This shift allowed me to discover a plethora of riveting series, from which I’ve curated a list of my top ten favorites and three honorable mentions.

Notably, ‘Somna’ almost clinched the top spot on my list, with its blend of historical horror and eroticism, coupled with thematic depth that left a lasting impression on me.

As we wrap up our year in review, we eagerly anticipate the arrival of several exciting volumes slated for release in 2024. ‘The Sandman’ and Alan Moore’s ‘Swamp Thing’ stand out as titles that promise to enthrall readers with their rich narratives and captivating worlds. We also continue our journey with ‘Berserk,’ a dark fantasy series that has captivated us with its intricate storytelling.

Our conversation is not limited to retrospection; we extend an invitation to our audience to join us as we explore these new titles.
