Whether you're a fan of Marvel, DC, or another company, 2023 was a fun year for comic book fans. It seemed like something major was going on every week. In Marvel Comics, the Avengers prevented Mephisto from destroying the Multiverse. DC Comics changed their premiere superhero team. Instead of the Justice League, the Titans are charged with protecting Earth. Meanwhile, Image Comics has brought in writer Robert Kirkman to start the Energon Universe (more on that later).

Coming up, this writer will break down the best of comic books in 2023. Categories will include the best comics, writers, heroes, villains, artists, and more. With that will come an explanation of what made them great. Let’s begin.

Best Ongoing Comic Book: Batman/Superman: World’s Finest

Writer: Mark Waid

Batman/Superman: World’s Finest has everything you’d want from a comic book. Action, adventure, and two of the greatest heroes ever created. The best part is this series takes place in the past. That means things don't have to connect to the current timeline. Also, seeing a young Dick Grayson fan over Superman is great. What’s even better is Batman’s reaction to it. He was obviously jealous.

Underrated Comic Book of the Year: She-Hulk

Writer: Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell gave comic book readers a different kind of series. Think of Sex and the City but with a better story and more punching. As cliche as it sounds, Jennifer was trying to have it all. Along the way, she falls in love with an unlikely partner, joins a fight club, and saves New York City. In short, She-Hulk is the most fun series of the year.
