Best-Reviewed Comic Book/Graphic Novel Movies 2018

DC’s Aquaman may have dominated the late-December (and early January) box office, but for the critics it was another dominating year for Marvel Studios, with the company taking three spots in this category. And then even the non-MCU Deadpool 2 made the grade. The Death of Stalin, based on a French graphic novel, made its appearance to give the category a kick in the tights. If you’re wondering where Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse and Incredibles 2 are, find them over in the Animation category.
