Never in the history of the internet has a four-digit number been associated with so much going so wrong, so quickly. Every other week it seemed like the political cartoons were stocked with beloved musicians, entertainers and other inspiring figures standing at this pearly gate or that.
But it wasn't all bad. In fact, here at GoComics we spent the past year preparing for something quite good: the new GoComics.
On balance, maybe 2016 wasn't the worst year ever? Maybe it was just a memorable one full of highs and lows?
Here's a taste of some of our most-read blog posts of 2016 while we continue working on the new GC. We'll let you be the judge.
With so many changes in 2016 -- not all of them particularly welcome -- we aim to make GoComics a bright part of the new year. Stick with us into 2017. The best is yet to come.
