Don’t lie: You’ve got the theme song running in your head now. If you grew up in the early 2000s, you’re probably familiar with the Jhoen Vasquez’s created dose of pure insanity called Invader Zim, a Nickelodeon cartoon about an insane alien trying to take over a Earth that, frankly speaking, deserved to be. …

Well, another year gone. Everyone is spending their time with family, preparing dinners, and wrapping presents, and here I am, writing about the ten best comics not owned by the writers and artists that create them.

Time is running out. For the last two weeks, Marvel has been running a lot of new promos for old events (“Civil War”, “House of M”, “Infinity Gauntlet”, e.t.c.) with the words “Summer 2015”.
