New Comics for 07.04.2012 always goes with steak… but this time the salmon was better


Because 236 years ago we told the British to GTFO, this Wednesday is a national holiday in the United States. Most comic book stores will get their books delivered as per usual on Tuesday and some comic book stores will be open and selling their books on Wednesday. Being the patriotic lot that we are, iFanboy will be closed on Wednesday. This means that you can still come here to discuss and review this week’s books, but we will not be posting any new content. The Pick of the Week will be published on Thursday.


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, Josh, Ali, Chris, Jeff, Matt, and Timmy.

This week Conor Kilpatrick has the Pick of the Week!

    Looking forward to the most? It’s a three way tie between Animal Man, Danger Club and Fury max. Really super disappointed Peter Panzerfaust #5 is still missing and X-O Manowar and Swamp Thing are pushed back.


  16. BQ: None of the above. Give me a spaghetti dinner w/ smoked sausage & Parmesan cheese mixed in & Texas toast.

    That is food heaven.


  17. Salmon. Every single time.

    And I’m getting a bunch of books. Too many. Thanks for the raise, Ms. Boss Lady!

  19. BQ: Neither. Turkey Burgers!!

    Dial H
    Infernal Man-Thing

    AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #7 (OF 12)
    CAPE 1969 #1 (OF 4)
    FURY MAX #4
    G.I. COMBAT #3
    POPEYE #3

    BQ: Grilled salmon.

  21. 7 books this week witch is honestly a good number this week.

    BQ: None of those because im not that into food.

  22. Avengers vs. X-Men (so good) and Earth 2.

    And I’ll have the salmon, please.

  23. Deadpool #57, all the way.

  24. EARTH 2 #3
    FURY MAX #4

    It’s a light week, but I’m actually kind of thankful for that since I’ll be getting a couple weeks worth of books.

    Aw man, gnocci is so, so good, but .. dude, STEAK. Yeah, flat iron steak, medium rare, Caesar salad, and some steamed veggies so I’m not a total stereotype.

  25. Bit of a poopy week for me since two titles will be last ones for me Age Of Apocalypse & Action Comics. But the amazing Invincible Iron Man is out so all is well & a whole lot of Manga as well!

    BQ- being a vegetarian it would be Mushroom Gnocchi over Vegan Risotto!

  26. How many more Before Watchemen to come. i am thinking of not touching Rorschach and Ozymandias. i likd Night Owl and Silk Spectre and Minute men but i think it is for the art and the period, i am sort of disconnecting them in my mind from what has gone before. not out of reverence but it just makes it possible to enjoy them as what they are. I would like to see more period superhero books, Rocketeer shows how great they can be, the voices, the look and the pallete are so great. I want more not Moore just more.

    BQ -A bit of all the above please, that would be a hell of a plate. Made me hungry.

  27. MadCowDzz (@DarylFritz) says:

    Mediocre week…

    ANIMAL MAN #11
    MUPPETS #1 (for my girlfriend)

    BQ – Grilled salmon, hopefully it’s maple-glazed!

  28. Well I just scheduled my salmon fishing trip to lake Ontario, salmon for everyone on me! 😀
