    Just don't end your first arc with a cliffhanger and start your second in medias res. That's just stupid and confusing, I felt like I missed at least three issues that should have took place between 7 and 8. Hell, the first time I read issue 8 I was convinced that the hologram guy was actually Choke, I had to read the discussion page on this board to discover that it was another character entirely.
    I haven't read them (but will get the tpb come September), but could the Night of the Owls crossover thrown off the pacing / direction a touch?

    I voted for "all of them" because while I like pretty much all of them (with the exception of Batgirl), there isn't really one that stands above the rest for me. Wonder Woman is critically the best but I find Diana boring. Batwoman was previously my clear top-runner but I think the current arc is really bad and that's left me doubting the future of the title.
    Saga, Private Eye, Chew, Umbral, Deadly Class, Pretty Deadly

    She-Hulk, Ghost Rider, Loki, Moon Knight, Iron Fist, Daredevil, Punisher, X-Factor

    1. Wonder Woman is easily the best female centric book from DC right now and a really amazing book that took a character I had only a marginal interest in and really made me into a WW fan.

    2. Birds of Prey is a strong second in my book. I love the characters and I think it's one of the strongest team books among those that I am reading right now.

    3. Batgirl is a distant third from those two. There are times I really enjoy the book and other times that I question why I'm reading it at all.

    4. Batwoman is a distant fourth from the lot. The first arc was wonderful but the last several issue have not been as good as the intial ones. It seems to have lost some steam at any rate.

    I'm not reading any of the others and I have yet to pick up a copy of World's Finest (hoping to do so Friday) so I don't know yet if that will change anything in this list or not.

    Characters come and go, revamped and revisited. But as long as you enjoyed them, remember them and continue to appreciate them, then that character, your hero or heroine, will always exist.

    I don't think so, I mean, their crossover issue is 9, they still made quite a big and nonsensical jump between 7 and 8.
    It's a strong series with amazing artworks and great characters, I won't deny that, but I do believe sometimes it leaves you confused quite a bit. honestlyI think you'll have a better read with the tpb. It collects the first 7 issues if I'm not wrong.

    just for the record any title with 'Bat' in it does not count, neither does catwoman

    Why not?

    Probably about even. Currently I'm pulling:

    Supergirl
    Wonder Woman
    Voodoo
    Catwoman
    Birds

    I had to drop the Batlady books, but I'm also picking up:

    Red Sonja
    Dejah Thoris
    Lady Death
    Vampirella

    No multiple choice? I voted for Birds of Prey, but Supergirl is awesome too.
    I'm still waiting for a new Wonder Twins ongoing. Let's make it happen, DC.

    Good thing I'm the Supreme Allied Commander of my Army of One, I guess.

    In other words...Request denied!

    I was loving it for the first arc, but I totally agree that #8 took it too far.

    When the voting is closed, maybe we'll revisit this with a multiple-choice option (as well as Worlds' Finest).

    But there is the "I enjoy most / all of them" option as well.
