Here we are, back from Christmas and ready to resume the countdown of the best and worst of 2005. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, and are still enjoying time with family and friends!

BEST #7: She-Hulk by Dan Slott
There was no female character that captured my imagination this year like She-Hulk. Writer Dan Slott brings a sense of joy and excitement to a formerly second tier character. From getting kicked out of Avengers Mansion to her adventures with a new career at a specialist law firm, She-Hulk has never been more compelling. When the series took a brief hiatus after Avenges Dissembled I was angry, so it was the best present on earth when the series came back this Winter. I can hardly wait to see what happens next with Jen and her rich cast of supporting characters.

WORST: No Liberty Meadows This Year.
As I have earlier whined about in a previous blog entry, I am heartbroken that there hasn't been any new Liberty Meadows this year. Brandy, Frank, and the lively critters at Liberty Meadows always made my day. I hope to see them back in comic book form soon, but for now will have to put the lack of availability down in the worst column.
