New Comics for 01.09.2013 might still have to go ARGO

A 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 and your pull lists from appearing on your user profiles as they normally do.

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.

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 Josh Flanagan has the Pick of the Week!

Bonus Question: What was your favorite film of 2012?


  1. BQ: Definitely The Dark Knight Rises followed by The Grey

  2. This week’s comic haul is:

    Superior Spidey
    Scarlet Spider
    Secret Avengers
    Infinite Vacation (though I’ve totally forgotten anything about it)
    Wolverine and the X-Men

    And potentially:

    TMNT: The Secret History of the Foot Clan
    Thor (have seen nothing but unabashed praise for it, so feel I am missing out)

    Film of 2012? Unsurprisingly The Avengers with Amazing Spidey a close second.

  3. How about a fix to the Recommendations widget that makes it stop recommending Spider-Woman #1?

    Comics? Who knows, I ordered them 3 months ago.

    BQ – I’d have to say The Hobbit was my favorite, but I really don’t remember what else I saw. I thought the super hero movies were not nearly as captivating as The Hobbit was – DKR, Avengers were OK popcorn flicks, but nothing great.

  4. I’m looking forward to Detective #16 the most this week. Layman has been great so far.

    BQ: Favorite film of 2012 would definitely have to be The Dark Knight Rises. Django Unchained is runner-up.

  5. DDangelico DDangelico (@DavidDangelico) says:

    My pull-list is as follows:

    Animal Man
    Detective Comics
    Earth 2
    Swamp Thing
    Peter Panzerfaust
    The Walking Dead
    Fantastic Four
    Superior Spider-Man
    Star Wars
    Secret Service

    BQ: As of right now my favorite has been Django Unchained. Though I still need to see Zero Dark Thirty.

  6. BQ: I only saw The Hobbit and The Avengers, and of those two, the Hobbit was the only one I saw in a theater. I’m not really a movie person. I’ll let you guys who actually like movies decide 🙂 And then I might watch that. Probably not.

  7. filippod filippod (@filippodee) says:

    9 Marvels and 2 Dark Horses

    BQ: Moonrise Kingdom

  8. The best movie of 2012 was “Cabin in the Woods”. So says Doom!

  9. Thor #4
    Punisher: War Zone #3
    Walking Dead #106

    BQ: Still Avengers. I had almost as much fun watching The Hobbit but Avengers was just a better paced movie. Speaking of fun, have you guys seen The Raid: Redemption?

  10. Nice little short image week with Clone, The Legend Of Luther Strode & Mind The Gap!

    BQ- Amour by Michael Haneke

  11. I’m pulling 3-4 books but Superior Spider-Man is the only comic I’m really anticipating this week.

    BQ: My top three is definitely The Master, Django Unchained and Moonrise Kingdom in some order. Probably Master at #1.

  12. BQ: I’d have to say Argo was the best but Amazing Spider-Man is the one I saw most in theaters because i am, of course, a full grown adult.

  13. BQ: From what I saw, a tie with The Avengers and Skyfall both being excellent.

  14. Thor
    Walking Dead
    Star Wars
    Detective Comics
    Earth 2
    GL New Guardians, very close to being cut after I dropped GL Corp after last issue.

    I refuse to read Doc Ock Spidey, I just can’t bring myself to try. I read 700 and was bummed.
    I tried Animal Man twice, it just ain’t my cup of beer.

  15. wow small stack for me this week…Thor, Wolverine and X-men, Walking Dead.

    BQ – Dark Knight Rises – because things don’t often work out for poor Bruce.

  16. Something is funky when you click “Your Comics” at the top for the last few weeks. It’s taking me to last week’s pulllist instead of this week’s one.

  17. Scarlet Spider 13
    Secret Avengers 36
    Superior Spider-man 1
    Swamp Thing 16

    BQ: Avengers

  18. Absolute Batman and Robin: Reborn, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Star Wars, Peter Panzerfaust, Punisher: WZ, Thor: GoT. Great week ahead of me, even though the Absolute probably won’t arrive from amazon until next week.

    BQ: Ahh, don’t know…Top 5 in no order- Argo, Django Unchained, Avengers, Prometheus, Lawless.

  19. Earth 2 #8, Worlds’ Finest #8, Change #2, End Times of Bram & Ben #1, Point of Impact #4.

    BQ : The Dark Knight Rises.

  20. Looking forward to Thor, Star Wars, and TWD.

    BQ: Tough one. Great year. There were a lot of good movies in 2012. I’d have to go with The Avengers, only because I’ll never forget the experience in that midnight showing. What a ride. Honorable mentions to Skyfall and DKR, both of which I saw four times in theaters.

  21. I have to see Promethus, Argo and Django real soon…

  22. I’m pulling one comic for the first time in forever.. Hopefully Thor is good! Looks like I’ll be catching up on my trades.

  23. BQ: For a Good Time Call…

  24. BQ: haven’t seen django or Argo yet. My top5 are Seven Psychopaths. Looper. Holy Motors. Prometheus. The Avengers.

    Actually a awesome year for movies. Beasts of the southern wild, THE cabin in the woods, The Master, and DKR were also really good. Plus the best porno movie in at least 4 years came out in 2012, An Anal Tribute to Rube Goldberg Vol. 3: BILLIARDS.

