02charlesxavier

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a

seanmurphywolverinexyz

We got a taste of Sean Murphy's Wolverine-ized alphabet back in October, but the "Joe the Barbarian" artist is a busy man and as such, it's taken him awhile to complete his full A-Z project at his deviantART page.
