Brett’s Favorite Comics of 2022 and a Reflection on the Past Year

Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands

Much like 2021 and 2022, It feels weird writing a “best of” list for the past year since it’s been so difficult and so strange for so many. Comics, and entertainment as a whole, continued to be an escape from the rough reality of the previous year that was. Things struggled to get back to normal, whether you think it was too soon or not. There was some return to normality as comic conventions returned and movie blockbusters begin to populate screens. For me, I mostly stayed at home again venturing out very little, attending no conventions, and my one trip resulted in the exact result I expected… COVID. Maybe I explore things a bit more in 2023 but the reality is, things won’t ever be back to normal and enjoyment like conventions and movie theaters come with a risk. But, there’s still the escape of comics.

Comics have been exactly that for me as I myself remained mostly holed up at home, forgoing movie theaters and generally the public as a whole. 2022 saw me writing over 613 reviews and I read far more comics (probably closer to 700).

To pick one that stood out above all the rest doesn’t quite feel right as there was so much that was fun and entertaining.

The comic industry continued to shift in massive ways as creators continued to figured out new ways to become independent or were lured by the promise of big paydays by flashy new technology like NFTs. The end of the year looked so much different as numerous publishers revealed their financial struggles and the grift that is NFTs collapsed. Publishers got bought out and some struggled to stay open. Stores opened. Stores closed. Distribution continues to shift. The government even stepped in at one point in what would have had seismic repercussions for the comic and boo industry. The industry continues to be disrupted in many ways. Some ways for the better. Some for the worse. 2023 will likely continue to see this as more creators look to go directly to consumers.

Things shifted for everyone.

Publishers canceled projects, shifted schedules, and continued to look to go directly to the consumer themselves. Publishers faced distribution issues as ports backed up and then cleared up. The cost of doing business increased across the board. Creators looked for new ways to earn money and also go directly to the consumer.

Consumers and readers had more choices than ever before that made it easier to escape the world that at times felt like it was burning around them and find enjoyment in make-believe worlds where justice prevails in the end. It felt like there were more choices in comics to read and more choices in the types of comics to read.

In the end, 2022 looked like a mix of bleak and hope. There’s many challenges for the industry but also many more options for it to succeed. It feels so close to cracking a new model.

It feels weird doing this “best of” but at the same time I feel like I want to “honor” and spotlight the comics that got me through the year and had me excited to read the next issues. This is what I’ve read so if you don’t see something mentioned it’s not that I didn’t enjoy it, I just might not have read it. Sorry, I can’t read everything (there was a massive glut in webcomics but more manga for me).

All of these are listed in no particular order (hell it’ll probably just be in alphabetical). Enough with the rambling… lets get on with some comics!

The comics that had me excited in 2022 and have me excited for 2023. There’s so many more I could probably add to the list that I enjoyed but this is what really stood out as the ones that stuck with me through the year and beyond.

