March Reading List Poll – Comics
So, given the success of my first such reading poll (details here and here) last month, I’m kicking off the next one, and this is for comics/graphic novels of all sorts. Getting back into the medium last year was fantastic and I read some truly great stuff. As always, there’s a lot of reading for me in the future, and to have some semblance of decisiveness about it, since I can never do that and just cherry pick stuff at random, I’m opening it up to all of you.
Now, here are the rules:
- 35 options in all,
- You can vote for up to 12,
- The poll goes on till midnight 28th February, which means this is a 2-week poll,
- Once the poll closes, I will pick the top 12 as my definite reads for March.
- As always, comments are encouraged!
- 300 votes – I read and review all the top 12 graphic novels.
- 350 votes – I do a third reading list poll, for May, back to novels! (EDIT: Have pushed this one month forward to account for an increased ARC reading load).
- 400 votes – I post the first chapter from my work-in-progress Indian Mythology inspired urban fantasy novella aka Project: Dharmayoddha.
- 450 votes – I read and review an additional 6 graphic novels, for a total of 18.
And, any ideas for more stretch goals?

Some interesting choices there. Went for a number of the non-DC/Marvel ones so to speak as they are the ones that interest me more.
Being a big fan on The Walking Dead how could I not choose The Infinite. Big fan of Top Cow and Witchblade, and I have had my eye on Fables and Grimm Fairy Tales for a while now.
I really need to read the TopCow Witchblade series. Bought the Witchblade: Rebirth Vol.1 a couple months back but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
That Fairest cover has stared at me for weeks, because it is the cover art for the ad for the Fablescon hanging in the source…
Skip Action Comics. Thought it was terrible. Fables always excellent, too.
I read the first issue last year and loved it. A very refreshing take on fairy tales. Definitely need to finish the first volume.
Curious to hear about Thor and Wolverine especially. On a snark level, I am also curious to know exactly what Little Red Riding Hood was thinking when she got dressed that morning. Eep!
Zenescope is like that 🙂 Alice got a similar treatment in the Wonderland books. I don’t mind it too much TBH, because the one thing that Zenescope does is that they are consistent about it across their line. It doesn’t help the whole sexualisation angle, but I respect them enough to be honest (?) with it. At least they are not doing the stupid crap like DC did with Starfire. Now that’s just totally messed up.
ultimate stretch goal. ignite issue, and attempt to read before conflagration reaches critical mass! -CP 😉