  25. BQ:
    Batman vs. (fill-in-the-blank)? The answer is always Batman. DARK KNIGHT RISES. 2nd place: Moonrise Kingdom. 3rd: Lincoln. Runners Up: Argo and Django.

    Still need to see The Master, Zero Dark and Skyfall.

    Pulling Star Wars, W&X-Men, Detective, Walking Dead and Spawn. Teetering on the Batman & Robin Morrison Absolute. Can’t decide, but know I’ll regret it eventually if I don’t.

  26. BQ: The Master. Surprised no one was talking about it, not even for the Ifanboy Media show.

    Detective Comics
    Dial H
    Sweet Tooth

  27. Getting:
    Action comics, animal man, phantom stranger, swamp thing.

    BPRD: the abyss of time, GL new guardians annual.

    BQ: Django unchained & cabin in the woods.

  28. I’m gonna miss Morrison when he’s off after #17.

    BQ: The Dark Knight Rises

  29. Action comics
    Detective comics
    Superior spider-man
    Fantastic four
    Star Wars

    BQ: by far, the best movie I saw in 2012 was Butter. It isn’t even close.

  30. This week’s pull list has me most excited for EARTH 2, and AVENGERS ARENA. But WALKING DEAD and ACTION COMICS will be waiting to make me smile, too 🙂

    BQ: I really enjoyed ARGO, and I’m pretty sure it’s going to win Best Picture at the Oscars, and I’m okay with that. That being said? Some movies I loved just as much from last year are… CHRONICLE, THE HUNGER GAMES, THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, AVENGERS, PROMETHEUS, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, LOOPER, SKYFALL, and LES MISERABLES.

    Great year for movies… as well as comics, TV, podcasts, music… just like iFanboy’s year-end wrap-up podcast said. Thanks, 2012!

  31. BQ: Seven Psychopaths.

  32. aurgail aurgail (@aurelgaillard) says:

    This week’s haul:
    DIAL H 8
    EARTH 2 #8

    BQ: probably Cabin in the Woods, but I haven’t had a chance to see Django or Seven Psychopaths yet.

  33. BQ: Moonrise Kingdom

  34. Animal Man: Animal vs. Man (TP)
    Wonder Woman: Guts (HC)

    BQ: There’s a lot I still haven’t seen, but I’m going with The Dark Knight Rises.

  35. Wrkngclasshero (@joinedtofollow) says:

    A good week for me.

    EARTH 2

    BQ: Probably DKR but my 3 year old keeps me from seeing tons of movies.

  36. It’s a strange Dark Horse only week for me with:
    Star Wars #1
    The Strain #10

    BQ: The Perks of Being a Wallflower #1

    Followed by:
    The Hobbit #2
    Django Unchained #3
    Prometheus #4
    Looper #5

  37. Big week for quality books! A lot of these look great.

    BQ: Seven Psychopaths or VHS. Both were really original and fun to watch.

  38. BQ: Favorite movie was The Avengers closely followed by Skyfall. The “best” movie I saw was probably Argo.

  39. -Star Wars 1
    -Thor: God of Thunder 4
    -Ultimate Comics X-Men 21

    BQ: Tie between Marvel’s The Avengers and Les Misérables.

  40. BQ: Argo by a very wide margin.

    EARTH 2

    BQ: Avengers for sure. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked Spiderman. I thought it was tons better than any of the Rami movies. I didn’t see Argo or Django. I will say I haven’t seen a good Af-flick since Good Will Hunting. I hope you guys aren’t pulling my leg.

  42. Earth-2
    BPRD The Abyss of Time
    Cable and X-Force
    Savage Dragon on Trial
    Thor God of Thunder
    Mars Attacks KISS
    Adventure Time
    Secret Avengers
    Detective Comics
    Superior Spider-Man (I have to see how this is handled plus Stegman’s art is great w Spidey lads)
    Star Wars #1

    Getting too many again but many I’m reading are minis that are almost over or just beginning, few are on goings that are ending and a cpl are one shots then a cpl are series I’m only reading the 1st arc or testing out (Marvel Now!)

    BQ: DKR cause it went full circle with the 1st two movies, while connecting em all in the right ways,legacy, Gotham, what Batman stands for…while giving closure and hope for more at the same time. Tom Hardy made the instant all time best on screen villains list with Bane too.

    Prometheus as well, it too connected the Alien saga while being a stand alone movie and going off in totally new directions while raising some questions and answering others.

    Need to see Skyfall, Argo,Django and The Hobbit..really wanna see Seven Psychopaths too.


    It’s a light enough week I may skip the visit to the comic shop and instead catch up on the stack of stuff I haven’t read yet from last week. Home renovation, a major holiday, and reading are not the best of allies.

    Punisher: War Zone has been a tough title for me. Rucka’s writing is top notch, but the art … eh. Dropping Earth 2. I *think* I missed an issue or two somewhere in the series and the book just isn’t really connecting with me enough for me to find out for sure.

    BQ: Avengers with Django, Dark Knight Rises, and Skyfall in a knife fight for second place.
