    Rocket Girl at 39? But only two issues have been out! I like the series, but it isn't that good and there is not enough here to say it is better than a lot of the series that came before it.

    Nice to see some love for Journey into Mystery.

    Afterlife With Archie is awesome. Of course I'm buying Marble Season when I get around to it. Been looking forward to reading Parker. Looks like a few more interesting things on the list, but Afterlife is the only one I have read out of this group. Well, I did read the first issue of Chew but decided not to follow it.

    Good to see Marble Season, Red Handed, Parker, Black Beetle and Chew in the list. The Lost Boy sounds interesting too. And scholastic books technically for kids? Maybe so, but they also released A Bag of Marbles this year, which is another good story that can be enjoyed by adults as well.

    It's a bit silly this list, considering there's numerous series put on here that have had 1 or 2 issues out only so far. Kind of weird to see X-Men placed so high as well. To each their own I guess!

    I'm kinda sad that Superior foes of spider-man didn't show up. Cause it deserves a spot on this list and I doubt enough people like me love this title to give it a spot in the top 25.
    Favorite comics out right now:
    1 Superior foes of Spider-man 2 Uncanny avengers
    3 Green arrow/Red lanterns 4 Wonder woman 5 Thor/Black science

    Favorite comic character: Deathstroke

    Once again the annual CBR list means nothing to me. When will these clowns hire reviewers who like exactly what I like?

    When!?

    Both Wolverine and the X-men and Adjectiveless in??? Why??? The reviews for both were horrific. The WATX is in the list of the worst books of the year. I want to see in the list familiar with me titles, but not like that. It is awful lit, it is like a fan's list. I am an x-men fan too. Ok the WATXM the first year was great, the second was ewww but this was horrible. I know that aaron is working in CBR but that is ridicilous. Also I liked Wood previous run on X-men, but that one is not so great as the previous. If someone wanted to vote Wood his ultimate X-men were much better. I cannot believe that the last year Gillen run on X-men wasn't in the list. I VOTE that list as the WORST of 2013...

    What is the "controversy" around Brian Wood referred to in the article? I have been kind of out of the comics news loop for a while. What did I miss?

    48. Afterlife With Archie - Is the only one I bought on this list. So far I'm at 5 for 75.

    I find this 'top 100' a bit weird so far. While it's encouraged me to pick up Templar, I found is strange that Thor was so low on the list, especially ahead of titles like Young Avengers, FF, Wolverine and the X-Men and Uncanny Avengers - all of which I've put in the 'unreadable' pile.
