I recently resurrected CV's Top 100 Spider-man Universe Stories List, so now I'm resurrecting the monthly opinion poll where you the community decides what is/was the best of the month!

We're skipping over April just for now (maybe we'll go back...don't know right now...) and at a slow moment I'll post the Best of the month results of March (boy we are behind...).

Like before, each vote ranking is worth different points (1st place = 3pts, 2nd place = 2pts, 3rd place = 1 pt) and the top 5 of each category will be declared The Best of The Month!

Example Ballot

for comics...

Best Cover Artwork

  • 1st Batgirl #25
  • 2nd Darkwing Duck #19
  • 3rd Snarked #13

for characters...

Favorite Male Hero

  • 1st Alfred Pennyworth - Batman's Butler #1
  • 2nd DW - Darkwing Duck #19
  • 3rd

Reminder: Voting is ONLY for comics in LAST month (meaning MAY 2013)

Voting Ends: June 11th, 2013 (exact time will be specified closer to date), but this means you have a week to vote!

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

@the_poet: Can I vote that Deadpool was the best male hero?

#2 Posted by The Poet (8304 posts) - - Show Bio

@banestrokelobogrundybatarrow: sure, but you can't just say "deadpool" you have to cite what comic he was the best in for the specified month.

For Example: (You'll have to forgive me because I don't read that much current Marvel so I'll jump back to April for this) you could say "Deadpool - Deadpool Killustrated #4" if you liked that appearence of him (you'll have to forgive that example as I don't remember what number they are on his ongoing series...). The character catagories aren't like top 100 lists where they are for all time they are for the specified month and for a specific appearence. I hope that makes sense...

@banestrokelobogrundybatarrow: so, are you sure you are done with voting? I don't judge anyone's choices (you can vote for as many categories as you feel comfortable with), are you sure you can't vote for more than just one? You voted for Deadpool in Deadpool #10 - Eight Legs to Kick You. I don't know what your pull list is like but if you voted for best hero then wouldn't that also mean you could vote for some of the creator related categories too like writing, art and covers?

Like I said, I don't judge, but I'm just curious...

@sinestro_gl: thanks for voting

@scouts1998: first off, thanks for voting.

Few though:

  1. one of us will need to change your votes for those creators in the writing section. Easy fix, but we don't deal with the creators we deal with their creations (and thus honoring them by showing why they were the best of the month)
  2. jumping down a little bit: your votes for male villains are confusing:

1st Sinestro

2nd Black hand

when were they villains in the month of May? To my knowledge, Black hand's only appearance is when he is decomposing after Hal took away his Black Lantern ring. He's in one frame and that's it. Few months ago you could say he was a villain but I don't know about this month...and Sinestro hasn't techically been a villain in (what issue of GL are we on now?) 20 months. If you voted for the "First Lantern" I would agree, but Sinestro was not a villain issue 20 of GL (he fought against the villain...)

Now, that being said, you could argue to me that since Sinestro SPOILER! killed almost all the guardians that he could be considered a villain, but considering the other things he did in the issue I wouldn't personally rank him the 1st highest villain when we have First Lantern in that same issue "with the intent to reach into the fabric of history and unwind it for [his] own twisted purposes" (to quote gauntlet). But I shouldn't try to sway your votes...I am more wondering your reasoning behind them...
