Comic Book of the Year 2010

Batgirl swooped back into the cosmic comic consciousness bigtime this year. The entire supporting cast of the various Batman series got a fresh shot at center stage with Bruce Wayne dead for most of 2010. Now the dust has settled, I’d say that Batwoman (who is unrelated to Batgirlā€”think Wonder Woman and Wonder Girl, not Superman and Superboy; that really should be the basis of an SAT question sometime) is the breakout “new” character while Batgirl is the one who’s truly reaffirmed her place in the Bat universe.
