New Comics for 03/31/10 are kind of hungry

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 it out here – Conor, Ron, and Josh.

And what about the rest of the staff? What are they buying? Dave, Jim, Paul, Mike, and Chris.

This week Josh has the Pick of the Week!

Bonus Question: What, specifically, was the last thing you ate?


  1. FYI: IDW’s new status at Diamond has thrown our system for a loop so right now there are no IDW books on the Comics page. We’ll let you know as soon as it is fixed and updated.

  2. Small week for me. Really excited for the Blackest night conclusion and ASM is always a good read. Think I’m gonna skip all the Second Coming stuff.

    BQ: Beef barley soup and salad w/ tuna (trying to lose weight)

  3. Just four books this week. ahh, relaxing.

  4. Stoked for the small week! More money for Wonder Con (alcohol).

     B.Q. A bowl of Honey Nut Oats Cereal (w/ Almonds), 1 % milk, and a cup of Brazillian Coffee.

  5. ASM, Blackest Night, and Fantastic Four.  Going to check out that Cloak and Dagger one-shot too!


    BQ – Ham and Turkey sub from Jersey Giant’s!

  6. This is the quietest week I’ve seen in years. I have less then 10 books on my pull list. I’m astounded.

    Stupid fifth weeks.

  7. Amazing Spider-man, Fantastic Four, X-Force, X-Men: Second Coming, Detective Comics, and since it is a light week I will also pick of the She Hulk book.

     BQ: Cottage cheese topped with bannana slices.

  8. BQ: Navel orange!

  9. Last week I successfully predicted the Pick would be "Uncanny X-Men" by Ron.

    This week I predict it will be only 1 of 2 books: "Blackest Night #8" or "Detective Comics #863."  Knowing Josh’s taste, it will be 1 of those 2.

  10. Amazing Spider-man, Detective Comics and Blackest Night.


    BQ: 2 pieces of Hawaiian Pizza

  11. BQ: A spring roll from this awesome vietnamese place

  12. 13 books this week.. should have pulled one more (maybe an IDW book that isn’t listed yet.)

    that way there would be consistency in my post:

     BQ: a #14 from Jimmy Johns. Light on the Lettuce with a diet coke and chips. 

  13. @conor hey, at least it’s easy on the wallets this week.  I think it’d be great during those light weeks that Marvel or DC put out an online game on their sites to help us pass the time.  Thoughts?

  14. BQ: Unchicken salad sandwich and an apple.

  15. Light week for sure, but I can use the breather.  Blackest Night #8 and X-Men 2nd Coming will be enough for me.

    BQ: Lasagna and salad with avocados and almonds.  The lunch of champions 🙂

  16. Eleven Books this week…fewer than last week *whew*

    Most Excited For:

    1) RASL #7

    2) Xmen Second Coming #1

    3)Fantastic Four #577

    BQ: A croissant with chicken salad and cheddar 

  17. It’s kind of a normal week for me since I’m still getting some books that deserve to be dropped…come on JLA…I’m pullin’ for ya.

    BQ: The last thing I ate was oatmeal from Starbucks. It’s not yet noon here in CA.

  18. I actually like the smaller weeks. Maybe I’ll be able to get through my pile by the weekend.

    Most looking forward to Blackest Night (natch), Amazing Spider-Man and the Juggernault showing up, FF, Incorruptable (I like it better than Irredeemable, actually), second-to-last issue of The Sword, JLA, Rasl, and Franken-Castle.

    I’d also like to throw a plug in there for the Last Stand of New Krypton storyline – this is Classic with a capital C Superman stuff. If World of New Krypton and that whole thing threw you off the book, you can pick up these issues and just have a f’n blast! It’s as good as Johns stuff on the character. Highly, highly recommended.

    BQ: A bottle of water and salt-less mini pretzels. Dieting sucks balls (which aren’t on my diet, either) 

  19. rosemary and olive oil triscuits.

  20. blackest. night.


    bq: chips and salsa 

  21. BQ: Soy crisps


    My Pull List

  22. Slow week here. Previews, Dark Wolverine, and my FCBD 2010 COMM ARTIST SERGIO PURPLE T/S XL


    Subway – roasted chicken breast

  23. Josh’s last chance to pick/ignore a Blackest Night book. 🙂


  24. Man that is truly a quiet week, and I’m a tad disappointed especially with a holiday weekend.  Does this make POW easier or tougher??  Still, Blackest Night, Detective, Spidey and FF is a nice quartet along with some other decent stuff.

