Man, it was a crazy year to get back into Comics.  Taking a cursory look back, we had:

FF11 Negative Zone Cult

  • Hickman launch FF, which had the Fantastic Four taking in a ton of other people and even working with their enemies.
  • Speaking of which, right before the year ends, Johnny Storm returns!
  • Uncanny X-Men was relaunched for the first time since it came to be in the 1980s
  • Flashpoint and all the crazy changes to the DC universe
  • Scott Snyder’s amazing run on Detective Comics ended with an AWESOME final arc

Wolverine and the X-Men #3

  • Schism and Regenesis happened – resulting in the X-Men once again having a school!
  • The great (or shall I say, amazing) Spider-Man event of Spider-Island
  • The great last few arcs of Gotham City Sirens (even if I wasn’t a huge fan of the final issue)
  • and the end of Buffy Season 8


Man, a lot of stuff happened in one year!  And I only started in May!  I wonder what 2012 will hold!
