justice five

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.

The Red Tornado Family Welcomes Red Volcano


When DC Comics revealed that September's "Red Tornado" #1 by Kevin VanHook, Jose Luis and J.P.
