By now it’s likely that most of you will have stopped for the Christmas break – a time to sit back, put your feet up, relax and ponder over the year that was. Here at Comics Anonymous HQ however, we have been doing some pondering for 23 days now – and what a year it has been. Assuming you’ve not got some last minute present shopping to do, why not check out all 23 days so far using the “Bestof2011” tag in each of the posts. As for today, Linsay continues on from her discovery of Moon Knight, to another Marvel character that caught her eye this year.

Another title I discovered on holiday which left a great impression was Daken: Dark Wolverine. I only picked this up after reading Moon Knight and realising he was featuring in an issue of Daken. Daken is a bittersweet highlight for me as we’ve recently been told that the book is to be cancelled. This is a real shame as Daken is really one of Marvel’s most modern, forward thinking and edgy comic books. His history is totally Marvel A-list – he’s Logan’s son for goodness sake! But in his own book he is more that that. Daken is a highly complex individual where nothing is as it seems. A highly skilled manipulator he uses fear, power, sex and friendship to achieve what he thinks he wants. There’s more going on under the surface too and I’m more than disappointed that we won’t continue to see him develop in his own book.
