchino, Leonard Kirk

    I didn't think I'd have X-Factor in my number one slot, but here it is. It's the most consistent ongoing book, and continues to engaging, unpredictable, surprising storylines. -countryfan2004

    10. Batwoman (DC)
    Written by J.H. Williams III, W. Haden Blackman
    Drawn by J.H. Williams III, Amy Reeder Hadley

    Rarely does a book stand out from the art alone, but the art in Batwoman is always inventive, creative, and sensible. -countryfan2004

    8. Detective Comics Volume 1 (DC)
    Written by Scott Snyder
    Drawn by Francesco Francavilla, Jock, Mark Simpson

    Gripping, haunting, and energetic. A tour de force of writing and artwork that manages to do something new within seemingly familiar territory. -maniacmatt
    its just a deep read, it messes with your head and crawls under your skin, you feel and fear what the characters are feeling and thats what makes it so great -ArnoldoAAD
