Have no idea about the Wild Card...so pass lol

This was a really great month imo. Lots of great choices to choose from. For me personally though the two biggest highlights were Magneto and Sinestro. Delicious books right now.

Other than that, lots of great indie books as usual. Image and Valiant are still dominating from a pure quality perspective imo.

Only category I couldn't really figure out was Female Villain lol.

@fallschirmjager: yeah, I don't really know what to expect from the wild card (just had to throw on something...), but it will be interesting to see what wins. Of course, there is a reason why I switched it so I used other people's suggestions...

Wild Card - The Perfect Summer Read

aka (I guess) What three comic books would you bring to a deserted island?

Do these comics need to be comics that have been recently released (May 2014) or that are still ongoing, or could it be our favorite comics in general no matter their release date?

@donfelipe: yeah, perfect summer read could be = to three comic books would you bring to a deserted island. Like I said, I was hastily compiling this so I was like, "it's summer so we'll just say perfect summer read and see what happens..." I don't even know what I'm voting for.

I think we'll stay with just stuff released in May 2014 just so the votes are alike enough to get a result of some sort.

Of course, that does bring up a lot of possibities for future wild cards. I hadn't even thought about that...that could be really intersting for voters to vote for overall favorate __ (character, story arc, series, etc.) without the limitation of just being in this month. I'd love to hear some of the perspectives.

@madeinbangladesh: thanks for voting

@the_poet I haven't been to my LCS in a couple of weeks and won't be going until this weekend. So i can vote as early as sunday

Sorry for the delay. I wanted to see how many people voted by today before I made any decisions (though I kind of figured I would extend it no matter the numbers so you had the chance to vote). Since I'm going to the beach this weekend, I will extend the deadline to the evening of Monday the 9th.
