This year was another in a decade brimming with awesome talent and fiercely entertaining work from all areas of the comic book industry. A small number of staffers attempting to identify one or two titles as the best of a stellar year like 2008 would be a disservice to CBR readers, so this year we polled every single CBR contributor to create our list of the 100 Best Comics of 2008, which we will unveil twenty items at-a-time over the next five days.

If you missed items #100-61, check them out: Part 1, Part II.

FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF THREE WORLDS #1 (Cover A) (Aug 2008)

FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF THREE WORLDS #1 (Cover B) (Aug 2008)
45. FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF 3 WORLDS
Written by Geoff Johns
Illustrated by George Pérez & Scott Koblish
Publisher: DC Comics

One of the better series spinning out of “Final Crisis,” Pérez’s artwork is better than ever and Johns’ depiction of Superboy-Prime as an annoying, self-absorbed super-brat is pitch-perfect. With the teaming up of three different Legions of Super-Heroes from throughout continuity and the return of Sodam Yat, the conclusion of this miniseries is something no fan will want to miss. - Staff Writer Jami Philbreck

I defy anyone to come up with a better pitch than Superboy-Prime going one-thousand years into the future to murder every member of all three Legions of Super-Heroes in the most horribly violent ways imaginable, as depicted by the preeminent superhero artist of the age, George Pérez. Talk about "meta." - Staff Writer Andy Khouri
