Most people don't buy comics in single issues, which makes the holidays the perfect time to catch them up on what they missed.

2013 was a strong year for comics, and not just because the movies adapted from them were so successful. Marvel relaunched a ton of books with some all-star talent, Valiant Comics took their old franchises and revived them, Batman got darker than ever, and Image firmed up their spot as the best place to go for creator-owned books.

With all those options out there, you might wonder what you should be buying people (or be asking for, as the case may be). So we've put together a list of 18 possibilities. You'll find sci-fi, fantasy, cape-and-tights fare, and even some slice of life to entice the comic geek in your life.
