Only included X-Men of the NOW! relaunches, because of how many issues it has had out.. but Thor and Hulk would be on here as well with a couple more issues, probably.


Your 5 ran away.

I don't even read 10 titles on any kind of regular basis, but:

1. Saga (I enjoyed the first tp a lot and I think this could be the best thing BKV has ever written. I really enjoy the ideas behind the characters in the book, but even though it seems bizarre, the story reads very well.)
2. Elephantmen (2012 was the year I really got into this comic. It comes out irregularly but the collected editions are great! I'm ashamed that no one else reads or talks about this comic on this forum. The only other posters I know who read this are Royal Nonesuch and TheBass)
3. Chew (still one of the best indies out there. Everyone who has decided to stop reading Spider-Man should buy this comic instead.)
4. Morning Glories (While I think I loved this comic more last year than this year, it's still pretty solid. The artwork has been the best thing about this comic because the story's lack of any type of resolution is starting to bother me. With that said, the last trade couldn't come soon enough!)
5. Uncanny X-Force (even though I don't read this very regularly, I still think it's a solid, fun X-book and probably the only good thing Marvel has going for it.)

UXF just ended, Keb.

Well, Remender's book did. Sam Humphries is relaunching it for NOW! with a new cast, but the odds of it being even close to as good as it was are slim.

I am completely unsure on this order, but first instinct:

1. American Vampire
2. The Unwritten
3. Atomic Robo
4. Sixth Gun
5. Daredevil
6. Hawkeye, bro
7. Wonder Woman
8. Fables/Fairest (really just the same book IMMO)
9. Wolvy & the X-Men
10. Swamp Thing

Near-misses: Flash, Demon Knights, Batman, Batman & Robin, I, Vampire, Fatale, Morning Glories, Manhattan Projects, Saga, Winter Soldier, All-New X-Men, Thor, God of Thunder

1. Saga
2. The Unwritten
3. The Manhattan Projects
4. The Walking Dead
5. The Fantastic Four (Hickman's run)
6. Scalped
7. Sixth Gun
8. Hawkeye
9. Fables
10. X-Factor (I can't believe Misac is the only other poster with this title in the top 10)

Demon Knights had a real drop off in quality imo, not enough Thor or Uncanny Avengers to make a call yet

As it stands so far, the Outhouse top 10 looks like this:

1. Saga
2. American Vampire
3. Daredevil
4. Batman
5. Hawkeye
6. Wonder Woman
=7. The Unwritten
=7. Walking Dead
9. Aquaman
10. Chew


These ten are relatively far out in front, though Fables is catching up. There are others which could make it into the chart, though, so those of you who haven't done a list yet: have at it!

Altogether, sixty-nine different titles have been named so far, across a range of different publishers. That said, there are three DCU, three Image, two Marvel and two Vertigo titles in the current top 10 list. Of those, only one is a Bat-book, and precisely none have anything to do with the X-Men. Also, Hawkeye, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are in the top 10 while Spider-Man and Wolverine are not. Interesting...

X-Factor would easily make the list if not for the current arc. The book has been kind of spinning its wheels since Havok/Polaris joined up.

But I'm looking forward to the Hell on Earth War. I hope it gets back to being the awesome book it was now that the transitional period of roster change is through.
