Marvel vs. DC

Marvel vs DCThe age old debate of who is better, Marvel or DC. If we are talking movies, Marvel is definitely doing a better job with pumping out more high quality work. If we look at animated tv shows and animated movies, DC is killing it. Video games I’d give it to DC as well, as the most recent Batman Arkham City game was fantastic, and the upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us game looks very promising. But if we are talking comics, the real battle to decide supremacy, these two companies are very equal indeed.

Below is a list of all the books I am reading monthly from Marvel and DC, and I’ve organized it by favouritism. Marvel books in red, DC books in blue.

  1. Batman
  2. Justice League

A total of 18 DC books and 19 Marvel.  I really can’t pick a favourite company, I like a lot of books being published from both. Both of them have their ups and downs as creative teams change, and various events unfold. I’d have to call it a draw unfortunately.

Books from other comic publishers I’m enjoying (in order of favouritism) are:
