It's the end of the year. Usually that means websites post 'best of' lists. We didn't really go that route this year. By this point, you most likely know what we like, what series we felt were the best, which artists and writers are doing a great job, etc. The lists are always a matter of opinion based on who makes them. Maybe we'll reconsider and do one for next year.
While we do have a different kind of list coming up tomorrow, let's take the time to look at what you guys and gals found interesting this year. As you know, we have many visitors to our sites on the forums and news page. We do pay close attention to what people like. This is a list of the articles that had the most views. It may say a little something about what we post but it says more about what the Comic Vine community likes as well.

What comics were we looking forward to this past year? Did our opinions change? In some cases it's a little obvious our excitement diminished a little. Now we have a new year of comics to look forward to.
Do people realize how many costumes Spider-Man has had? We even did a video on this at the end of 2011. For a guy known for his classic red and blue costume, he's had a bunch of different looks. This article talks about some of them.
More cosplay. WonderCon was supposed to take place in San Francisco. Despite happening right when our transition from Whiskey Media to CBSi, we didn't let that or the change in venue stop us from attending.
People were surprised and excited about the possibilities of the Joker in the New 52. We're still in the midst of seeing his crazed plans unfold.

This was where we asked Scott about the Joker, what he had planned and what he thought about him before.
