Some Top 10 Picks of the Last Decade

Not only is it the end of the year, it’s also the end of the decade. So, being the comicbook nerd that I am, I decided to throw my own 2 cents about the comicbook world over the last 10 years into the ocean that is the interweb. That said, I wracked my brain on how to divide my kudos to the medium that keeps on giving, trying to jam pack as many of my faves as possible into whatever lists I could think off. The result is 3 sets of top 10 picks that have no particular order that hopefully don’t overlap (ie; Millar & Hitch are in one list so Ultimates won’t be in any of the other 2). Now enough yakking, release the lists!
