It's been awhile: List your top 5 books!

Postby habitual » Thu Jun 06, 2013 12:47 pm

It occurred to me that for the first time ever my top 5 list would only have one book from the big two on it:

1. Saga
2. The Unwritten
3. The Manhattan Projects
4. East of West
5. The Sixth Gun

Fables is still in contention, but, I'm going to wait to see how the most recent crossover goes.

Marvel really needs to get it's act together with their Max line or whatever is going on with it. Hickman shouldn't need to go to Image to write his two best books.

You're missing out on some good stuff, especially from Image.

One book I need to give an honorable mention too is Scalped.

As always, love lists and seeing what you people are doing!

For me:

1. New Avengers
2. Thor, God of Thunder
3. Avengers
4. The Hypernaturals
5. Hawkeye

I'm really disappointed that Aquaman has tailed off in recent months. I'm truly disappointed in the New 52's version of the Martian Manhunter, just how...cold and vicious he is, in Justice League of America, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit that for some bizarre reason that I can't pin down, I've actually enjoyed that book far more than I expected...but not enough to guarantee that I'm going to keep reading it.

I say this because, if I wind up dropping those two books, I will finally drop Justice League and Green Lantern. With the looming cancellation of Legion of Super-Heroes, that would mean for the first time since I generated a pull list in the early 1980s, I will not have a single DC book on it.
