Last week, Scott Snyder wrapped up his epic 18-issue run on Swamp Thing. Prior to Snyder’s venture with Alec Holland, Swamp Thing was hadn’t had a solid storyline for years.

I’ve been lucky enough to be exposed to all sorts of new and different books in 2012. I concede that my list has more super than horror but who knows what will be on here in 2013? Now that I look at my list, I still see quite a bit of the darker, murkier side of some of what mainstream comics offered. I have a mix of monthly, mini-series, and collections on this list. If you try something new in 2013, I hope it’s one of these great series. My top 12 of 2012 list is in no particular order because they’re all winners. Enjoy and Happy 2013! READ MORE

Now that we’ve had a year to reflect on the reboot, let’s talk about the ups and downs, the successes and failures, and imagine what the future holds for the no-longer-New 52. READ MORE

More importantly, whether the event is a fight between the three or a big team up, your guess is as good as ours. Let’s up DC releases some official information soon. READ MORE
