Even if 2012 weren't officially the Year of the Dragon (according to the Chinese zodiac), dragons would declare it their year anyway. Audiences are eating up 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' fairy tale dragons rule on TV's 'Once Upon a Time' and 'A Game of Thrones' and we're all waiting for our first glimpse of Smaug in Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' this Christmas. Seems as good a time as any to revisit our favorite fire-breathers, from Elliott to Toothless to several unnamed but still magnificent (and maleficent) beasts.
