The Beat’s Annual Survey, 2007 Edition, Part 1

Every year we invite a selection of creators, publishers, retailers, commentators and other comics observers to give us a quick look at the year that was, and a hint of the year that may be. This year we had a huge response, so we’ll be breaking it up in two parts. Our format is simple, we ask but three questions:

What was the biggest story in comics in 2006?
What will be the biggest story in comics in 2007?
What guilty pleasure (of any kind) are you looking forward to in 2007?

So without any further ado, here’s the survey. And keep your eyes peeled throughout for some news hints, as well.
