It has been a frankly amazing year for comics — filled with big events, controversial moments, and an incredible variety of comics, with diversity in genre, characters, and stories giving us shelf upon shelf of amazing books to dig into week after week. It was hard to narrow them down to 20, but without further ado, here are our absolute favourite comics from this year.

Rick Remender, Wes Craig and Lee Loughridge's Deadly Class has been one of the most interesting books coming out of Image Comics in the past few years — and it looks like Sony's been paying attention. The company is now bringing it to TV, and have tasked Infinity War helmers Anthony and Joe Russo to produce it.
If I recall the saying correctly, "Red sky at night... mean that the sheep are on fire.". This isn't a case of burning quadrupeds, though, but a shot taken by NASA near Flinders of Last week's Solar storm. And it's not just a good looking shot.
Don't have an anti-shake camera stabiliser in your camera? Have a chicken handy? Great! Just strap your cam to its head and watch as nature's image stabilisation service does all the work work. According to the video, motion processors use an inertial measurement unit, which senses motion (rate, type and direction) and compensates for it. Chickens have a pretty advanced version. There you go: easy image stabilisation.
These Klipsch Image X5 are the follow-up to the original Klipsch Image headphones, which were the smallest in-canal earbuds ever. The originals are now X10s (top), which are 2mm smaller than the slightly beefier X5s (bottom). The buds still have Contour Ear Gels and noise isolation, but cost US$250 as opposed to the US$350 of the X10. Depending on how these sound in comparison to the flagship X10, they might be a pretty good trade-off of 2mm for US$100. Make sure to try shoving something really deep inside your ear to simulate how it feels before you buy a pair. It's not for everyone.
