The 'best new series' category is going to be crowded this year. I want to nominate X-O Manowar as well as Saga but that leaves no room for Batman Beyond Unlimited.
I think it's a safe bet that someone else will suggest Saga if you want to throw in those other two come nominations time. :)
American Vampire's "Blacklist" is worthy of a best story arc nom.
Yeah, Saga will get my nomination.
Yeah, that absolutely creeped me out and fascinated me at the same time.
Wolverine and the X-Men #17 (the Doop issue) is worth considering for best single issue or one-shot. Man, that's funny stuff.
