It's time for the week late moderator-approved comic poll!

The Rules

Using the Voting Ballot below, cast your votes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each category (if possible, but if not skip it!).

When voting I need the following format ****VERY IMPORTANT!****

  • For Comics: [Title's name] [Issue Number]
  • For Characters: [Character's name] - [Title they appeared in's name] [Issue Number]

For example:

  • Justice League #1
  • Batman - Detective Comics #1

Things to keep in mind:

  • You may vote for the same Favorite character twice (or more) just as long as you list them in different issues.
  • The Hero/villain section depends on the comic in question. So Deathstroke can be considered a Hero in his own book. However, if he fought The Shade in the Shade's book, then Deathstroke would be considered a Villain
  • It's important to list a character with a SINGLE issue because all votes for a character contribute to The Best Comic of the Month!

Reminder: Voting is ONLY for comics in LAST month (meaning JUNE 2012)

Grading Scale:

  • 1st place votes are given 3pts
  • 2nd place votes are given 2pts
  • 3rd place votes are given 1 pt

The 5 highest will be winners of each category. The comic that receives the most votes in total will be declared The Best Comic of The Month!

Voting Ends: July 11th (exact time will be specified closer to date)

At any time until July 11th, you may edit your vote. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! :)

@The Poet: Will you be doing this next month to? Is this going to be a regular thing?

#8 Posted by The Poet (8336 posts) - - Show Bio

@Katie24: if Fate allows me, then yes.

I've tried to keep this as regular as possible since February (when I took over from Cosmo who started it back in sept.). if it's not published the last Wednesday of the month in question then it will published the week following (like this month). However, that week change only happens when I'm either busy with projects or (in this case) I was canoeing down a river with not a thought of CV on my mind...

Favorite Male Hero

1st: Batman, from issues 7-10 he was incredibly durable mentally, emotionally and physically, combatting foes he was terrified of, and beating them, saving much of the city of Gotham along with his friends and students alike, even Jason Todd.

2nd: Deathstroke, he's just badass. He's always got an answer to everything, and no challenge is too daunting for him.

3rd: Red Robin, putting up with Damian Wayne and the Teen Titans together can't be easy.

Favorite Female Hero

1st: Supergirl, she's pretty awesome so far, and she's got an interesting story to her.

2nd: Batgirl, she's a decent character, but I just don't love her for some reason, as much as I want; she seems... I don't know, a little bit braggish? About her ability to remember everything. That also seems somewhat unrealistic, I know a couple people with eidetic memories, and it's not even possible to remember EVERYTHING that happens; they usually remember everything in a certain area, like what they read, or TV shows, or something. I just don't love that aspect of her development. She also seems less professional than the rest of the Bat clan, and I suppose I appreciate the Bat clan for it's iron-hard professional streak, and Barbara just seems like she's the least professional and serious about it all. She's hard for me to enjoy, but I still appreciate her more than other female heroes that I've read about so far.

3rd: none

Favorite Male Villain

1st: "Lincoln March", Bruce Wayne's "brother", was excellently written and is incredibly intriguing, and is pretty scheming and brilliant in his own way, just like Bruce.

2nd: William Cobb, he's an excellent counterpart and fun bit of backstory for Dick Grayson, really enjoyed it.

3rd: Wolverine, in regards to the AvX and how he's going against the X-men, he can be considered a villain. He was very interesting in the comics and I didn't think he had the brains to pull off a double-agent job. Well done.

Favorite Female Villain

1st: Cat Woman, can be considered a villain, but that may even be stretching it a bit. Sexy, sleek, and yet she still wants to help people when she can, she's not your ordinary cat burglar, she combines grace, beauty and danger, with a caring, almost wounded sense of morality, that lends lots of character to her comics and role in the DC universe.

2nd: none

3rd: none

I know it's mostly all Batman-centric, but that's mostly what I'm reading for now! So sue me! :P
