What are the best (not just good) comics of 2023? (That includes webtoons, graphic novels, and manga!)

Although comics love to end on cliffhangers, we can't wait any longer to begin determining the best comics of 2023.

2023 was Popverse's first full year in existence, and it seems like almost all the great comic creators made it a point to make us happy by releasing great comics.

Whether you're a Marvel/DC type of fan, someone who prefers their experience right-to-left and super-engaging, or someone who likes to read comics while hanging upside down (we see you!) - there's been something for you.

The Popverse staff has begun listing, talking, arguing, beseeching, and even be-screeching about your faves of 2023 in order to come up with a list of the best comics of 2023 - but we want to hear what you think.

I know, I know... it's hard to narrow it down to just one movie to be the be-all, end-all of this year. With that in mind, we're asking you to share your top 5 best comics of 2023 - in ranked order - for us to take in with everyone else's votes to figure out definitively, defiantly, what the best movies of 2023 are.

Please visit the below link and make your choices by Friday, December 15 at midnight Eastern Time, and we'll share the results later on in the year:
