Poll: 2013 Eisner Award Poll (35 votes)

Hawkeye 43%
Saga 40%
Manhattan Project 9%
Prophet 3%
Fatale 6%

So these are the nominations for the best continuing series category and the winner will be selected Friday but I thought Id ask the vine who they think should win

Hnn. Unsurprisingly, the only superhero nomination is Hawkeye, and even then you'd be hard-pressed to label it a superhero book. Not saying that the nominees didn't deserve it, just making an observation. Past years seemed to have been friendlier to straight-up superhero titles.

I'm quite happy with the line up they have

@veshark: Except Daredevil i don't think there was any other incredibly good superhero series.
The past years had better superhero stories.
Which super hero series would you nominate?

Well, as you mentioned, DD. I feel both New Avengers and Batman deserved nominations, but that's just me. Again, not critiquing the choices being made here. Just noting the lack of a traditional superhero book, is all.

Saga and Hawkeye is all over the Eisners this year........

USM actually got an Eisner nomination last year I think - was quite surprised by that one.

Well Ultimate Spidy is pretty good not sure its Eisner worthy though

I'm not qualified to vote, but from what I've seen I say Hawkeye

#13 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (33099 posts) - - Show Bio

Hickman's already got one nomination no need to be greedy

#14 Posted by ImagineMan16 (466 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm really rooting for Saga. If Hawkeye wins I'll be satisfied as well, but I think Saga deserves it most

#15 Edited by Jonny_Anonymous (33099 posts) - - Show Bio

Pfft should be more votes for Fatale

#16 Posted by TDK_1997 (14724 posts) - - Show Bio

Pfft should be more votes for Fatale

Fatale is good but I think the other titles deserve the award more.

#17 Edited by Jonny_Anonymous (33099 posts) - - Show Bio

I think its the best one there but I'm Brubaker/noir fanboy

Saga will probably win....I think it is the most hyped indie comic.
I feel so bad because i don't read any of these
But i don't really want to anyway :-P

@billy_batson: I finally got the first trade. I have no idea what it was that I read.

Indestructible Hulk should've been nominated. Hope Hawkeye wins though.

Read the first trade, it was pretty interesting. Although I honestly don't know why the creator didn't use an original character instead of Prophet.

Mine too, but it's the only one of these books I've read.

@citizenbane: Funny, I could have sworn Adventure Time was on a list for Eisner's and it also had Saga and Hawkeye...

What is it basically about?

#29 Posted by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub (5024 posts) - - Show Bio

The only book I'm not reading on that list is Prophet. Guess I'll have to pick that one up. Hawkeye or Saga will probably win, you can't go wrong with either of them.

What's there not to get? It's pretty straightforward. Read it again then? :p

A sci-fi series of different Prophets (super-soldiers) on missions in the future.
