    Both of these storylines have gone on over the summer and have encompassed both of their comic universes. Which one in your opinion has been the better storyline...or has been just better?

    don't you mean infinite crisis vs. civil war?
    either way i find civil war more straight forward and enterataining.

    I find Civil War better so far. 52 is going to lose momentum eventually, and then the story will suffer for it. However, Civil War is Marvel's baby...and let's face it, Millar can never fail.

    Gotta go with Civil War. Although I admit, 52 is really the only DC book I'm buying on a regular basis.

    i think even DC freaks are marvel biased when civil war is involved :mamoru:

    DC has put out a truckload of garbage the last few years, the best thing DC ever did was release the vertigo line of comics :o

    Yeah, it's just not "nifty" anymore. But they're even considering making it an ongoing after the 52nd issue, but maybe biweekly. Heck, it's like having 4 top 10 sellers every month!

    I really like Civil war, so I voted for that.

    However, I am enjoying 52. It's got some pretty good storylines IMO

    I was just curious because I could only find up to nine on most sites.

    Also if BG returns, he'll come back as four people. A cyborg, A teen version, A guy with a big visor....err..and a completely metallic version.

    I won't buy it unless they bring Ted Kord, Tora, Sue Dibny, and Maxwell Lord back too. Did I miss anyone? They haven't killed Guy Gardner or Bea yet, have they? Bring them back too anyway.

    Nah, the series is worthless now. It's just another in the DC "kill the Super Buddies" line.
