Vote for Your Favorite Gathering Story…so far

Two issues and over two dozen incredible stories from host of talented creators. Earlier in the week we asked fans to send me their top choices for their favorite stories over the first two issues. You were overwhelming in your responses across Facebook, Twitter, this site and email. A Brief Encounter by Gail Simone and Cassandra James did earn enough votes to be in the top ten but for the purposes of the poll I included the next highest vote getter for a couple of reasons.

The main reason is that the winner(s) of this poll will be given an opportunity to pitch a self contained one shot or mini to be published in 2012. While Gail has been incredibly supportive and generous with her time, if she and Cassandra won I think it’d be a bit much to assume they’d be down for a self contained issue or issues.

So reread those first two issues of The Gathering and think long and hard about which writer, artist or writer/artist you want to see tackle a solo issue next year. We’re looking at adding a few one shots and or mini series in 2012 outside of The Gathering brand and the very first book will be decided upon by you, the fans.

A couple final points to consider before clicking: the winning creative team or creator may not necessarily choose to continue their Gathering story into the one shot so vote based on the merits of the story itself rather than if you want to see the characters again. Also the winning team may already have a solo project in the works or may not be interested in pursuing a full story on their own. In that case, the next highest vote getter will get the opportunity so every vote does count and don’t be discourage if your favorite starts out slow.

Polls close in a month.
