Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

DC Comics and IDW Publishing have teamed up to create a crossover that is 110% fan service: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We loved the first issue – read about it here – and maybe – just maybe – we had the opportunity to read the second issue a little early.

So, without looking yet, how many of these gems do you think you grabbed in 2015?

Before we step into the future – will there finally be legitimate hover boards in 2016? – it’s time to reflect on the past. In 2015, quite a few awesome comic book series were published. There are several comics that won us over for totally different reasons, but we’ll keep it concise and take a quick look at just 25 of our favorite comics from 2015 (plus 5 honorable mentions). After all of the staff picked their favorites, we went ahead and ranked them. Obviously, there’s plenty of great comics out there and the list is sure to fluctuate from person-to-person. So, if your top choices aren’t below, go ahead and give them some love in the comments!
