Bonus Question: What were you born to do?


  1. Your link points to next week’s book.

    BQ: I was born to be pedantic.

  2. Batman #2, Fables #110, Wonder Woman #2 – that’s my entire haul for the week

    BQ: I was probably born to live as a recluse in a library researching and reading books all day. I do that now, but in my own home where I can shower and make french toast.

  3. Super excited for Secret Identity #1 – the trade is out of print, and I’ve heard great things about this book. Also looking forward to Batman #2, Nightwing #2, Wonder Woman #2, Wolverine #17.

    BQ: I’m still looking for whatever it is I was born to be.

  4. Another small week, mostly DC.

    Batman #2, Green Lantern Corps #2, Nightwing #2, and Journey Into Mystery #629


  5. a lighter week for me than usual im grabbing Avengers, Batman, DCU presents, Fear Itself , Justice League, Wonder Woman, Wolverine

  6. BQ: To watch Ghostbusters a million times as an infant, apparently. I knew all the lines by the time I came into awareness.

  7. So far i only have 5 books…cut all of the “3” level stuff and i’m just focusing on the New 52 stuff that i loved. (Sorry DC, i know you hate to hear that).

    Excited for Justice League and Wonder Woman the most. (which shocks me as i write that)

  8. JL, GLC, Blue Beetle, Captain Atom. All #2’s!

  9. can’t see the comics.

  10. Does Supergirl #2 and Daredevil #5 come out this week?

  11. Welp there goes the DC streak. Last book of Uncanny coming out, and Ron has the pick. GG!

    Pulling: Batman, Wonderwoman, and maybe JLA and Uncanny(depending on scores).

    BQ: I was born to be a DD. Or at least thats what my parents always told me.

  12. BQ: I was born to be a constant reminder of an accident made 28 years ago. moral of the story folks, you want the love, wear the glove.

  13. Good week, Fear Itself finally wraps up and we can all move on with our lives.

    BQ: I was born because some clerk at a drug store sold my dad on sheepskin condoms.

  14. I was born to read Batwoman and Swamp Thing.

  15. Ok these last few weeks have been getting silly. Something is going to have to go soon. I’m going to try a few things on the cheaper later version and now anything I’m on the fence about will also have to drop back a month before getting dropped.
    I assume as Wonder Woman and Batman 2 are out I can now buy #1’s a bit cheaper? Near Death is going to have to wait a month.

    I;m still looking for what I was born to do; although I;ve a horrible suspicion it might be complaining.

  16. I have a light week, and Wonder Woman looks the most promising.

    BQ: My job! Teach.

  17. Batman, Wonder Woman, A princess of Mars, and Near Death. Excited for this week!

    BQ: I have no idea.

  18. Man, Superior #6 is my only book this week. I’ll probably just go next week.

  19. Great to see Avengers 1959 again so soon, and Batman and Wonder Woman are enticing to see, Love the look of Wolverine, and I’m glad to see the end of Fear Itself.

    BQ: ” Run”, clearly,

  20. I was born to chew bubblegum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubblegum.

  21. Batman, Wonderwoman, Supergirl, Near Death & Marzi TP. 4 stellar no.1’s, can the second issues keep up the momentum? I’ve pulled Marzi but it’s not actually available for me in the UK till December. I’ll make it my Xmas present to myself.

    BQ: I was born to wonder & create.

  22. Avengers #18, Catwoman #2, Fear Itself #7, Invincible Iron Man #509, Justice League #2, Nightwing #2, Red Hood and the Outlaws #2, Uncanny X-Men #544, Wolverine #17. Luckily with the end of Fear Itself I can afford to pick up Avenging Spider-Man starting in November.

  23. This week is an important one, it’s the week where I finally quit buying floppies and start buying HC and Original art.
    Let’s see what I make of it!

  24. I’m still trying to figure out what I was born to do.

  25. 5 books for me, most excited for Justice League and X-Factor.

    BQ: i was born to read comics, watch the New Jersey Devils and listen to opera. But not all at the same time.

  26. I’ve been looking forward to reading Red Hood and the Outlaws, Nightwing and Catwoman for the last few weeks.
    BQ: I was born to survive.

  27. Supergirl # 2, Birds of Prey #2 , and Nightwing #2.

    BQ: I was born to be a geeky older sister.

  28. Big week. Fear Itself finally ends, it has been a big let down but I ordered it so I am going to read it.

    From DC I have
    Batman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Red Hood and Outlaws, Nightwing and Catwoman.

    Very exciting.

    BQ: I was born cheer for the Miami Dolphins. (it’s been a rough year…make that rough couple of years)

  29. It’s pretty amazing that Batman 2 has more pulls than Justice League 2.

    • I thought so, too. Although Batman was a kind of under the radar hit. Sure, Batman is always going to sell, but Justice League had a ton of hype leading up to it and Batman kind of didn’t, so when it was such a critically praised book, it took a lot of people by surprise.

  30. Savage Dragon rules this week of course.

    Catwoman #2 is also one I can’t wait for, my fav of the new 52. Best take on Catwoman in at least 15 years.

  31. Born to kick-ass and chew bubblegum, and I am all outta bubblegum.

  32. All I have pulled this week are Journey Into Mystery #629, Wonder Woman #2 and Justice League #2.

    BQ: I was born to sing “I was born to love you”. Oh Freddie Mercury.

  33. I’m stoked for Batman, Blue Beetle, and Legion of Super-Heroes!

  34. Dark Horse Presents, Star Trek -Legion of Super-Heros and the Unwritten trade. All the rest of the DC books waiting a month for cheaper digital. Wish Marvel would follow DC and Image with the back issue digital discount.

    I was born to point out how absurd the world is through a cloud of smoke.

  35. BQ: i was born to be the answer to the question, “who just got hurt?”

  36. Um, can comics just take a week off & let me make some progress with everything I bought at the convention this past weekend? No? Alright then . . .

    DC: Most excited for Batman and Supergirl. Curious to see where Catwoman goes next, hoping that it can live up to what the character deserves. Will probably pick up Wonder Woman, but will move Birds of Prey to next week. Ideally I would give Blue Beatle another issue, but I’m afraid that the budget calls for it join JLI on the discard pile.

    Marvel: Most excited for the new Journey into Mystery. Will also pick up Iron Man and the Daredevil #2 2nd print (as I missed the first). Will read a friend’s copy of Fear Itself, but my expectations are pretty low . . .

    Indie: Continuing to love Wagner’s take on Zorro. More people really should be reading this book.

    BQ: to write & simply enjoy life . . .
