Today, many Viners in the United States will be stuffing their faces with massive quantities of food. They'll likely be joined by friends and family and, when they have a moment to speak, some of them may reflect on the year and say what they're grateful for. We all know life can throw plenty of obstacles your way, so it's helpful to just take a breather and think about all of the good things you have going on. While we're sure many of you have a lot to be thankful for when it comes to life in general, we'd like to keep it topical here and focus on the one thing we all adore: comic book characters.
This week, we wanted to know what this year offered that you truly appreciated. A certain creative team? A movie? A specific comic book? Are you just happy your favorite character wasn't killed off? The list had quite a few options and now, after a swift two days of voting, the results are in. Well, it turns out most voters said they were thankful for a specific comic book series.
Obviously the responses in the poll thread listed everything from a unique collectible to a specific publisher. However, after taking a closer look at the two pages of discussion, there was A LOT of love for Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's BATMAN, Man of Steel, Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino's GREEN ARROW, and Marvel's latest big event by Jonathan Hickman, INFINITY. Check out the complete poll results below.
- A specific comic book series 38%
- A specific comic book movie or TV show 23%
- A specific publisher 9%
- A specific creative team 8%
- A specific big event 8%
- A specific comic book video game 6%
- A favorite character not getting killed 4%
- A specific character's role 3%
- A specific comic book collectible (figure, statue, etc) 2%
- A specific cosplay 0%
Ultimately, it's safe to say 2013 offered a whole lot to love when it comes to the evergrowing world of comic book characters. But what did you vote for and why, Viners? Speak your mind below!
And to everyone who celebrates it: have a filling and fun Thanksgiving!
