I keep forgetting to vote on this. Will try and do so for this month.

Posted by RustyRoy

I read only 4 comics so I don't think I'm qualified to vote.

@batmannflash @battle_forum_junkie @donfelipe @kfhrfdu_89_76k @kilomac29 @lifeboy @madeinbangladesh @manneffest @tomlikesfries @v_scarlotte_rose thanks all for voting!

Hope you can join us next time from Nov 27 - Dec 4th.

In other news: it has been suggested that next month we do "Best Supporting Character" again. would you vote in that category? or do any of you have a category you want to see before that one? You guys get to decide. Majority rules (and you don't have to have voted this month to pick btw)

I would never say that you are not qualified to vote. I might be remembering wrong, but I think I started out with 4 comics on my pull list when I voted on this when this poll was first starting out. I mean, in voting you have 3 slots for each category so you have 1 more than is needed (and you can skip categories).

Okay, I'll vote in the next one and thanks.

This was sweet, I look forward to it every month, and it never disappoints :D Also I'm down for the "Best Supporting Character of the Month", that would be really cool!

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

Best homage covers.

Also, some of my votes actually counted! Cool.

Posted by EnigmaLantern

Even when I don't take part I still love seeing these polls, look forward to them every month. Nice job @the_poet

@the_poet: Best Supporting Character sounds good to me. Would also be interested in a best zero year issue, but I'm good either way.

keep up the good work on this post.

Best Female Villain is my fav category. This month was kinda tough because duela, shadow weaver and adora's role's were msotly nonexistant this time around. But atleast I got tinderbox up there. She is such an apathetic spoiled brat! Love it!

Too bad my Jennifer Blood didnt make it. She has got to be close to taking the lead for the highest bodycount by now :)

I didn't get all my october books, which is why i didn't vote. Curse you economics!

keep up the good work on this post.

Best Zero Year issue would probably be too publisher specific (I try to be fair to all publishers though if you ever compiled the votes you would see how many more people vote for DC and how many skip the Marvel category.

That being said, if you wanted to see what people's fav. zero year issue is, we could do a mini unofficial category next edition which wouldn't be included in the op template or the results OP, but I would put in the comments section as a sort of question. I am always fascinated by opinions so I wouldn't be against it. However, that would only be done if people want it/support it.

@the_poet: Yeah, I definitely understand its definitely too DC-centric. I'm mostly just curious about other's opinions on the ZY tie-ins. It seemed like when they were first announced people seemed vocally opposed, but the issues seem pretty solid so far and have gotten mostly positive reviews.
