Okay, since Thud is rarely online when the Midtown list goes up, he's asked me to handle the voting threads. This is not a coup d'etat. :D


Quick summary of what this thread is:

This thread is for everyone to determine what book we will review in the BB Review Thread. In the past we took turns picking a book but now we are openly voting for titles we would like to see reviewed. Everyone is welcome to participate, no need to ask.

After visiting the Midtown shipping list (or another one you prefer) and looking over the choices please nominate one book. At the end of the week (thread closes on Tuesday at 6pm EST) the title with the most votes wins. Feel free to lobby for your choice as much as you please :)

There are no restrictions on what you can nominate and vote. Any publisher (no matter how small) any price (singles, trades, hardcovers ect) and import titles are all fair game.

We will do a new thread every week to do these votes

Here's the list of what is shipping 3/12:

Time to pick next weeks book :)

Hm...not nearly as many choices as last week.

The last time I nominated a Whedon book, it turned into an epic, 500-post battle. :lol:

I'm really not all that interested in Serenity: Better Days(it's just a prequel) or Last Defenders. So I think I'll put a vote out there for Tiny Titans #2. People seemed to like the first one, and it'll be different, to say the least.

Will this be the issue we find out the secret of Lil' Ravager's lil' eyepatch? Is it a remnant of an epic battle in the sandbox? Did she run with scissors one too many times? This comic just may hold the answer! :lol:

Nova 11.

Oh, I guess I should say why.

Its the start of a new storyline and I was always curious about the book.

Serentity: Better Days #1

I'm fine with whatever wins this week, but I'd like to see Nova get reviewed.

Nova, been one of Marvel's best books since it launched. I would be ok with Last Defenders as well, but the preview art kinda turned me off. Jim Muniz has changed his style since his work on "4" and I dont really care for it.

Quite likely true. Doesn't change the fact that it's the book I'm most interested in for next week. And it never hurts to get the word out on more (potentially) good books.

Lately I never see these threads at all until after the Dawg has shut things down.

they are closed at 5 pm central every tuesday.

there is a strategy to the voting thread.

some people like to let it sit and be ignored once their favorite book is in the lead in the hopes that people wont see it and knock thier favorite out of contention.

other times if thier book is loosing they will constantly bump the thread.
