    The Brave and the Bold.

    But I voted other, because I'm assuming the title in the poll is the original Batman book, whereas I liked the recent Waid/JMS series.

    I liked that one too. Eliminating a few spectacularly awful issues at the start of the Straczynski run, which were both formulaic in a boring way (The hero loses his powers or spends the issue tied up or something so they can't do cool stuff) and both predictably and heavy-handedly moralistic...

    You've got about 31 good issues from a 35 issue series. Even the interim writers were surprisingly good - the Hine/Braithwhite stuff was about the best dark science fiction story I've ever read in a superhero book. Not that there's a lot of competition.

    Definitely the best rotating cast team-up book, IMO. Much better than, say, Super-Team family or Marvel Team-Up (Third series) and far more consistently good than the pre-Batman Brave and the Bold stories in the '60s.

    Marvel Team-Up. It's the title that brought me into comics, and I think it is the most straight forward title of the bunch (followed quickly by Marvel Two-in-One). I would love to see the return of both those titles, actually.
    Be careful when speaking. You create the world around you with your words.

    There's an Avenging Spider-Man book, now. So far it's solidly Okay... Just like (let's face it) 80% of the original Marvel Team-0Up series. Which is basically the same thing. I was afraid it was going to be completely Avengers-centric, but there was a Daredevil and Punisher issue so I guess that's not true. (Not as good as the spectacular Bill

    Mantlo loved using guest-stars in both Rom and Micronauts. But yeah, maybe even moreso in Rom.

    (He also seemed to have a thing for obscure Hulk foes in Rom. Missing Link, Metal Master, Gremlin (son of the Gargoyle)...)

    Of these, the Marvel books are the only ones I've read much of, and I think I preferred MTIO. I was fond of The Thing, and not a fan of Spider-Man, and the stories seemed richer. Sometimes there'd even be arcs, like the Serpent Crown Affair.

    Of course MTU #100 is a classic.
