Here’s All 50 Of This Year’s Comics Positive Posts Links


At the beginning of the year I spend a few days doing brief posts on stories I think were positive ones for comics in 2014. It helps me not enter the year full of despair. I spread them out over a few days because I was unable to get them all up on January 1, so I thought a summary post might be useful. It looks like I may have done 51 by accident, which totally makes sense for a year like 2014.
