11:33am: ACT-I-VATE'S BEST OF 2011
ACT-I-VATE asked me to weigh in with my Top 5 favorite COMIX and Top 5 favorite ANYTHING ELSE in 2011.

I can never do these Top 5 Lists justice. So, rather than go insane rifling through my shelves, boxes, and towering stacks of stuff that would make a seasoned hoarder cringe, I decided to restrict myself to knee-jerk reacting my Top 5 favorite comics and non-comics in 5-minutes. Any one of these items either made me laugh, cry, stopped my heart, made me jealous, made me think different, or just gave me the steam to get through the next page on my art table:
