Isn't Diamond a distributor not a publisher?

 

Wow! You've managed to pick companies I've never heard of and left off some of the best publishers in the comic world, in an attempt to alienate me from your poll!

 

I read a lot of DC currently. Wait! No, I don't! I read a lot of Grant Morrison comics that happen to be published by DC!

I'm not sure if I read more Fantagraphics, Top Shelf or Drawn & Quarterly....They're all so great, and I read so many books published by all three.

I'm also a big fan of Pantheon Press, but they do a lot of stealing from Fatagraphics and Top Shelf. I've bought every comic they've released so far, actually.

But, I can only vote for one of the 4 I mentioned above!

Can I add them? Surely, you understand I meant no slight to you and your reading preferences.

No, I can't. I've failed you, Christian. And for that, I am deeply sorry.

 

I sound sarcastic--and I am--but I regret not including them.

 

Which ones haven't you heard of?

I'll have to go with fantagraphics based on the high quality of the stories and art. The trouble is getting a hold of them in my neck of the woods. I kind of have to blind buy on their website.

HA!

 

You left off Oni, Slave Labour, and Alternative Press too.

Amongst others....

 

I haven't heard of (and I'm still sure that Diamond is a distributor and Spawn is an Image comic, so I'm including them):

 

Spawn [ 0 ] [0.00%]

Diamond [ 0 ] [0.00%]

Dreamwave [ 0 ] [0.00%]

CPM [ 0 ] [0.00%]

Action Planet

Used to be a time when the answer was Vertigo.

 

But with Ennis, Ellis, Gaiman and Morrison writing over at Marvel things have changed.

 

Wildstorm has a few decent books also so them and Avatar could be #2.

my answer now is vertigo.my answer later in the year will most likely be wildstorm.

 

i cannot fucking wait till the relaunch.

 

by the way does anyone else know if it was avatar that published a 2 or 3 issue series about some kind of horrific nuclear apocalypse thing at a drive in? if it helps it was black and white and i believe the covers were by jacen burrows,what the fuck was the title?

DC, post a suprisingly enjoyable Infinite crisis and 52, plus with 7 Soldiers, All Star Superman and a signifigant Batman relaunch.

I'm with DC, it's seems geniunely exciting.

It's also the new home of Morrison.

 

Marvel continue to gipp me with every summer special and DD used to be my favourite title.

Their X-Men relaunch (the same month as Batman-ahem) wont top DC's Batman.

 

I still really like the Wildstorm universe though, can't wait for the coming of Morrison.

The home of Ex-Machina, Planetary and Astro City.

 

Vertigo are a shadow of what they used to be, and they were never as good as the pre Vertigo days.

 

I wont say that DC is better than many independant publishers, but it is the one I read/buy the most consistantly.

 

Jingle of the day?

It's DC for me!

(Amaze Ink/Slave Labour Graphics and Sirius both seem to be missing as well.)

 

Out of that lot, probably Vertigo.

Should I redo this poll then? I'm not as well read, comicly speaking, as some of you and I want this poll to be accurate. Mr. McMahon, a little help here?

DC all the way, baay-beaay!!!

 

 

Vertigo used to be te answer, back in the day, but now, apart from HB, Fables and Y, with Lucifer gone, it's slim pickens.

Christian--

 

I thought Spawn was its own label now.

 

I have no idea!

Don't worry about your poll Spider.

I doubt anyone is going to come here really wanting to vote for Oni over every other publisher, and I doubt anyone is going to vote for some of these publishers that I'm not even sure are publishers.

You probably could've made this poll with just DC, Marvel, Vertigo, WildStorm, and Fantagraphics and people would've been fine with it.

Jingle of the day No.2

 

I'll second that. Vertigo is looking thin these days. My #2 is Drawn and Quarterly. I really like Optic Nerve even though it seems at times like it was made for mopey teenage girls.

It isn't just Keeyah: I've been reading more Marvel of late than I have since I was in primary school, to be honest.

I still say by year end, Wildstorm will be the bomb. I'm sticking by my choice as the one person who picked WS.
