The weather might suggest otherwise, but December has arrived and with it the inevitable year’s end lists. Luckily, at Nothing But Comics, we’re quite fond of year’s end lists. Our first group Top Ten will arrive tomorrow, but first I offer up my annual look back at some of the most memorable character from 2016.
All entries are listed alphabetically. For simplicity sake, characters without code names are listed by first name.
Shutter began its 2016 with an issue spotlighting the relationship between lead protagonist Kate and Huckleberry. #18 was an emotionally powerful portrait of the crests, crashes and aftermath of a love affair which set the tone for a stellar year from Joe Keatinge and Leila Del Duca’s creator owned series. Hence, it is only appropriate for its penultimate chapter of the year, Shutter focuses once again on Huckleberry. And once again, her story proves to be a poignant lesson in not only the pain of the past but how growth may emerge from it.
