    Well, of that list, the only thing I read, and the only thing I'd bother reading, is Green Lantern Rebirth.

    Edit: Except for Ultimates, which I'm catching up on right now. Great series so far, but not up to part 2 yet.

    I loved Ultimates 2. Great art, and great story.

    GL Rebirth is a VERY close second place. I wish I could have voted for both of them.

    "Green Lantern: Rebirth"

    I hated the concept. I didn't want to see it happen. I mean no disrespect to Hal Jordan or his fans, but it just felt way too late to be bringing him back. Especailly after Kyle had found his place in the DCU.

    But GODDAMN did it ever freakin' ROCK! :rock

    Lots of support for DC here (which I cant stand). This was a really down year for marvel in my opinion, the big event House of M was a total dud. I cant say I look forward to 2006 with the way things are shaping up at marvel either. The biggest letdown has to be that Milligan is doing Apocalypse's comeback, ugh...

    It was a banner year for DC. Infinite Crisis is one of the most enjoyable comic events I've read in years (10 years to be exact, going back to the Age of Apocalypse).

    Marvel, on the other hand, centered their year around an abysmal Big Event where absolutely nothing happened for six issues. Meanwhile, Astonishing X-Men, before disappearing completely for six months, took a huge nosedive in quality. At this point, it really seems like Marvel's only consistent strategy is to stick Wolverine and/or Spider-Man into as many comics as possible and trust them to provide sales. I've been a loyal Marvel fan since I started reading comics, but I came really close to dropping Marvel and going exclusively with DC last year.

    (And I like Milligan on X-Men. He's not the best writer the book's ever had, but he's really grown on me since the Decimation started. The last issue was great. And to be honest, I trust him with Apocalypse way more than I'd trust Claremont or Whedon.)
