2016 has been a rough year to be alive. We’ve all lost some of humanity’s favorite human beings like David Bowie, Prince, Muhammad Ali, and Harper Lee. On top of that news stories from across the globe have been… rough. In a year like this, we could all use an occasional respite in the forms of our favorite media. Luckily, 2016 has been a banner year for comics.
There are a lot of truly great series and original graphic novels available right now, and we at ComicBook.Com want to highlight some of the absolute best. In order to narrow our scope, we’re focusing on relatively new things that either debuted this year or started at the end of last year (too late to be considered for our Best Comics of 2015 list). If you’re looking for some recommendations to expand your comics reading or simply get away, we guarantee this list has some excellent starting points.
And don’t forget to share your own favorite new series of 2016 in the comments below!
