2016 has been a great year here at Midtown Comics. Not only was it full of exciting events – like an all-star Batman Day signing and a poster signing with the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse (watch the video below) – but it was also overflowing with legitimately great comics. Marvel unleashed some giant changes to classic characters and its universe; the DC Universe focused on revitalizing its iconic characters with DC Rebirth; Image, Valiant, and many other publishers continued to generate terrific titles. Let’s see why some of the Midtown Comics staff had an unforgettable time reading comics this year.
I think I speak for all all Action Figure Junkies that we will collectively sigh in relief when 2016 comes to a close after an unmatched year of iconic losses culminating this week with geek goddess Carrie Fisher. With the loss of a bona fide Princess and most of Junkies first crush in action figure form no doubt, it seems a good time to focus on the happy. And you just don’t get happier than toys and year end Top 10 lists!
It was a banner year for action figures with a slew of newcomers and old favorites redefined that made our collective wallets scream for sweet relief. Here we have gathered our ten best that are available here on the Midtown Comics retail website. It was tough to cut the list down to just ten items in our expansive inventory but if one pattern emerged, its that STAR WARS, Batman & POP Vinyls have major staying power.
