My Top 5 for FCBD 2014!

1. TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE

Tom Scioli brings his Kirby/Godland magic to the world of Transformers vs. G.I.Joe. This unique offering from IDW gets the top spot this year!

2. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

 With the expected mega-hit movie coming up, and 2 top mainstream creators(Bendis & Bradshaw) contributing a new tale here, I put this free comic from Marvel at #2!

Graham Annable, James Kochalka, Nate Neal, Sam Henderson & company all bringing new content to another edition of United Plankton’s yearly anthology of zany Spongbob cartoons gets a nod at #3!

4. DEFEND COMICS

Some classic humorists of the comics industry(Sergio Aragones, Mark Evanier, etc.) contribute a lighter side to the very serious issue of defending free speech in comics.  CBDLF‘s Defend Comics is a “shoe-in” for the Top 5!

5.  HIP HOP FAMILY TREE TWO-IN-ONE

This might have scored a higher slot, but this will be my introduction to Ed Piskor’s critically acclaimed series, so I felt I couldn’t give an “unknown” too much recognition.(I know…nobody gives a crap..heh) I hear there’s some original bonus content by other artists, as well as the 2 self contained reprinted stories.

Honorable Mentions:

WALT DISNEY SCROOGE DONALD DUCK GRAVITY by Don Rosa.  This almost made the cut! I like me some Don Rosa Duck action, and these are rare stories, so you should still pick it up as I will!

DC THE NEW 52 FUTURES END SPEC ED by Azzarello, Lemire, Giffen, etc.  It’s an original story by some talented folks, for those of you who follow The New 52…

ZOMBIE TRAMP & EHMM THEORY I don’t know why, maybe it’s the cover with the awesome Zombie cleavage…so I had to mention this one, although I’ve never read this comic book before.
