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!

Deadpool Comic Book Marvel

Article by Gregg Katzman

But you really didn’t think a little thing like two Earths crashing into each other would stop Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, from finding his way back into the spotlight, did you? Of course not! The Merc With a Mouth is back for an all-new volume, and seeing as the third issue goes on sale tomorrow, we wanted to let you know why the title is worthy of your time and focus. (And your money, obviously. What? Did you seriously think Deadpool would let you read his adventures for free?)
