In honor of Jeff Lemire’s double debut at both Marvel and Image, we at NBC made a list of his previous ten best works…
Another week of December, another best of 2013 list. Today, I shall be reviewing some of the most memorable single issues of the year. The criteria for selection is an issue, whether part of a larger narrative or simply a self-contained tale, that impacted me the most these twelve months. These are not necessarily the best overall stories; some outstanding arcs from 2013 are unrepresented because there was no specific issue that stood out from the others. So, with that in mind, I present a list of 15. First place is a tie between two thematically overlapping choices; the remainder are listed in alphabetical order.
TOP COMIC BOOK SERIES OF 2013!
LOOKING FOR WHAT’S NEW AND GOOD THIS WEEK?
WELL LOOK NO FURTHER, WE GOT YOUR BACK!
BY JEFF LEMIRE
Jeff Lemire’s “last love story” continues to astound with it’s own very special charm. There are not too many comics out there right now like this one. Get it.
Welcome to the very first article of Pull List Playlist! Before I begin, let me explain how this is going to work. Every week, I will take a selection of my comic pull list and find songs which I believe pair well with each issue. I will choose the songs based on the theme, reaction, and emotion of the issues. Quality of the comic will not be taken into consideration. That conversation belongs in other places on this site.
The gang is back with our FAVORITE COMIC MOMENTS THIS WEEK!

Wow. Just wow.
Each week, the gang will share various comics we think you should pull on Wednesday. These issues will be picked based upon just how excited we are for them to come out. Remember, these may not be the best books to come out this week, but they are ones we cannot wait to get our hands on. Feel free to chime in in the comment section below!
Event fatigue is for the weak…Ukerupp thinks
you should try:
Forever Evil #1
Geoff Johns and David Finch
I know I am going to catch a bunch of flack from
some of you, but I am really
excited for this follow-up to Trinity War. While TW
suffered from the boring chaos during the middle
chapters, it began interesting and ended with a
perfect cliff-hanger. With all the different reveals in
the final issue (The Grid, anyone?!?), I cannot wait to
see what comes next. Johns has me hook, line, and
stinker sinker for this series.
