If 2011 was a great year for comic book heroes than chances are it’s because they were beating up on some pretty great villains; whether their trying to take over the world, have a personal vendetta, or were just programmed that way watching the good guy vs the bad never gets old, partially because the bad guys can sometimes be just as great. In a different way. Being a villain isn’t cool.

Right?

Our favorite villains(s) category includes any individual villain or team of villains from any point during 2011.

Favorite DC Comic Books of 2011

What a year for DC. A universe-defining event in Flashpoint, wrapping up final issues, and the relaunching of an entire line of books gave fans one heck of a rollercoaster, and although were now well into DC’s “New 52″ the lasting impression from the titles that came before are still fresh in our minds (and in some cases will never leave). DC’s complete body of work in 2011 is unlike any year we’ve ever seen; still, everyone has a favorite…

Our favorite DC books category includes any comic book series from 2011; before or after the relaunch.

Favorite Comic Book Writers of 2011

2011, to say the least, was big for comics. After cooling down from mega events (kind of) DC and Marvel returned to the form with Flashpoint and Fear Itself, all of which was overshadowed by DC’s relaunch, The New 52. Several big creators from the 90′s returned to the big time, the 22-page format began to dwindle away, and if that wasn’t enough this was THE YEAR of day-and-date digital comics, more than 50% of comics sold every Wednesday are now available digitally the same day their released in stores.

So in honor of the last year we are returning to our “favorites” – throughout the coming weeks each writer for the site gets one selection for different categories such as favorite writers and artists to their favorite character, book, cover, death, and more, each spanning the 2011 year.

Our favorite writers category includes any comic book writer from 2011; whether they wrote a monthly comic series, an original graphic novel, one single issue, or were the host to a span of different content, if they wrote comics, they could be someone’s favorite.

Secret Six #33 Review

Gail Simone continues to deliver some very twisted but excellent story telling in Secret Six #33, “The Infernal Finale.” The team is offered a chance to stay in Hell and serve in Ragdoll’s new court here, or go down fighting and suffer eternal torment. The debate amongst them is ended as it usually is- Deadshot decides for them and shoots Ragdoll in the head. A nice touch in the art here is the team gradually takes on more demonic appearances as the story goes on- Hell is affecting them whether they wish it, or even notice it, or not.

C2E2: Interview with Gail Simone

Fan favorite Gail Simone is one cool lady.  Let’s face it, she writes awesome comics and is just a great person to chat with.  I know more than a few people who enjoy her hit series Birds of Prey and Secret Six.  That’s not even mentioning the number of people who loved her fantastic run on Wonder Woman.  So, when I saw she was going to be at C2E2 this year, I knew I just had to spend a few minutes to just ask her some questions about comics.  Today, I got that chance.  Nevermind that I was sweating like a pig as I worked my way through the show floor to get to her table in the back corner of Artist Alley, I have to admit this was one of the very cool things I’ve had a chance to do as a comic fan.  Let’s see what she has to say!
