TDKR Batman

Article by Jarrett Kruse

If you thought you were going to get out of 2015 without a top 10 list from Midtown Comics, then you were sorely mistaken. In conjunction with Action Figure Junkies (AFJ), the leading action figure spot on social media, we have racked our brains for the better part of December knowing that the day would come where we would have to whittle our very large list down to a paltry 10 entries. Prepare yourselves, because a whole lot of factors were taken into account before being picked at, edited, polished and finally cleaned up. So, without looking yet, how many of these gems do you think you grabbed in 2015?

Martian Manhunter cover

Article by Gregg Katzman

Superman. Batman. Wonder Woman. The Flash. Those are just a few of the names that immediately come to mind when people talk about the DC universe. Despite appearing in comics since 1955 and being absurdly powerful, J’onn J’onzz, a.k.a. Martian Manhunter, has never reached the same level of popularity as his heroic peers.
