1ST PLACE WINNER:
Deadly Class #7; written by Rick Remender; pencils by Wes Craig; colors by Lee Loughridge; published by Image Comics (26 points)

2ND PLACE FINISHER:
God Hates Astronauts #1; written by Ryan Browne; pencils by Ryan Browne; colors by Jordan Boyd; published by Image Comics (24 points)

3RD PLACE FINISHER:
Southern Bastards #4; written by Jason Aaron; pencils by Jason Latour; colors by Jason Latour; published by Image Comics (16 points)

Here's How It Works
In the last week of the month (or earlier, if you're confident about your choices), any GAF member can send me a private message with their personal picks for the three best single issues released that month, from any publisher. These picks should be arranged in order of rank -- first, second, and third place -- and each ranking will be worth a specific point value. A first place ranking for a comic is worth 5 points; a second place is worth 3 points; a third place, 2 points. Then before next month's COMICS! OT goes live, I'll tally the results and point values from each ballot, and post the top three overall winners in the next OP as last month's, GAF-approved, best of the best. Then, maybe at the end of the year, we'll have a showdown between the year's top finishers or something similar.

A Sample Ballot
This is an example of how a sample ballot submitted by you might look. You don't have to use this formatting but I do ask that, however you send it to me, you are CLEAR on which comics you are voting for and in what order they are ranked.

Average GAF Member said:
1st Place: "Super-Fun Team Adventures" #14 (Mystery Comics; story by Jack Johnson, art by John Jackson) [worth 5 points.]
2nd Place: "Children's Bedtime Stories, Only With Nudity and Cursing" #69 (Happy Puppy Publishing; story by Jane Doe, art by John Doelner) [worth 3 points.]
3rd Place: "Grimdark, Extreme, and McDarkerson" #474 (Amazing Comics; story & art by Smitty Smithengen) [worth 2 points.]

The Voting Rules
1. Only single issues released that month are to be considered for voting; no trade collections, and no "just caught up" considerations for issues released one/two/however many months ago. Sorry if this excludes you from the voting process, trade-only readers and mail-order folk. I didn't see any other way.
2. Each GAF member is allowed one ballot, and once that ballot has been cast you are done for the month. If an issue comes out and you think it's the best comic you've ever read or will ever read, but you already cast your vote the week before, that's too bad. In other words, there are no take-backs so VOTE THOUGHTFULLY.
3. Three comics per ballot, and no more. You could send me a list of the ten best comics that month, with full paragraph summaries on why you ranked them in what order; but in the end, I'm only going to tally points for the top three and ignore the rest. You CAN pick just one book as the best that month... but that one vote is still worth only 5 points.
4. No ties on the ballots, please. You have to pick three comics as the best that month, and you have to rank them "1st, 2nd, 3rd" so that I can assign points to each. If you're torn between two issues of two different series as the best that month, and you can't decide which one you loved more than the other, TRY.
5. To make things a bit easier on me when it comes to making the OP, I'm establishing a deadline for casting ballots of 6pm Eastern Standard Time on the last day of the month. You can cast your ballot at any time during the month that you wish; however once that deadline has passed, any ballots sent to me will be ignored.
6. Again, to make things easier I would prefer that your votes be cast via private message sent to me, rather than through an open post in the OT. In addition to keeping the voting process a secret, using the PM method means I won't have to search through thread pages for someone's vote posted as an afterthought to an unrelated discussion.

Failure to comply with any of the above rules MAY result in your ballot getting thrown out.

Other rules and stipulations may follow, but for now we'll roll with these for the first round and see how it goes. Have fun voting!



Spoilers. In the age of digital comics, they are increasingly becoming an issue in these threads, as the drive to be first to discuss the week's releases overrides common sense and good posting etiquette. So over the coming weeks and months, the members of Comic GAF will be collaborating on and will eventually be implementing a system of general rules for avoiding spoilers on new comics in the Comics OT thread. But for now, please abide by the temporary guidelines outlined below. And remember, you are being watched and judged by your peers.

1. Discussion of newly released comics that involves specific plot details shall be accompanied at all times by the appropriate use of the
tag function.
2. Direct posting of full-page images from newly released comics using the tags is strictly prohibited, and outgoing links to such should be accompanied by the appropriate spoiler warnings.
3. Direct posting of images or spoilers from comics that have yet to be released is strictly prohibited, and outgoing links to such should be accompanied by the appropriate spoiler warnings.
4. Covers, solicitation copy, and/or promotional materials shall not be considered spoilers and are allowed, unless their content involves specific plot details; in those cases, outgoing links with spoiler warnings should be used.
5. The unmarked posting of spoilers related to comics will be allowed after a period of one week (Wednesday to Wednesday) from that comic's release.[/b] ([u]NOTE:[/u] Longer? -Spike)
[b]6. Members of Comic GAF are expected at all times to exercise common sense and polite discretion as a matter of courtesy to fellow posters. I know, tough one.
7. If you are unsure of whether or not posting something would constitute a spoiler, err on the side of caution and use the [SPOILER] tags.[/b]

In short, don't be Stephanie Brown. Don't be... The Spoiler. For one thing, [b]you're[/b] not that loveable. >:|

Happy reading!

