But probably THE best comic I read in 2013 is Fury: My War Gone By. The life story of Nick Fury as told by Garth Ennis. This book should have been a giant downer (the frame of the story is Fury recording his war history into an old reel-to-reel with a pistol always in reach -- presumably to use on himself once he hits the "stop" button), but Ennis' story is so well told and realized in this series that the ending becomes a genuinely beautiful and uplifting moment. The series is unmistakably dark and cynical at times but this is easily his best ending since Preacher.
