What can you say about these two books? It's interesting to note that both finalists deal extensively with the concept of family. Also interesting is their exploration of legacy this year.

Batman and Robin seemed like it was the apex of Grant Morrison's Batman story, but it turns out it, too was another step. Still, with artists this year like Cameron Stewart, Andy Clarke, and Frazer Irving, it's hard to find another book on the stands with this much raw talent, and this much variation. It was zany, it was fun, it was deep and serious and scary, it was moving, it was a best-seller, and it's a finalist for Favorite Ongoing Series of 2010.

Fantastic Four found its foundation again under the watchful eye of writer Jonathan Hickman. Its inclusion in the finals may surprise those of you who haven't read it; after all, it was an 11 seed! But if you've read this family saga, you know exactly why its here. Also with multiple talented artists, Dale Eaglesham, Neil Edwards, and Steve Epting lent pencils to the title in 2010, the Fantastic Four again became a title where imagination and family values collided, and it's a finalist for Favorite Ongoing Series of 2010.

Now it's up to you to vote again.

Remember, you don’t have to be a registered Newsarama reader to participate. EVERYONE can help choose by picking one choice in each of the below brackets. Again, there are two of them in the Semi-finals, so keep going until you’ve voted in BOTH brackets. Voting for the Semi-finals will remain open for 1 week.

Newsarama Note: Full methodology for nomination is below the polls.

10 Newsarama contributors submitted their lists for their personal Top 20 in each of the five categories. The results were tabulated using a weighted system that awarded an escalating number points according to how high the nominee appeared on the list - 20th place was worth 1 point, 19th place 2 points ... up to 20 points for 1st place.

The final nominee lists are the top 16 nominees with the highest point totals in each category.

Each bracket is seeded according to point total, with the highest vote-getter in each bracket moving onto the next round.

There will be 4 total rounds for each category (the “Sinister 16”, "Extremis 8", “Fantastic Four” and Finals) eventually resulting in one overall “Favorite of 2010” for each group.
