This is X of Swords in its entirety. Like the rest of the line since Hickman took the wheel, it's a flawed, but mostly successful story.
★★★★★ I usually come into these based-on-little-known material event series from DC and Marvel with pretty low expectations because they're usually awful. Freedom Fighters isn't awful!

In addition to hope for a better year, there's a ton of books slated to come out next year that I'm looking forward to! I've picked ten of my most anticipated books below. I've added the release dates as they are today, but these things can sometimes change or get delayed so here's hoping they all hit the shelves!
Now that I've already made lists covering my picks for the best books and comics that were released in 2020, I figured I'd put together a list of my favorite reads from the year regardless of release year.

It's the end of the year, which means it's time for best-of lists! It was a bad year, but it was a good year for books. Below you can find my top ten books of the year (in no particular order), some honorable mentions, and a couple of audio-book only entries.
I'm not really a "DC should never touch the Watchmen" person but I do think they should endeavor to make good comics when they use them. Doomsday Clock is not that. My perception might be a bit altered by having read this in single issues as they were released on DC Universe. The series is long and it had a very lengthy release schedule.
It's the end of the year, which means it's time for top ten lists! It was a bad year, but it was a good year for comics. It took me forever to whittle down my list of favorites, but below you can find my top ten (in no particular order) comics/graphic novels/manga that were released in 2020 and plenty of honorable mentions!