  • 007 (Dynamite Entertainment) – James Bond returned with a brand new series that felt like a solid return of the character. A straight forward story that leaves readers not knowing who to trust, it’s a Bond story fans will appreciate it and enjoy.
  • Accidental Czar: The Life and Lies of Vladimir Putin (First Second) – The graphic novel is a fantastic exploration of Putin’s rise to power. But, it’s the admission of failures of those who engaged him that makes it feel like an honest recounting of history.
  • Blue, Barry & Pancakes (First Second) – We got multiple volumes of this graphic novel series for kids and each was a lot of fun. It’s hard to not read these and walk away with a smile if you’re kid or an adult.
  • The Boxer (Yen Press) – The first volume was an interesting one that left us questioning who the real center of the story was as it bounced around three kids and their boxing ability.
  • Bunnicula: The Graphic Novel (Atheneum Books for Young Readers) – A graphic novel adaptation of the classic book. It took us right back to our childhood. We hope we get more in the series. Nostalgia for adults and fun for kids.
  • A Calculated Man (AfterShock) – A man brilliant at math as turned witness against the mob and uses his ability in math to take out the mobsters who are after him. There’s a Rube Goldberg aspect to the series that keeps it entertaining.
  • DC vs. Vampires (DC Comics) – Each issue and its spin-offs kept us on our toes guessing who was next to get turned, who was going to die, and how the heroes might win. By the end, we want more in this world.
  • Devil’s Reign (Marvel) – One of Marvel’s best events in some time. The story kept things focused and tight as the heroes had to deal with Wilson Fisk’s reelection attempt and his tightening grip on New York City. This was an example of less is more.
  • Do a Powerbomb (Image Comics) – Wrestling in comics is back in vogue but this series stands out for it’s amazing art as well as the fantastic family drama.
  • Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands (Drawn & Quarterly) – Kate Beaton shines a light on her difficult time working in the Alberta tar sands. At times a tough read, it’s educational in so many ways.
  • Eight Billion Genies (Image Comics) – The series has succeeded by keeping things focused. With a concept where everyone on the planet gets a wish, the series has generally kept it tight on a small group of survivors and how they deal with the insanity that spins out of it all.
  • Fist of the North Star (VIZ Media) – The classic series continued its reprints in a beautiful hardcover. If you’ve never read this “kung-fu Mad Max”, this is a perfect edition to pick up.
  • GCPD: The Blue Wall (DC Comics) – John Ridley delivers an interesting take on the Gotham police department with a focus on three rookies as Commissioner Montoya. There’s been highs and lows as Ridley continues to show how muddied reality is.
  • Ginseng Roots (Uncivilized Books) – The release schedule was erratic but Craig Thompson’s autobiography about his growing up around ginseng and the world of its farming has been eye opening and education. Add in beautiful art and Thompson continued to show off his talents.
  • Hakim’s Odyssey (Dead Reckoning) – What does it mean to be a refugee? This series wrapped up its final two volumes in 2022 chronicling Hakim’s journey from Syria to safety. It’s hard to read this series and not come away with wanting to see how we treat refugees and immigration changed.
  • I’m a Terminal Cancer Patient But I’m Fine (Seven Seas Entertainment) – Hilnama’s autobiography about her struggle with colon cancer. The graphic novel is not as sad and ominous as the title would seem, instead it’s full of humor and tips. Sadly, Hilnama passed away not long after the manga’s release.
  • Justice Warriors (AHOY Comics) – Fantastic satire that skewers policing, politicians, celebrity, consumerism, and society as a whole.
  • Let’s Go Karaoke (Yen Press) – A mobster needs a kid’s help to get good at karaoke. It’s such a bizarre concept but a lot of fun.
  • Maniac of New York: The Bronx is Burning (AfterShock) – I’m not the biggest horror fan but love this series. In between all of the kills, there’s some smart commentary within, just like horror should.
  • Metal Society (Image Comics) – In this future, robots rule. Humans are grown to do menial tasks for them but eventually the want of choice and freedom rises leading to a mixed martial arts battle between two warriors. The action packed comic had solid themes underneath and interesting discussions within.
  • Neverlanders (Razorbill) – A new take on the story of Peter Pan, the graphic novel took us the Neverland and by the end I wanted to see what other adventures awaited. Great art, solid action, colors that popped, and fantastic characters and twists. I want more adventures in the magical world.
  • Pinball: A Graphic History of the Silver Ball (First Second) – I’m a big fan of pinball and this graphic novel not only goes through the history of the game but also some of the nuances about the game itself showing it’s far more than just pushing buttons to hit a ball.
  • Plush (Image Comics) – Two issues were released in 2022 and they were bonkers. Cannibal furries. Nuff said.
  • Radical: My Year With a Socialist Senator (IDW Publishing/Top Shelf) – The graphic novel followed an election and first year of a “radical” elected official in New York State. It’s an eye-opening look at the reality of politics.
  • Rooster Fighter (VIZ Media) – The concept might seem silly, a rooster fighting kaiju/demons, but it works so well. The series is a solid ronin/western type story with hero of little words attempting to defeat villains and save the locals. By playing it straight and serious, the series nails it.
  • Smahtguy: The Life and Times of Barney Frank (Metropolitan Books) – The biography of Barney Frank is touching and at times heartbreaking as it focuses on the firebrand politician who had no problem taking on the establishment while he struggled with his sexuality.
  • So What’s Wrong With Getting Reborn as a Goblin? Vol. 1 (Yen Press) – The debut volume was a nice take on the “reincarnation in a different world genre”. What stood out was it’s spin that focused on using intelligence to build society instead of the usual leveling up through battle we see.
  • Solo Leveling (Yen Press) – The series keeps getting better with some fantastic action, nice ominous teasing, and amazing art with colors that pop. It’s such a fun spin on the dungeon crawler genre and the series feels like it has spun out it’s own imitators.
  • A Vicious Circle (BOOM! Studios) – While we only got the debut issue, the time travel story kept things entertaining but it was the art that made our jaw drop. We immediately wanted more and can’t wait to see what 2023 has in store.
  • Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons (DC Comics) – The first issue debuted at the end of 2021 and made the list and we got the final two issues in 2022. While it was a four month, then eight month gap, it was well worth it as each featured an engaging story and career defining artwork.

