Best of Comics 2014 Complete List

So I have finally narrowed down my “best of” list for 2014!  It was a battle, and I’m sure that I am going to regret choices at some point, but here it is.  I am starting with the nominations categories that were used by Comic Geek Speak for their awards show, and then I added a few afterward and then some “honorable mentions.”  If you have any thoughts, or any that you think I totally missed, leave a comment!
