The 2012 Rankings: David

I can’t make a best of 2012.

I mean, I hate making such lists anyway, but even if I wanted to write up a "best of" list, I have not seen enough of the films of 2012 to be able to make it in any way meaningful. Or, rather, as meaningful as a subjective list of what any one person considers “the best” can be.
Still, it feels wrong for 24 Panels not to have a list of some sort to kick 2013 off with. As such, I (David) present my rankings of the comic book films of 2012, from least to best. I’m sure some of my choices are ones that some of you will not agree with, and I know that some of my choices are ones that other members of the 24 Panels crew will not agree with, but that’s fine. With any luck, this list will do exactly what I want it to do: get a conversation going.
So, without further ado…

Preview Post: G-MEN FROM HELL

Dave and Dru return to kick off 2013 in style! Granted, said style is that of a 1950s federal agent but hey, it fits, seeing as how the duo are taking a look at the film G-Men from Hell!

Yes, you are reading the quote on that poster right.
