Eight Billion Genies Deluxe Edition Vol. 1 by Charles Soule and Ryan Browne

Staff Pick

 

My favorite graphic novel of the year explores what might ensue if everyone got a genie of their own, and that genie granted them just one wish. That's the tantalizing question a group of Detroit dive bar patrons faces as the inevitable (and chaotic) results unfold over the next eight seconds, then the next eight minutes, all the way into the next eight centuries. This is everything you want from a comic--a wild premise that unfolds with perfect logic, brought to vivid life by Browne's endlessly entertaining art. If your wish is for pure awesomeness, you got it!

Lex Luthor has implemented a plan sure to kill Superman, but in the last months before he dies, Superman completes Herculean tasks and goes on crazy adventures, including Bizarro’s square planet, thus ensuring that All-Star Superman lives up to its title as the quintessential best Superman has ever been! This is a fabulous, heartfelt, humorous, and all-around delightful self-contained storyline for comics fans.

Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins, by The McElroys and Carey Pietsch

Staff Pick

Chills! Thrills! An elf wizard named Taako! Based on the wildly popular podcast of the same name, the first volume of The Adventure Zone delivers on its goofy premise and keeps all the best elements of the source material. Skeptics and devotees of Dungeons & Dragons alike will delight at Griffin McElroy's fourth wall-breaking cameos as Dungeon Master and good-natured skewering of some of the sillier aspects of the roleplaying format (perception checks, final bosses, etc.). Taako, Magnus, and Merle may only be at level one, but with some help from the Extreme Teen Bible and a magic umbrella, they're about to take the (fantasy) world by storm.
