How many words is this worth? More than a thousand, but, really, it's unquantifiable genius.'s best news graphics don't just illustrate or elaborate a story -- they become the story. Using a complex graphical algorithm that attracts, confuses, amuses, delights and then intrigues readers, these bizarre Photoshop Frankensteins can add surprising appeal to a small-town news story. They're the only reason I followed this summer's rabies outbreaks in Hall County or knew about various North Georgia manhunts and car crashes.

But since this is Best of Atlanta week, let's review ANG's hits of 2008. The top 15 are after the jump, in very little particular order.
