New Comics for 01.02.2013 is going to make it to the gym one more day a week

NOTE ABOUT THIS WEEK’S COMICS PAGE: This week’s list will not be as full of information as it usually is. Diamond didn’t update their final shippng list until today so we were not able to put the page together until today, and since today is a holiday, we’re not working on it as we normally would. The page will have more information on it as the week progresses.

ANOTHER NOTE ABOUT THIS WEEK’S COMICS PAGE: There is an error with the new recommendation widget that we have installed on the website that is causing it to insert into the middle of the comic listings (as well as in the middle of user reviews). We’re working on getting it fixed, but that’s not going to happen today either.

A THIRD NOTE ABOUT THIS WEEK’S COMICS PAGE: We’ve got a bug in the system that we are chasing down that is keeping the new comics list from appearing on the main page as it normally does.

Get to pulling this Wednesday’s books, and then let us know what you’re looking forward to most, what you’re dropping, what others should be buying and anything you’re thinking. Be heard, because we need you, iFanbase!

What are the iFanboys buying? Check their pull lists out here: Conor, Ron, and Josh.

And what about the rest of the staff? What are they buying? Check out their pull lists: Jim, Paul, Mike, Chris, Molly, Ryan, Ali, Chris, Jeff and Matt.

This week Ron Richards has the first Pick of the Week of 2013!

Bonus Question: What is your New Year’s Resolution for 2013?


  1. Mine is to keep my exercise routine on track. Started it in August, and I’ve kept it up so far. It’s done me too much good to let it go to waste.

  2. With the help of listening to all of the podcasts, I make it to the gym at least 6 times a week…thnx guys 🙂

  3. Awesome week with New Avengers, The Manhattan Projects, Prophet, Batman Inc., Punk Rock Jesus & American Vampire!

    BQ- I guess it’s a number of things getting a promotion at work to earn more money, which will then go towards my wedding at the end of the year & my plumbing course which starts in a weeks time. So really it’s more achieving what I want in life or taking a stronger step towards that!

    Oh & Happy New Year all!!!

  4. Yeesh we’re starting with a bang of a week aren’t we?

    Hellboy in hell
    Batman Inc
    The Flash
    Justice League Dark,
    Godzilla: half-century war
    Manhattan Projects
    New Avengers

    BQ: to drop the weight i gained in the christmas week in the new years week (goodbye carbs!).

  5. My LCBS released all of the new books a week early this past friday……I’ve already gotten all of my stuff. (aside from Joe Kubert Presents 3, Lot 13 #3, and Saga #8…..dang shipping errors)…..

    BQ: Three goals: Save Money! Cook More! (learn to cook new stuff) Be a better boyfriend! (cause I’m constantly on the razor’s edge of being a crappy one)

  6. Hooray! It’s the first batch of comics for the new year…and holy shit is it massive!

    All-Star Western
    Batman INC
    Hellboy in Hell
    Justice League
    Manhattan Projects (FINALLY!)
    New Avengers

    BQ: I got 3 resolutions:
    1) Get a job in editing
    2) Continue to lose weight. (I lost 55lbs last year but I want to lose more)
    3) Watch 1 new movie every single week in a theater. Not on Netflix. Go to a theater and watch them. Kinda start off with a whimper with ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ but hopefully 2013 is a good year for movies.

  7. BQ: I want to break out of my comfort zone comic-wise, take more chances next year.

    A lot of great stuff this week! Manhattan Projects, Batman Inc, New Avengers, Justice League, Flash, American Vampire and more.

  8. So this week I’m trying Brian Woods Mara, not much of a risk really…but not a sorta book I would usually read.

  9. Got my issues of JLA,Amazing Spiderman, Avenging and Aquaman last week.If you buy Amazing #700 make sure you get Avenging Spiderman #15.1 along with it.

  10. New Avengers
    All New X-Men
    Avenging Spider-man 15.1
    Amazing Spider-man 700

    BQ: Finally pull the trigger and get NFL and NBA certification as a player agent.

  11. I’ve got a ton of stuff on my resolutions list (lose weight and eat healthier/get more active/stop staying up so late/etc.), but a comic related one would be to get rid of some of my collection. Also, I need to organize a lot of them. Gotta get some bags and boards to store them.

