  1. writer: Brian Bendis (superman books)
    artist: Trad Moore (Silver Surfer Black)
    breakout talent: Jorge Jimenez (Justice League)

    Kinda bummed I’m not super excited about any image books. Still buying all things Remender and have high hopes for Undiscovered Country and Family Tree. Will be jumping back into some Black Hammer minis, the return of Bitter Root and the new series On the Stump so hopefully 2020 is a stronger year indy wise for my pull list.

  2. Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
    Artist: Jorge Corona (Middlewest)
    Break Out: Tom Taylor

    Thanks for another year iFanboy!

  3. Writer: Tom King

  4. Writer: Bendis.
    Artist: Pepe Larraz
    Breakout: Daniel Warren Johnson blew me away on Murder Falcon.

  5. As I read that issue 6 of Up in the Sky, I kept thinking of that parable about the shepherd leaving the flock of 99 sheep to find the one that got lost. Needless to say, it resonated with me.
