November 1, 2012 1:08 pm My vote is for Saga. It's imaginative and unlike anything else out there, but I can easily relate to the characters and have been deeply invested in them since issue 1, page 1. Here's why Saga beats the other front runners: Daredevil - Boring if you're not already invested in the character. I was on board for the first 12 or so issues, but found it started being the last of my weekly haul that I'd read. I think this is because I was never given a reason to care about Matt Murdock. Batman - I'm as big a fan of Snyder's Batman stuff as anyone. His Detective Comics run was amazing. But what I'm finding lately is that he's too dependent on dialog to move the story forward. Page after page of talking heads and huge word balloons gets boring after a while (cough - Court of Owls finale - cough). Give me some visual storytelling! Hawkeye - I'm absolutely LOVING this run, too. But let's hold off on crowning it king until we see what the fill-in artists do with it. I think Aja's storytelling will be sorely missed. X-Force - Again, this is always at the top of my read pile and definitely comes in a very close second for me. The stakes are always as high as they get and the characters are so clearly defined you can't help but love them. Only reason Saga beats it out for me is the level imagination and creativity in the pages of Saga. Staples' art is amazing.
October 25, 2012 11:42 am I thought it was funny that Deadshot was using a sight on his rifle. I always kind of assumed that's what the eyepiece was for. Or am I the only one who found that odd?

September 6, 2012 11:04 am Totally agree. That was a brilliant piece of comic book storytelling.
August 6, 2012 1:38 pm So excited to see Cloonan on this, even if it's just a fill-in.
