Welcome to the CBR Forums Top 50 Comics of 2012 list.
We are polling the posters of the CBR Forums to see what comics they enjoyed in 2012.
To participate in this list, you need to have an active account on the CBR Forums. You will send a Private Message to me (Please use the subject: CBR Forums Top Comics of 2012) with a list of your top 10 comics of 2012. In order to send a PM, your account will have to have at least 5 posts. You have until 01/11/13 11:59 PM PST to send in your selections.
You will rank your choices from 1 to 10 with 1 being the top of the list. You have up to 10 selections. You can choose less than 10 if you want. But you must rank them. Ties and no rankings will not be counted. I'll then assign scores based on the rankings and total up the scores of every poster who sends in a list.
You can choose any comic that was originally published in 2012 be it series, graphic novel, newspaper, webcomic, one shot, zine, or trade (the trade must have been originally released in 2012, reprints/reissues of previous trades/gns will not be counted. The trade must be the first time the material has been collected in a trade format).
For monthly or continuing series, it must have at least 1 issue released in 2012. Please choose the series as a whole and not individual issues. For series that have been restarted in 2012 (Marvel Now or others), please make it clear which Volume of the series you are choosing. Example: Batgirl Vol 3 (the Bryan Q. Miller Steph Batgirl) and Batgirl Vol 4 (the Gail Simone 52 Babs Batgirl).
An example of how your list should be formatted. The more info you give the easier it will be to count.

If you want, you can add a short sentence or two as to why you enjoy the comic. I may use them as part of the list when it is posted.
The list will be posted after the deadline.
Feel free to ask questions if you have them.
