We all have a pretty good idea when it comes to what the big two have to offer, but Image is by far one of the best go-to spots if you want some truly unique titles. Sure, they have zombies and dudes in capes like everyone else, but their vast catalog of titles offers an overwhelming amount of fascinating and varied stories for you to dive right into. This week, we wanted to know which title you're digging the most and yes, we couldn't cram EVERY book on the poll, but we did take into account the specified "other" votes. After two days of voting, the very close race between two certain titles has ended and SAGA barely took the victory!

No Caption Provided

There's two reasons why you should be interested in this book. 1) Brian K. Vaughan and 2) Brian K. Vaughan. The sky is the limit when it comes to the talented writer's creativity with this always expanding sci-fi/fantasy adventure universe. Moreover, Fiona Staples does a brilliant job bringing Vaughan's creations to life and makes this a truly immersive reading experience. We continue to love this book here at Comic Vine and we highly recommend it if you're looking to jump face first into something totally new and refreshing.

Here's the poll results.

  • Saga 23%
  • Invincible 20%
  • The Walking Dead 18%
  • East of West 5%
  • Chew 4%
  • Fatale 4%
  • Spawn 4%
  • Other (Please Specify) 4%
  • Lazarus 3%
  • The Manhattan Projects 3%
  • Luther Strode 2%
  • Mind the Gap 2%
  • Morning Glories 2%
  • Savage Dragon 2%
  • Ten Grand 2%
  • Clone 1%
  • Five Weapons 1%
  • Jupiter's Legacy 1%
  • Hack/Slash 1%
  • Nowhere Men 1%
  • Chin Music 0%
  • Ghosted 0%
  • Satellite Sam 0%

Which book earned your vote and why? Be sure to comment below and explain why you think said series is more than worthy of your praise. Finally, don't forget to check back next Tuesday for an all-new 'Comic Book Question of the Week!' In the meantime, if you have a suggestion for a future question, we're more than happy to hear it! So, if you've got one, feel free to share it below!

I voted for Saga, so I'm glad to see the results. It's arguably the best non-superhero comic on the stands right now, perhaps even the best comic overall! Also, there's a third reason to read Saga: Fiona Staples. That woman can DRAW.

Saga is great, but Manhattan Projects and Great Pacific are equally as good. And Ten Grand and Sex are not far behind. Image is by far my favorite publisher.

It's a really fun book. And I dunno if Image usually does this for the first TPB for a series, but volume one is only ten bucks (I think 15 for vol. 2) so it's cheap to catch up.

Well worth it, read the first issues of Saga and it was fantastic. Personally I believe so because it's such a different tone than what the typical big two are doing right now so it's a fresh entry.

Spawn, but only the Al Simmons run for me. New Spawn hasn't interested me much.

Glad Invincible got a lot of love, would've also liked to see Chew and Luther Strode get a bit more recognition.

Not a fan of Saga, though.

Quelle unfair poll! Too many deserved my votes (not really a surprise if you ever see my Essentials picks or reviews). Image is thoroughly amazing me right now.

The Walking Dead has been kicking ass and taking names for a decade now and it's continued high level of excellence makes it the best.

Elephantmen deserves some recognition.

Saga is certainly worthy so this is not a complaint of the poll, but I'd like to know how this would have gone if Saga, Invincible, and TWD were not a choice. This was a bit too predictable.

saga def. deserves to be 1 but walking dead shouldn't even be as high as it is. if were talking about currently then the walking dead should be at 10. the story is dragging zombies have disappeared ,and no one but myself seems to notice. no herds nothing just a few here and there.

I've said it before but The Walking Dead single handedly got me back into comics in the 2000's. I can't think of a zombie story that I've loved as much as that book and I sincerely doubt there ever will be. I like Invincible as well because its like Dragon Ball Z crossed with Ultimate Spider-Man. Saga is a fantastic book, I just wouldn't put it as my top Image series.

Image books are all amazing. I agree with Saga as of right now, such an amazing book. I think the greatest thing about this book is it's accessibility to non comic book readers... it's just a great story with great art that everyone can appreciate. I've gotten a few of my non comic book friends to start reading this and they now crave it month to month like the the rest of us Saga addicts to. Gotta get my fix now after talking about it.

Image are doing so well at the moment, I didn't know who to vote. I went for Saga in the end but I've got a lot of love for Fatale too. I also really enjoyed the first 2 issues of Lazarus, so I'm excited to see what comes next.

I didn't realize this poll was going on, but then again, obviously Saga didn't need my help to win anyway. So glad it's back.

Aw man I missed this pole. i would have voted for Morning Glories. Not that it would have made a difference in the percentages.

Missed this! Saga would have taken my vote, too--amazing art, solid writing, surprises, characters and a world I want to learn lots more about... haven't been disappointed with an issue. But Image also has a bunch of my other favorites. Chew is clever and creative and original and cool, and I'm always psyched to read it. The Manhattan Projects is likewise extremely engaging, funny, and creepy. And I have to admit, I read The Walking Dead, too--like someone above said, it got me back into comics.

I've been reading the Walking Dead from the beginning and don't get me wrong it has been amazing... but Saga has completely blown my mind. So freaking good.

I only see the old classic series as image series. The new series are much more just a creator owned stories (the old ones where too but the characters jumped between issues and stories). So basically there isn't any images titles but only titles owned by the creators therefore I think talking about a image title is a pseudo thrush. It is not like a DC or Marvel title. The sooner people relize this the better it will be for the comic industry and the creators. The creators is the one who needs to be awarded not image.

Yeah I'm impressed it got that many votes as well.

Spawn needs to do some type of reboot.

It did like five years ago.
