It's no secret we give Marvel and DC a lot of attention here at Comic Vine. They're by far the most popular in the industry and obviously news surrounding them tends to generate the biggest discussions. That said, we do try our best to give the other publishers as much love as possible, and this week, I figured I'd dedicate the Question of the Week to them. While many of them are quite successful and technically not "indie," I thought it would be easiest to refer to them all as such.. you know, just for simplicity's sake. So, we compiled a poll with some of the best non-Marvel/DC books out there and gave you all until this morning to cast your vote. The poll is now locked and, as many expected, SAGA stood victorious with a narrow lead.
Honestly, I doubt anyone is surprised with the outcome here. Naturally, everyone won't agree with the verdict, but there's no denying how massive Brian K. Vaughan's ongoing world has become. Consistently receiving 5-star reviews (except for one 4-star, but that's still quite good), SAGA has been deemed "one of the best books in the business" by staff writer Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring. Diving into a fascinating universe and expanding upon deep and hugely interesting characters, SAGA is one of the most unique reading experiences currently on the stands.
Here's the poll results. We intended to have FATALE on the list, but due to human error (aka me forgetting to add it), it was sadly left off. That said, the final option was there for a reason and it still received a decent amount of votes (though, clearly not enough to alter the outcome).
- Chew: 5%
- Clone: 1%
- Deathmatch: 1%
- East of West: 4%
- Five Weapons: 0% (this fills me with sadness)

- Mind The Gap: 1%
- Saga: 20%
