Over the past few weeks, the Talking Comics crew has put together a list of the Best Comics of 2012. We narrowed that list down on the last three podcasts and for the first show in 2013, we announced which of those comics wound up victorious in both our minds and the minds of you, the fans. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to the show where we announce who won what, I highly (and with much bias) recommend that you check that out first by clicking here. Without delay, here are the winners for each category: Best Publisher Marvel DC Image IDW Dark Horse Staff Winner: Image Comics Fan Winner: Image Comics Breakthrough Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick Kurtis Wiebe Jeff Parker Matt Fraction JH Williams III Staff Winner: Kelly Sue DeConnick Fan Winner: Matt Fraction Basically in 2013, this comic book dream couple (who should just change their last name’s to Mr & Mrs Talented) will be taking over the world.
