CBR’s 100 Best Comics of 2021: # 75-51

After a short five year hiatus, we are back with a long CBR tradition. At the end of the year, we polled the many CBR staff who make this site so awesome and asked them for their ranking of the best comics of the year. Every publisher releasing new comics in English, regardless of genre or format, was fair game; each individual list is then taken into account to determine the overall Top 100 that will be unveiled on CBR during that week.

We started Monday with # 100-76, with the countdown continuing each day this week. Here is the schedule (every hour in the East): Wednesday, 12/29, 3 p.m .: Top 50-26; Thursday 12/30, 3 p.m .: Top 25-11; Friday 12/31/3 p.m .: Top 10; Saturday 1/1, 9 a.m .: Master list.


Start going through the list below, and if you are feeling so moved, take Twitter and (politely) discuss your thoughts using the hashtag # CBRTop100.
