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.
Even though comics as a form of entertainment are almost synonymous with jokes and making people laugh, modern comic books have stayed far away from comedy for the most part.