    BQ: Cadburys chocolate mini eggs

  25. This was going to be a completely anemic week for me, seeing as how I was only going to pick up 5 or so books. However, I’m going to be picking up a few extra things, like the Cloak and Dagger one shot , since it features Mark Brooks on art. Otherwise, I’m really looking forward to the final Blackest Night chapter, as I am the beginning of X-Men: Second Coming. The final issue of Necrosha is also coming out, and while I haven’t read the last 2 or 3 issues of it in X-Force, I think I’m going to get this one just to see how it ends.

    BQ: A McDonalds Souther Chicken Sandwich. I’ve been in the mood for a Chick-Fil-A sandwich for awhile, but being as there are none even remotely near me, I have to settle for this substitution. But it’s just not the same. IT’S JUST NOT THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I started to lose my sanity there a bit

  26. Oh, and Punisher! Mustn’t forget that awesomeness..

  27. A nice light week of AWESOME! Amazing Spider-Man, Blackest Night, Detective Comics(I’m gonna drop this untill Rucka and Williams come back in a few months), Fantastic Four, and the Punisher has against all odds become my most anticipated book.

    BQ: A Chicken Quesidilla with sour cream on the side and a Pepsi

  28. and I may pick up that Cloak and Dagger one shot. Maybe.

  30. A surprisingly big fifth week for me at 7 books.  I’m looking forward to the new Sword (it sucks that the series ends with issue 24, but man, is this some good stuff), Inhumans, ASM, Blackest Night and Detective.  I may splurge and pick up the next Preacher trade if I’m feeling frisky, but I think my wallet may overrule that.

    BQ: An oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.  Oh yes, it was delicious.

  31. Blackest Night! I’m glad this is ending, great stuff, but I need to move on. Rasl! amazing!!! and the Fantastic Four!

     BQ: Peanut butter crackers, seconds before that a box of raisins, a small salad, and pizza hut bread sticks, The cheapes campus food with whatever I can find in my backpack

  32. Pretty piss weak week. Blackest Night. Detective, Incorruptable. that’s about it. 


    BQ: Typically, i get to work early so i can check my emails and fuck around on the net before starting. And let me be totally clear, ifanboy is a perfect example of fucking around of the net. So my point is i ate some wheat bix.



  33. In case you missed it, IDW books are now on the Comics page.

  34. Really light week but still looking forward to Blackest Night, Amazing and Detective Comics  


    BQ: Cashews 

  35. Solid week which leaves me a bit worried about cash going into Wondercon.

  36. 4 books for me, which is just how I like it.

    BQ: Entenmans chocolate truffle cake! yummy! 

  37. Bigger week for me this week compared to last, has to be Blackest Night that I’m looking forward to the most. Can’t wait to see how it ends and connects/leads to Brightest Day.

  38. Blackest Night, Yo!


    BQ: Coors Light…………………………………………………………………… 

  39. Blackest Night, Detective Comics, Wonder Woman and Tarot Witch of the Black Rose for me. And those first three are all coming to WonderCon with me to get signed by Geoff Johns, Greg Rucka and Gail Simone respectively.

    BQ: A few ginger snaps. They were on sale for 99 cents a box so I bought three boxes.

  43. Lookin forward to Blackest Night and Detective.

    Is Second Coming a terrible jump-on point for someone who hasn’t read anything but Whedon’s Astonishing run since the Morrison New X-Men days? I’ve been casually reading X-Men related articles for years, but haven’t cracked a book open in quite some time. Maybe it’s all this movie news, but I’ve been jonesing for some mutant action lately.

    BQ: Strawberry Pop-Tarts and coffee.

  44. I can’t decide whether to pick up the Second Coming books or to wait for the HC. I want to read it now but A HC would go nicely with my Messiah Complex HC. What do you guys think.

    Adventure Comics #9
    Blackest Night #8 (OF 8)
    Detective Comics #863
    Fantastic Four #577
    Gotham City Sirens #10
