Seein’ as it’s that time o’ year again, ol’ Satan Claws dropped his usual big bag o’ sh– down my chimney hole. Let’s hunker down and grab that sack and see if anything good pops out…
Here’s somethin’ that’s as rare in these parts: a film that’s well acted, well shot with an engaging original story, and that is overall as slick as greased weasel sh– on a door knob! What film am I speaking of, you may ask? Seriously? Did you really just ask that? Look up… yeah, see those words with all the fancy red and blue and the giant picture that preceded them? I’m talkin’ ‘bout The Device, and after seein’ it I bet your arse will be too! »
The Best Comics of 2014

Yup, it’s that time of year again.
When I completed this list I realized that it contains exactly zero Marvel titles and zero DC “main line” titles. This was not intentional, as I’m enjoying several from both publishers: Magneto, Loki: Agent Of Asgard, Batman, and Constantine to name a few—in fact, I’m sure everyone is sick of my spouting the praises of Snyder and Capullo’s Batman run—but this year, the comics that caught my attention were less of the superhero and more of the bizarre, the outcast, the deadly, the horrifying. Basically, if it made me go Wtf?, it made the list. And there is a lot of glorious WTFness going on in comics right now.