    I’m trying not to buy so many comics since I’m trying to cut down and because I only want to buy the books I really want (Saga and Daredevil namely). I might pop over the shop just to see if there’s a book I really want, but it will have to be really good to knock Saga and Daredevil off my pull list.

  12. Mara looks very intriguing and I could never turn down a Brian Wood story. And I tip my hat to American Vampire with this being the last issue before going on hiatus.

    BQ: I honestly would rather give New Year’s goals than resolutions. Resolutions to me are not measurable – anybody can say they want to lose weight or get a better job. What matters is how you’ll do them and in what time span. For me, that’s:

    Lose 30 pounds in 6 months
    Save for half a down payment towards a house
    Finish iOS courses in next couple of months to start taking on iPhone/iPad development freelance work
    Reduce comic load to 5-6 books per week and switch to digital (my closets will be thankful for it)

  13. I can’t wait to read Superman Family Adventures. I have a fun time reading this to my three year old.

    BQ: Bulk up to 130 LBS…. Pure Muscle… :0)

  14. Good week. Looking forward to All New X, MP, and Fury Max.

    BQ: I don’t do resolutions. Too much pressure. But I did join a gym months ago and it’s going really well. So that’s something. I also cut back on my drinking (these past two weeks don’t count). I’d like to find a new job, but that I’ve been saying that for years.

  15. Fatale #11, The Manhattan Projects #8, Mara #1, Aquaman #15, Justice League #15, Justice League Dark #15, The Flash #15, Batman Inc. #6.

    Overall, I’m overjoyed/happy with these titles but wobbling a little on The Flash (let’s see how the current arc plays out) & Justice League Dark (will Trinity War be beneficial or detrimental?).

    BQ : To get back into playing piano. To take more risks.

  16. BQ: I’m about to graduate so I’ve got to quit smoking weed for a few months to get a job. Booooo. Y’all better smoke down for me. All day, everyday.

  17. Great start to the year:

    Manhattan Projects
    DD: End of Days
    JL Dark
    Joe Kubert Presents
    Hellboy In Hell
    Punk Rock Jesus

    BQ: Lose weight, which bears a suspicious similarity to last year’s 🙂

  18. Just Manhattan Projects, Iron Man and Damsels for me. Got Amazing Spider-Man two weeks ago.

    BQ: I have two. 1- finish the novel I started writing last year and 2- read all of Shakespeare’s plays. I have read a few over the years and loved them all. This year I am going to make a concerted effort to read every one.

  19. Is it just me or is the link broken…..

  20. Wow, what a great way to start the year – New Avengers, Batman Inc, Punk Rock Jesus, Cobra, Harvest, Manhattan Projects, Planet of the Apes, Great Pacific, Prophet,… I can keep going. I’m really looking forward to hearing the discussion on Spider-Man 700!

    BQ: Write more!

    Another busy week. Looking forward to Hypernaturals and the Punk Rock Jesus finale.

    1. Cut down my subscription list to only books I look forward to. At the moment there’s a lot on there filed under “Buying because I read the last one”.
    2. Read more books. After last year’s All Media Podcast I’ve been waiting for Reamde to be released in paperback. It was in the Christmas stocking. It’s first on the list. I’m starting big.
    3. Be more sensible with money (see 1)
    4. Try to make work something I enjoy, not something I do.

    Happy new year, all.

  22. ALL-NEW X-MEN #5
    FURY MAX #8
    MARA #1
    STAR TREK #16
    TALON #3
    THE FLASH #15

    Interested in Mara… I haven’t been paying attention to it. Wary about another Avengers book, but Hickman has been delivering so far on the main one.

    BQ: Nope!

  23. All-New X-Men 5
    Star Wars: Purge: The Tyrant’s Fist 2

    Also I need to pick up my Omnibus: Clone Wars Volume 3 from the store, which they pulled for me but I haven’t been able to get yet.

    BQ: Weight loss competition with my wife and her sisters. Money is on the line, so it might actually work 🙂

  25. Man, for a week I’d forgotten books were shipping, there’s some good stuff coming out!

    Batman Inc
    Hellboy In Hell
    Willow Wonderland
    Morbius The Living Vampire

    I said I’ll try each Marvel Now and stick w a cpl that I like the most, almost there…….New Years Resolutions
    , I don’t believe in me as they are things you should tell yourself anytime and when made it seems to jinx me by looking at others examples but I do believe in goals and perseverance and my goals are to maintain my perseverance in my goals already in motion.
