2017, more than recent years, has had its fair share of memorable comic book moments. DC, Marvel, Image and more continued to bring their A-game, which not only made the task of ranking the year's best hits an arduous one, but also - as is today's topic - its greatest moments.
It was a year of life and death, proposals and break-ups, returns and departures and much, much more. As a collective, readers have had their hearts ripped out, melted and launched into the stratosphere by writers largely unafraid to take risks, telling stories defined more-so by their characters, than by the convoluted machinations of some hair-brained evildoer.
Indeed, character-driven stories have dominated the medium this year, giving fans moments to dread, embrace, love and hate, with most involving the industry's most popular heroes too.
It was a year where the Big Two certainly weren't afraid to take risks, and while the year might impart a divisive impression amongst its readers, there's no denying that 2017 was an exciting one for comics.
