Mark Julian's Top 5 Comic Book Panels Of 2012
The past year has seen a lot of good and a lot of bad in the comic book industry from Marvel, DC, Image, IDW and others. Continue on for my personal top 5 panels from some notable creator teams. Be sure to post your own favorites in the comments section.
All things considered, 2012 was a pretty good year for comic books. That's not to say that they year was devoid of controversy, disputes or disappointments but both Marvel and DC have to be pleased with their companies' fiscal performance. IDW and Image also make strides this year. It was a hard choice after reading over 300 issues this year but here are my top 5 panels of the year.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #8
Martian Manhunter laying a beat down on the entire Justice League. 'Nuff said.

JUSTICE LEAGUE #7
You could really pick a number of Green Lantern's panels from the early issues of Justice League but this one was my favorite. The book definitely misses his background humor.
