Comic Book Power Rankings

I’m frustratingly far behind on my comics, so I just finished my comics from November.  Here are my rankings:

1. The Manhattan Projects (Issue #16) [This story has been so weird and so entertaining.]
2. Infinity (Issue #6) [Jonathan Hickman wraps up Marvel’s latest event in this issue, Avengers #23, and New Avengers #12.]
3. Uncanny X-men (Issue #14) [I wasn’t sold on the recent X-men crossover event, Battle Of The Atom, because the plot holes in time-travel stories are just too glaring, but now that that’s over, Uncanny X-men and All New X-men both had solid issues this month.]
4. Forever Evil (Issue #3) [Villains having to team up and play the roles of heroes makes for a good story.]
5. Astro City (Issue #6) [Kurt Busiek writes a follow-up issue to the story told in #1.]

1. Ultimate Spider-man (Issue #28) [Could this be the end of Ultimate Spider-man?]
