2012 WAS AWESOME! Some of the coolest comic books, movies, and TV shows of all time came out this year and we’re here to give you our top 15 most important moments of 2012. Take a gander and let us know what you think!
15. Valiant Relaunch
14. Grant Morrison Leaves Comics
It came as a shock when comic book legend Grant Morrison announced he was leaving DC comics and straying away from superhero comics for the foreseeable future. We hope he’ll return to the industry soon, but until then we’re enjoying his non-super adventures just the same.
13. Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1
Love it or hate it for whatever reason, Before Watchmen was definitely a huge event for 2012. It’s a bummer that the series isn’t constructed or even approved by Moore, but with a book as amazing as Watchmen it is exciting to get to see the characters in their own stories.
11. Arrow TV Show
10. Joe Kubert R.I.P.
9. The Underwater Welder
8. Disney Buys Star Wars; Announces Sequels
7. Marvel NOW!
6. The Amazing Spider-Man
The relaunch did a great job separating itself from the original Sam Raimi trilogy and making the content feel fresh. We’re looking forward to seeing what Webb does with the next installment of the franchise.
5. The Manhattan Projects
4. Avengers vs X-Men
3. The Punisher: Dirty Laundry
Thomas Jane made The Punisher relevant again with these graphic short movie. Fingers crossed this leads to another Punisher film.
2. The Avengers
1. The Dark Knight Rises
Thanks to everyone involved in creating comic books for keeping us entertained and making 2012 one of the best years ever. We’re look forward to seeing what you do in 2013!
