The Greatest Brian K. Vaughan Stories Ever Told! – Voting

Here’s the latest of the daily voting threads for The Greatest ____ Stories Ever Told!

Our next creator up for voting is Brian K. Vaughan.

Brian K. Vaughan has worked in comics for well over a decade now, doing work for Marvel and DC, as well as his creator-owned work like Y the Last Man, Ex Machina and his current his series, Saga.

You have until 11:59 PM Pacific time, April 3rd to vote for your top ten favorite comic book stories written or co-written by Brian K. Vaughan! Your choices will be revealed on April 4th.

You vote by sending your top ten choices to bcronin@comicbookresources.com (make the subject heading clear that it is about The Greatest Brian K. Vaughan Stories Ever Told Voting) by that time (you send your votes by e-mail, not in the comments to this piece). If you legitimately don’t think you can think of ten stories, I’ll still allow the ballot if you can think of at least six stories.

Be sure to first click here to read about the rules and guidelines for the voting (so you don’t vote for stuff that is ineligible, like you can’t vote for “Brian K. Vaughan’s Ex Machina,” you have to pick a specific story or story arc).

I’d prefer you not share your votes in the comments section – please let’s keep it a surprise until the results go up. You can share your votes then if you’d like! In addition, as a general rule for all of these polls, don’t be a jerk about the creator in question in the comments. If you don’t like the creator, fair enough, don’t vote. No snarky comments about the creator. I’ll be deleting comments like that.

Have fun voting and be sure to check back April 4th to see the results!


I wish I could vote from the future when Saga ends…hopefully at issue #1,000. :)

Why do so many people have such a hard on to see Saga go on forever? It’s a good series and all that, but it’s so character driven, I don’t see how it would be great to follow them for the next 50 years. BKV says he already has an ending in mind, so I’m wondering if this is going to go much past 60 issues. I’m more hopeful that when it’s over, I have a good series that I want to go back and read again, like Y and Ex Machina, and BKV is ready to fire up something else relatively new and interesting.

For Runaways, do we have to be more specific than Volume 1 (issues #1-18) and Volume 2 (issues #1-24)? Or would you prefer that we go with the trade paperback arcs?

Trade paperback arcs, please.


One more question, sorry: since the final issue for Y: The Last Man isn’t really part of the Whys and Wherefores arc (even though it’s included in that trade paperback), should Whys and Wherefores and issue #60 be two separate entries, or should we just group them together like the trade paperback?

I’d count them separately, yeah.

Thanks again!

Y: the Last Man, Ex Machina, Saga, and Runaways are sure to rule this countdown, but I hope folks don’t overlook his 6-issue mini THE ESCAPISTS…my fave of his works; just a heart-warming love letter to comic books as a medium and its history. And that ending..wow! Read it, BKV fans!
