In 2013, our microblog of geekery and gadgetry (follow us at popsugartech.tumblr.com [1]!) celebrated its first year in the Tumbleverse. You — our favorite Tumblenauts — surprised us with what you liked and reblogged most this year, whether it was the Golden Girls of Justice, mini Spider-Man, or Comic-Con's hottest geekthrobs. Scroll down for POPSUGAR Tech's most popular Tumblrs of 2013 and let us know which was the most reblog worthy in the comments.
