What may go down as one of the worst years in recent memory is slowly crawling to a close, and while we wish it good riddance and hope against hope that 2017 will be an improvement, there is some small solace in looking back over the year that's passed and figuring out what stuff from it was the best. That's right, it's "Best of..." list time, and today we're taking a look at the Best DC Covers of 2016.

Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with decades of comics behind, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

Blind bag toys have been a huge market these past few years, and perhaps no brand knows this better than Lego. Since launching the blind bag minifigures back in 2010, Lego has had tremendous success with the collection, which has had 16 proper waves alongside special edition series like Disney and The Simpsons. Early next year, another special series will see Lego celebrate the launch of The Lego Batman Movie, and you might be surprised to see who's being packed inside.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

One of the weirder quirks of DC's Rebirth era is that Superman and Batman are both fathers. With Jon Kent and Damian Wayne both running around the universe, it was only a matter of time before the World's Finest Dads got together to spend some quality time with their kids.
In next week's Superman #10, it's finally happening as Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, and Mick Gray kick off "In The Name of the Father." I just don't think anyone expected it to involve a psychedelic moose. Check out an exclusive preview!

Lego Dimensions, the toys-to-life game that has brought together franchises such as The A-Team, Harry Potter and Portal, is expanding even more next year as it welcomes two new franchises into the fold.
One of them isn't too surprising, as the game will getting a major update based around the upcoming Lego Batman Movie. At the same time the game will introduce another franchise, as Michael Knight and KITT of Knight Rider join the fray.
