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 4/2:

Time to pick next weeks book :)

I vote for Young X-Men #1. Even though I think that team looks like absolute shit, there's some good creative talent behind it.

Secret Invasion will get enough talk on this board, so I'll vote Young X-Men.

Young X-men 1

Although I'd be fine with spider-Man since it's supposed to deal a bit with the New Avengers

Yeah, but it's the only thing that might beat Young X-Men. Also, the previous issue picked wasn't Wells or Bachalo.

And I really don't want Young X-Men to be the pick.

It'll hopefully put to rest the whole "X-Books never get chosen" narrative. :)

YOUNG X-MEN #1
Written by MARC GUGGENHEIM
Pencils by YANICK PAQUETTE
Cover by TERRY DODSON
Variant Cover by MARC SILVESTRI

In the wake of Messiah CompleX, there are no X-Men and young mutants Rockslide, Blindfold and Dust are alone and directionless. Until the day Cyclops recruits them to hunt the new incarnation of the Brotherhood – and kill them. Joined by a pair of new recruits, the young X-Men learn a hard truth about the world post-Messiah CompleX: sometimes old allies make for deadly enemies.

That's the new concept? The New Mutants are hunting and killing the Brotherhood?

That sucks ass :(

The creative team is solid, but I cant say I am overly interested in the concept or any of the characters.

I was willing to give the new cast a try, especially since they are bringing back a few old favorites like Magma.

But that concept is awful. Just horrible. The appeal of the New Mutants is that they are students, they are good kids living in the mansion and learning to be X-men. Throw that away and what is the point of the book? They just become generic X-team #6 or #8 or however many teams they have now.

The preview for Young X-Men doesn't look very good. It's actually the only X-book I'm not interested in buying.

I like the conflict of liking Guggenhiem and thinking that solicit is one of the stupidest things I've read. I'm voting for Young X-Men, because I have no idea whether I'll love it or hate it going in.

Since we all know Secret Invasion will be talked about, I'm voting for:

American Splendor Season 2 #1

I'm going with Amazing, because while I'll buy Young X-Men, I dunno, just seems like it very well might suck a lot.

I wish New X-Men stayed and just got a new creative team. Or the same one as long as they kept Skottie Young!

Even if Young X-Men does suck (and I agree it's looking bad) the discussion should still be interesting. There are going to be brand new characters and a new direction to discuss.

With ASM, what is there to really say?

C'mon Spider-Man people.

The first Spider-Man was flavored by people's resentment over OMD, now that that has quelled (some) and there is another new interesting team coming on, I'd like to see how people are reacting.

But we already did Slott SM! Although I could probably get behind that one too. From the sounds of the advance pub it's Spider-Man vs. The Thunderbolts, which sounds bad-ass.
