It's been yet another great year for comics. There's been alot of changes and set ups for changes, which is usually a good thing. So, out of all the great issues that came out this year, what was your single favorite one?

Mine was a recent issue of Daredevil when Kingpin lays it all out to Ben Urich. I closed that issue and literally said out loud, "Holy shit, Murdock is fucked." I mean, this year had what, 2-3 years leading up to it...and it payed off huge. The characters in this book are just sooo real and human (instead of "comic book-y" that I find myself getting swallowed up in the story.

Honorable mentions: Identity Crisis #1 - Killer last page
Green Lantern Rebirth (any issue) - Just an astounding story, not to mention the acrobatic storytelling straightening out GL's weird-ass history. The art is nothing less than stellar.
Hell, there's too many to keep naming...

A few of my favorites:

Young Avengers #1 (I went this with aprehension, and was blown away)
Ultimates 2 #9 (What can I say what hasn't allready been said, probably my favorite this year)
ASS #1 (Really cool, finally a DC book I am interested in)
New Avengers #11 I think it was, the first issue of the Ronin book.

I can't really think of one issue for the whole year but I agree that these issues were really excellent and would definitely rank up there.

Still not read Ultimates #9 or ASS #1.

YA was a good issue.
The DD issue mentioned in the first post was also damn good.
Ultimate Spidey Annual was really good.

There are many other that aren't coming to mind at the minute.

Probably some DEMO issue (maybe #9), if that came out this year. I only read them last week.

I also loved All-Star Supes #1.

We3 #3 (best single issue I read all year)

Desolation Jones #1 (best first issue to a new series to come out all year)

Incredible Hulk #??? (the PAD and Jae Lee issue. It was the best done-in-one story of the year)

These are just my opinion.
