What have been the best comics of 2021? We review the best of the year in a list as complete as possible, with titles of all publishers, types and colors!
We come to the end of the year and it is time to recall which ones have been the best comics of 2021. Like every course, we are going to remember and leave you a list with the best of the course.
The list – like almost all lists on the Internet – is certainly personal and, therefore, subjective; In other words, you will surely agree with the presence of some series and disagree with the absence of others.
Be that as it may, we wanted to include all kinds of works in the list of the best comics of 2021 in order to make it as eclectic and complete as possible.
However, to be truly complete, we ask you to leave us your top of the year in the comments and thus there will be a much larger number of titles.
Are you ready? Come on, let’s start with the list of the best comics of 2021!
As it’s usual, Tom King It has not failed in the list of the best of the year. Together with your appreciated Mitch Gerards has developed a most interesting story that combines classic science fiction with the superhero world, while sustaining a narrative pulse with the characters and conveying an unfathomable sense of familiar meaning.
Maybe Strange Adventures It has not been his best work, we have to admit it, but the proposal is so solid, the drawing so good and the dialogues so well written that we fall in love with the evidence… This guy is still the best screenwriter in the world!
Edited by Astiberri in Spain, the work of G. Willow Wilson Y Christian Ward it’s one of those sci-fi fantasy plots that reminds us why we adore this genre. Invisible Kingdom tells the amazing story of two women who are faced with the dichotomy between accepting fate or forging one of their own.
Okay, that’s right … I may be cheating and this comic is from 2020! But it is that it finished being published in Spain in February 2021 and I always want to vindicate Lois Lane because it seems to me an amazingly well written comic and with a protagonist of those that take away the hiccups.
Greg Rucka, with the invaluable illustrated help of Mike Perkins, gifted us with a magnificent account of journalism and investigation by taking the focus away from Metropolis from Superman and reminding us once again why Lois Lane is one of the best female characters in DC.
And since we have “cheated” with Lois Lane, as we take the opportunity to sneak into the list of comics the biggest manga bombshell of the season: Tokyo Revengers. Perhaps you are familiar with the controversy with the swastika that leads to confusion with Nazi Germany, but it has much more.
Tokyo Revengers It is one of those manga that, in the first bars of the reader, confirms all your suspicions: it is a real hit that is going to blow up the market, it is going to be a long story full of twists and, above all, you are completely hooked.
Wonder Woman: Dead Land
We shouldn’t just talk about Wonder Woman: Dead Land, but we should also strongly insist that its author, Daniel Warren Johnson, is probably one of the best artists on the international scene, increasingly consolidated in the comic industry.
To give you an idea, Wonder Woman: Dead Land It is to the story of Diana Prince that Return of the Dark Knight Frank Miller’s is Batman. With that we tell you absolutely everything! Please read it. And then come worship Daniel Warren Johnson with us.
We weren’t going to leave out a Marvel Comics work like Eternals, especially if we take into account that the artists who sign their authorship are the gigantic and monumental Kieron Gillen Y Esad Ribic. What a surprise this staple collection of Los Eternos has been!
What seemed like an excuse to sell comics under the guise of the Marvel Studios movie turned into a series full of heart and identity. It may not be the “best” way to start reading to Jack Kirby’s kids, but it’s certainly worth it.
Jimmy Olsen, Superman’s friend
And Lois Lane We were surprised, three-quarters of the same happened to us with the series starring one of Clark Kent’s best friends and one of the most representative figures in the Superman mythology. How we liked it Jimmy Olsen, Superman’s friend!
Created by Matt Fraction Y Steve Dear, Jimmy Olsen’s series has a lighthearted tone but so purely comic that it dazzled most of the readers who gave it a chance. He very much deserves to be on this list at the end of the year, even if he is just as “cheat” as Lois Lane.
Although it began to be published in 2018 (how different our life was then), Seeds It officially concluded this year and has become one of the best comics of 2021 with a surprising foreboding narrative and immeasurable talent.
Edited by Astiberri in our country, the work of Ann Nocenti Y David Aja is a technological thriller halfway between eco-fiction and a love story, presenting us with a future that seems to be far away but has so many similarities to our present that it is truly unsettling.
Also by the hand of Tom King, although this time with the wonderful and mind-blowing visual art of Jorge Fornes, we have been forced to include Rorschach on this list. And that we start the spin-off series of Watchmen with many doubts, many concerns and even many prejudices.
However, despite how bad this proposal seemed to us at first, Rorschach He won us over with this convoluted political and ideological labyrinth, combining the pulp with the personal and bureaucratic experience of the author himself.
The result? Probably the only worthy sequel (not counting the television series) that we have had of Alan Moore’s work, because what a disappointment we got along with The Doomsday Clock.
Edited in a unique and amazing by the Dolmen publishing house in our country, the work of Barry Windsor-Smith has become one of the major references of the course. We talk about Monsters, a comic whose original idea dates back almost forty years and that will leave you frozen.
The story of Monsters, which a priori is a review of the origin of the Hulk in the cartoons, talks about real and metaphorical monsters, and, above all, talks about what lives behind us all, about that evil that sometimes shapes us and remains hidden in what deeper inside us.