Review: Eight Billion Genies #4

Eight Billion Genies #4

Wow, talk about a series getting better with each issue. Eight Billion Genies #4 is an amazing end to the first chapter of this epic story as it teases what’s to come. The concept for the series is simple. In an instant, every person in the world is given a genie and granted one wish. You can imagine the chaos that would ensue from that. A group of individuals are protected within a bar and the series focuses on them as the world spirals out of control.

Writer Charles Soule lays it all out in Eight Billion Genies #4. We learn the truth about the bar and what’s going on. And it’s very interesting. The series quickly pivots to one of goofy infinite possibilities to something else entirely. This isn’t just some random event, there’s logic behind it and what is learned is epic in the implications in both the past and the future to come. Soule is delivering something more than just a story of survival, and like Undiscovered Country co-written with Scott Snyder, Eight Billion Genies now feels like a series that is exploring so much more. It has deep themes and a goal to explore humanity.

The art by Ryan Browne continues to be amazing. Browne takes the anything is possible and somehow makes it focused. It’d be easy for the art to pack in too much with so much going on, but Browne keeps the visual focused. This is an issue with superheroes, a twisted world, kaiju, and average folks in a bar. But Browne’s art keeps it all feeling cohesive and as if it all fits together. It’s interesting in how both Soule and Browne show restraint with a story that can be so much.

The first four issues of Eight Billion Genies is about the first eight weeks. The series now pivots to the next eight months. We’ve already seen the chaos that has ensued and now we get to see what might be the possibilities to come. But, despite that world of possible, it all comes back to a small group in a bar. The series is focused on the impact of a world gone crazy instead of the crazy itself. And that’s what helps make this one of the best new series of the year.

007 #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – We’re suckers for James Bond and this debut feels like a solid start to a new adventure. Read our review.

Astronaut Down #3 (AfterShock) – We’re sucked into this series about a desperate mission across the multiverse to stop a world destroying event. It’s awesome sci-fi embracing what makes the genre so good.

A.X.E.: Judgement Day #2 (Marvel) – The debut issue was a solid start to a major event that pits the X-Men against Eternals with the Avengers caught in-between. This issue really shakes things up as far as the story and direction.

DCeased: War of Undead Gods #1 (DC Comics) – The final chapter in the DCeased saga begins here!

The Deadliest Bouquet #1 (Image Comics) – A Nazi hunter is killed and her estranged daughters must solve her murder and avoid killing each other in the process.

Eight Billion Genies #4 (Image Comics) – The series has been amazing with huge, world altering concepts, but a tight focus on the impact of it all.

Frank Lee After Alcatraz (Titan Comics) – Frank Lee really escaped from Alcatraz but what happened after is a mystery. This graphic novel imagines what came next.

Love Everlasting #1 (Image Comics) – A new spin on classic romance comics, this one has a lot of buzz and good word of mouth from early reviews.

