Its existential questions, alien-fueled intrigue, and some of the biggest action in comics today! PLUS: A preview of Stephen Colbert's Tek Jansen!

    Minimates?

    Minimates? Did I miss something?

    BTB, all the FCBD books were pretty good this year ... though the IDW is reprints. Nothing spectacular. Overall Marvel's Avengers book was the most impressive, though if more had happened Blackest Night #0 would have had that title.
