Wooo!!! BATWOMAN!!! BEST COMIC OF THE MONTH!!!!  Loved the book! Everything about the book are 5/5.
Hawkeye should have won more votes :) the BOOK was soo good. I Guess CV has more DC fans than Marvel.
PS. Dat Wonder Woman pic is  Sexayyyyy :p

Pretty good spread of titles this month. DC seems to be virtually dominating the character categories though, interesting.

Wow, Batman didn't get 1st in anything, that's amazing lol

Well, in the past we've seen DC really dominate. In tabulating the votes I found it interesting that we saw the introduction of a number of series we had never seen in the poll before (the regular title of Wolverine for example was included in the votes which has never happened).

I kind of have to disagree with you on the character spread. I thought it was more open than previous polls. The fact that Spidey won is monumental based on our previous polls. This is the first time a non-DC/Verticgo character has won best male hero. Batman has won multimple times, Superman won the first time we had that catagory and then we had the few months where Swamp thing or Constantine won.

@MadeinBangladesh: you said CV has more DC fans than Marvel. Going to show you something:

DC talley
The Marvel talley (note the places I colored orange so you can see where voters were unable to vote anymore for comparison)

Just an observation in comparison. However, it is a vast improvement from previous polls. It's unclear if these results are because are greater audience with this being pinned or what...We shall have to see what Sept looks like to compare...

No Silhouette? For shame, comic vine... (Still the best in my book)

Anyhoo, here's to another year! ^.^

Nice too see who won. I however can't believe Harper Row a new character came second in best dc female hero over people like Batwoman and Captain Marvel

#10 Posted by The Poet (8646 posts) - - Show Bio

@cosmo111687: cheers!

@TheAcidSkull: anytime

@johnkmccubbin91: pretty much it was how people voted I mean Row got 12 points (just so you know I won't explain how it was divided into voters but if you're interested you can look it up in the voting poll) while Captain Marvel got 9 with Batwoman getting 8 points. Wonder Woman was the clear victor with 21.5 (the point 5 was caused by someone voting for JL WW and the regular title WW in the same vote so I had to split it).

Looks like Wonder Woman being portrayed by Kim Kardashian. I agree about the Batwoman love. JHWIII is a fave. And Bloody Mary even won best femme vill, but that is probably because no one can ever think of one.

Row came in so high because she was in Batman's top book. It's not Row. It never has been. It's Batman. Sorry... I didn't mean to go Liefeld on you.

Now I feel the need to sketch someone without feet.

@knighthood: Lol. He did have a fair rant at Snyder. I understood that would be the reason as well just cant believe it happened though

@The Poet: Yeah I wasn't saying I didn't believe it was the case I just couldn't believe how people voted for it

#13 Posted by Mucklefluga (2646 posts) - - Show Bio

I thought Hawkeye #1 was average TBH, i'm not a big fan of that art.

Yay, creep was in the top 5 for a few of them.

Why is there no X-Men comics in it, except Gambit. There also no Hit-girl or Witchblade comics. How come?

Why? because not enough people voted for those titles. You have to remember that the Best of the Month poll reflects the oppinions of the voters. I can't tell you why the voters in this poll did not suport the above mentioned titles. Maybe they don't read those series (Don't know...have to ask them...). I can only speak myself in saying I don't read those titles.

Of course if you think those titles are the best, then I would invite you to vote in two weeks (the 26th or the last wednesday of the month to the 3rd of October)
