This Year’s Finest 2015: The Most Memorable Characters of 2015

NBC’s year-end coverage kicks into full swing this week — yep, it’s list making time. Today  I am offering my third annual look at which characters made the strongest impressions in 2015.

All entries are listed in alphabetical order.

Darth Vader 4 Salvador Larroca

0-0-0: This was probably one of the easiest pitches that Kieron Gillen has ever made: “evil 3-CPO”. The concept sells itself, right? What elevates the character above gimmick though is how well-executed it is. Despite some notable differences in ethical programming, 0-0-0 is very much a twin of the galaxy’s most famous protocol droid: deferential, thorough, proud of a job well-done and a bit cowering at times. Gillen evokes the mannerisms of 3-CPO so well that the reader cannot help but hear 0-0-0’s dialogue in Anthony Daniels’ familiar voice. This quality makes 0-0-0’s gleeful remarks about torture all the more chilling. It is also classic Gillen.

Valiant did spend plenty of time yesterday discussing properties besides Bloodshot. They started with a plug for the conclusion of Book of Death arriving at the end of the month.  They promised that it would have major reverberations throughout the Valiant Universe. While this may sound like the typical boilerplate Event language, Valiant’s track record backs up previous claims. Harbinger Wars, Armor Hunters & The Valiant all sparked future stories in ways that never felt gimmicky. They did shift the status quo. So fans were told to keep an eye on The Eternal Warrior, who just happens to have a new series launching soon.

Indubitable Issues and Pull List (9/30/15)

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Tyler’s Recommendations: 
Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses #8
“I jumped onto the Stray Bullets train earlier this year, and have enjoyed every issue. Even without the context of reading past issues the story being told is compelling. David Lapham has built a crazy world inhabited by fully realized characters, and they’re all captivating to follow. I highly recommended this comic for any serious crime-drama fan.”