Predator #1 (Marvel) – With Prey out on Hulu, this release feels perfectly timed. Marvel has been knocking it out of the park with its Alien comic series and we’re expecting the same here.

Review: Eight Billion Genies #3

Eight Billion Genies #3

There’s something just utterly insane about this series and Eight Billion Genies #3 just amplifies it. In an instant, every person in the world gets a genie granting them one wish. You can imagine the chaos that follows as individuals wish away changing themselves, the world, reality, and more. The series focuses things down a bit on a group of individuals protected within a bar who have to figure out what to do next as the world around them constantly shifts.

Written by Charles Soule, Eight Billion Genies #3 is another fantastic issue. As happened in the previous issue, it opens showing us one of the wishes. It’s actually one of the more altruistic ones which is a stark contrast to so much that happens later in the issue.

But where this series has been amazing is the fact that it focuses on so few characters. Things are absolutely chaos in the world but we get a half dozen or so individuals hold up in a bar dealing with the change.

The issue veers off a bit focusing on Wang who has set off on a quest to get to the bar he and his wife originally wanted to go. We now know why and that story gets a bit deeper than was expected.

We also get to learn more about the rules of the world, such as wishing for the return of an individual. This has some pretty big ramifications for at least one wish already and that creates some intriguing decisions. By the end of the issue, we get an intriguing direction for the next arc of the series as the chaos expands and we get to see a “normal” begin to take shape.

The art by Ryan Browne continues to be great. With lettering by Chris Crank, the series has a kinetic feel that matches the insanity of the world. The story is not just driven by these individuals but all of the small details that are thrown onto every page and every panel. Those details tell as much of the story as anything else. What’s impressive is everything is completely insane but still feels grounded in a weird way. The team makes it work. Crank’s lettering adds the emotional punch that really brings home the moment.

Eight Billion Genies #3 is another fantastic issue of a series that has infinite possibilities. Literally, anything can happen. But, even with that, the team keeps things focused and don’t let their ideas get out of hand. So much is packed in but it’s never overwhelming or distracts. Each issue has been amazing at its focus and constraint while also delivering the unexpected.

Barbaric: Harvest Blades

Wednesdays (and Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Above Snakes #1 (Image Comics) – The series brings together Western tropes and good ole American vengeance from the creators of The Few and Thumbs.

AXE: Eve of Judgement #1 (Marvel) – Kicking off the big event of the summer for Marvel. The opening round of the Eternals battle against the people of Krakoa begins here.

Barbaric: Harvest Blades (Vault Comics) – The first volume was great with a fun take on the fantasy genre that delivered a lot of action and some good humor.

By the Horns: Dark Earth #2 (Scout Comics) – For those that enjoy fantasy, this is a must. It’s a great mix of magic and tech as magic is all out of whack and the world is in danger.

Cities of Magick #3 (Scout Comics) – The first two issues have been intriguing building up the world as magic now rules and technology is a thing of the past. It’s an interesting flip on the magic vs. tech story we’ve seen before.

Daredevil #1 (Marvel) – The next phase of Daredevil’s story begins here as the two go international and shift their focus on The Hand. You know this will eventually have the two having to take on the Punisher.

Dogs of London #3 (AfterShock) – We went in expecting a series about former gangsters haunted by their pasts but what’s been teased shows this is so much more. We’re stumped and want to know what’s going on.

Eight Billion Genies #3 (Image Comics) – The comic has been great so far. The ideas are wild but it’s also intelligently kept things focused as the world deals with everyone having a genie and a wish.

Flavor Girls #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A Magical Girl story with an environmental twist.

Justice Warriors #2 (AHOY Comics) – The first issue was great satire taking on the police and so much more. We want more of the same and hoping for exactly that. Skewer away!

Rogues #3 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The series has been a twisted heist story as the Rogues go for one last big one. It’s been amazing so far and a must for those that love the characters or that type of story.

X-Men: Hellfire Gala #1 (Marvel) – Last year’s event was a big deal so expect the same here.

Eight Billion Genies Grants Amazon’s Wishes
