  1. Saga (Image)
  2. Daredevil (Marvel)
  3. Batman (DC)
  4. American Vampire (Vertigo)
  5. The Unwritten (Vertigo)
  6. Hawkeye (Marvel)
  7. The Walking Dead (Image)
  8. Aquaman (DC)
  9. Wonder Woman (DC)
  10. Invincible (Image)
  11. Fables (Vertigo)
  12. Wolverine and the X-Men (Marvel)
  13. Uncanny X-Force (Marvel)
  14. The Manhattan Projects (Image)
  15. X-Factor (Marvel)
  16. The Sixth Gun (Oni Press)
  17. Thor: God of Thunder (Marvel)
  18. Conan The Barbarian (Dark Horse)
  19. Earth 2 (DC)
  20. Indestructible Hulk (Marvel)


With seven titles in the top twenty, Marvel is the big winner in this poll, with Image and DC tied at four titles apiece, Vertigo on three and Dark Horse and Oni bringing up the rear with one title each.  All said, one hundred separate books were nominated, including titles such as Sweet Tooth, Revival, Wolverine and Worlds' Finest that only managed one point each in the rankings.

With Marvel's Marvel Now! initiative fresh in everyone's mind, it's probably not surprising that the publisher won so comprehensively.  That said, the prominance of such non-traditional fare as Saga (the winner by an extremely comfortable margin and The Unwritten can only be good for the industry as a whole.  Here's hoping that 2013 brings yet more excellence and less in the way of cheap sensation for the sake of quick publicity.
