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 12/24:

Immortal Iron Fist #21


Description:
"Danny Rand was not the first Immortal Iron Fist...and he won’t be the last! The year – 3099. The place – a distant planet first colonized a millennium ago by the People’s Republic of China. Now, a humanity oppressed by a totalitarian technological tyrant has just one hope for salvation – the kung-fu freedom-fighting of the Immortal Iron Fist! But his coming is nothing more than a prophecy and a silent prayer...and even if the Iron Fist does arrive, he must first defeat the most powerful weapon the evil robot empire has...Robo Fat-Cobra!"

YES.

I haven't bought an issue since Fraction left, but this looks cool.

YES! Slow week!



Fuck knows when we will get our comics this week, so I might end up missing issues of stuff :)





I'll go Iron Fist, although the Chaykin Cap story could be cool too.

Mister X Condemned #1

Publisher:
Dark Horse

Description:
"Twenty-five years ago, Mister X debuted with a concept so clever and a character so captivating that it influenced an entire generation of comics fans and creators. Today, Motter reclaims the reins and sets out to inspire a whole new generation with Mister X: Condemned, a completely fresh introduction to the elusive Mister X and his dystopian home Somnopolis, the City of Nightmares. With influences from Film Noir to German Expressionism, this story of a city gone mad and the never-sleeping man who's obsessed with saving it will amaze anyone interested in masterpiece storytelling born from the vision of a single iconoclastic creator."

I actually have a pretty heavy week, apparently unlike most in the thread.

That being said, I'm curious about Ms. Marvel #34. It's been an uneven but interesting run and the Spider-Man and Dark Reign ties of the upcoming story seem to make it a good time to cast our collective judgment on it.

I don't have a light week, but it's pretty much devoid of jumping-on points.

Nova looks awesome this week, but it's mid arc. That and USM are probably first out of the bag.

I'll switch to Invincible/Wolfman, if just because reviewing 2 books is novel and I'm getting them anyway...
