Welcome to the end of the first week of 2012. It's the perfect time to take one last look at the year in comics that just ended, and we did so with our 11 Best Comics of 2011, which you can review here, if you missed it. This week also saw the mysterious hooded lady that appeared in DC's Flashpoint #5 and all 52 of the publisher's September #1's get a name, and the great state of Nevada got... this. After the jump? The rest of ComicsAlliance's week, in handy summary format.

REVIEWS:


  • David Brothers took a look at the first issue Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' Fatale, the prolific pair's new crime/horror comic
  • David Uzumeri made the case that the most visually inventive series in DC's New 52 may be Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato's The Flash
