In a colossally bad idea (for me, that is – for you folks it is pretty fun), I am going to do TWO countdowns this December. In honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of Deadpool this December, we’ll be doing a countdown next month of the 25 Greatest Deadpool Stories Ever Told!
So here you will be casting your vote for who you feel are the greatest Deadpool stories!
You folks all vote in the comments section here up until 11:59 Pacific time, November 30th. I’ll tabulate all the votes and I’ll begin a countdown of the top 25 beginning sometime in early December (most likely after the Captain America countdown begins).
Okay, here are the guidelines!
1. Vote in the comments section below, making sure to include that classic word “ACBC” somewhere in your comment so your vote will be marked invisible.
2. Vote for your TEN favorite Deadpool stories (from comic books only). They can be single issue stories. They can be longer storylines. It’s all about to you.
3. Rank your ten stories from #1 (what you think is the greatest story) to #10 (what you think is the 10th greatest). I’d prefer it if you actually numbered your entry, #1-10. It’s easier for me to count. On that note, please also avoid listing them like this “1) 2) 3) 4),” because 8 with a ) after it transforms into a smiley face in the comments section (this one 8) ). Just plain ol’ “1. 2. 3.” works best. Really, just use this template:
TEN GREATEST DEADPOOL STORIES
4. Your top choice will be given 10 points, your second choice 9, etc.
5. Only stories where Deadpool is a lead or a co-lead character count. In other words, not books where he is just part of a team, and not the spotlight character, like Uncanny X-Force. But comics he guest-stars in can count (like New Mutants #98 can count).
6. Runs are not stories. To wit, you can’t pick, say, Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn’s run and call it a story. It is not. It contains a number of different stories. Trade paperbacks are usually a good sign in case you’re wondering about how stories are split up.
7. Mini-series count as one story. In the case of anthologies, each story inside the anthology is considered an independent story.
8. Make sure to include ACBC in your ballot.
9. If you have questions and or requests for clarification, feel free to ask them in the comments section below. I’ll make various decisions as necessary.
Remember, please include the following word: ACBC – on your ballot. It will make it so your ballot appears invisible to other readers, so only I can read it (and count your vote secretly).
Most importantly, have fun!
Now vote! 🙂