Also, Batman dressed as Wonder Woman in the banner is excellent. :D

But, but, Deadly Class was really good. It really felt like I was reading a story and not just something with text bubbles and pretty pictures.

Carrying over some of the conversation from last month's thread, I, too, have cut back on spending overall. My bank has this nifty little feature where it breaks down the categories (gas, entertainment, car, etc.) and $ amounts of what I've spent my money on. I was taken aback by how much I was spending on food/restaurants that I didn't realize how much money I was burning through. $8-$10 everyday for lunch and eating out with the missus every other night made for an eye opening experience once I looked at the numbers. That was a few years back and I've become much better at managing my money/budget.

Just finished reading Spider-Men and I loved it. Miles is a great character, and it was nice to see Peter get to say goodbye to the Ultimate family. Between this and Spider-Island I feel like I've begun to feel comfortable coming back to Spidey now. These were some really goodwill arcs that did a lot to sorta bury the hatchet on the things that'd pushed me away from Spider-Man as a kid.

So basically a couple of questions now:

1. At the end Spidey googles Miles and he's all "Oh my God!" Do we find out what he found out?

2. What's the next Spider-Man story I should really bother to care about?

3. Can anybody suggest a good X-Men arc for getting back in and over past grievances there? I dropped X-Men after Here Comes Tomorrow and have only ever been back for events, which tend to kinda disappoint. The X-Men are all split up and at odds, now, I guess, but is there a good place to just jump back on with the majority of the team?

4. Thinkin' bout checking out Spidey 2099 now. Anything I need to know before diving into that one?

No, and I doubt we will in the near future.

Do you read the Superior Spider-Man Issues that lead to Miguels timetravel? Beside that, I think you should only need the basic knowledge about Spider-Man 2099.

3. Have you read Uncanny X-Force by Rick Remender? It's not a main X-Men book but it's a fantastic run and is worth reading if you like the series.

4. All you really need to know is that Miguel is stuck in our time and he's working for his asshole grandfather under the name Mike O'Mara. It's been fun so far and Miguel is a great protagonist.

Winter Soldier this month, yo! That cover is such a trip, I like how it incorporates Bucky at different points in comics. Rudy art goes right into my veins.

Everyone buy this so it doesn't get cancelled again, and so that Latour is invited back to WS sometime.

I just finished reading Gotham Academy. I thought it was a great first issue. Becky Cloonan and Brenden Fletcher quickly introduced the characters and established not only their relationships with one another, but their voices. GeyseR and Karl Kerschl brought the Academy to life in fantastic detail, the colours and tone, soft and warm. Kerschl's character work was on point. The characters themselves were animated and expressive. Their body language was just as telling as the dialogue. The only disappointment I have is that the issue was over too quickly. It's a long wait for issue two.

EDIT: I've thought about it a little more and there was one criticism I had with the writing. It is a spoiler, so be warned. The assumed relationship
between Batman/Bruce Wayne and Olive is a little groan-worthy. I know it's "Gotham" Academy and needs to be connected to the Bat-family titles on some level, but the issue felt refreshingly removed from Batman, while still sharing the same universe. The history between Olive, her mother and Batman feels forced at this stage. It seems as though Bruce, or rather Batman is somewhat responsible for whatever happened to Olive's mother, maybe accounting for Olive's Wayne Foundation Scholarship.
I have faith in Cloonan and Fletcher's writing ability, but they need to tread carefully. Gotham Academy needs to be able to stand on its own.

I'm also looking forward to Green Arrow #35 this week. I'd love to hear some impressions before I buy it though. I'm not 100% sold on the new creative team.

Justice League 34 is an excellent comic.

Captain Cold and Lex Luthor both being sneaky as Heck, Lex's hazing being forcing him to feel humanity, The Flash bonding with Jessica Cruz (and her general 'I'm going to use this ring for good' awesomeness) and THAT awesome ending

YES! CHAMPIONE!

Speaking of being frugal. I can't afford comics this week after being really reckless and impulsive with my money this week. If I buy comics I can't make rent. Fucking sucks man.


Wait... SPIKE. No place in the OP for Harley and Pee Gees crossover?

I dug it. Scott Kollins helped with the inks, and it feels like a hybrid between his Flash stuff and Prado's JL stuff. That said, I'm hoping the new guy on JL shakes things up a little. It feels like it SHOULD be the comic that tries to be more interesting visually. Not that it's ever bad, but after Lee left it feels like it's servicing the story rather than being genuinely unique visually.

Bendis wants to do a Spider-Men sequel at some point so I guess we'll find out then.

I really dug the
Lex and Diana scenes. Hopefully Simon Baz shows up to help train Jessica Cruz.
