Rafael Grampa’s Wolverine V Deadpool in Strange Tales II #1. Boom, there’s your winner. How this isn’t on the list baffles me, it was one of the greatest slices of comics in the past year. It was a gorgeously crafted tale of violence and desire and it might just be the perfect Wolverine tale. Ever. If you haven’t read it then check it out. The HC dropped last week, well worth it as the entire collection showcases a little bit of everything and near complete awesome quality. The quote on the back says as much, too :)
CBGB had some good tales, especially Kieron Gillen’s ‘A NYC Punk Carol’ which looked at the history of the scene through an experimental narrative flow, and Kelly Sue DeConnick’s ‘Count 5 or 6’ which was all about looking back on the scene and realising where you are today.
