I've already put 46, 47 & 48 on my pull list.

Phillip said...

Remind me again why you don't run DC Comics, Bully? Vote Bully 2012!

Siskoid said...

Awesome ideas, even the jokey ones. The only real stinker is #52, but you gotta let the proles have their fun.

Dave Carter said...

A list full of much awesomeness.

I'm totally in for #12, #25, #28, #39, #40, #42, #45, #46, #47, & #48.

And they can have their #52, as long as they keep that crap out of the other 51 titles.

Rainbird said...

OK, I want #47. I'm sure Sergio would be up to it too. And I loved #48. Sugar and Spike rule.

Scott Bryan said...

I really think this whole reboot thing is just a stunt. I mean 52 new books? Why not 43 or 29 or 56? Why the exact number for alternate universe at DC? I think it’s a fake reboot tied into a Crisis story. They’ll bring it all back.

Scott Bryan said...

Oh! And I want…

Sleestak said...

I think you just solved the "Jimmy Olsen problem". He should be running or working for a PR firm that handles super-heroes and even villains. Lots of story opportunities there.

SallyP said...

Oh...My...God. I can't think of a single book that I WOULDN'T buy...with the possible exception of #52.

And may I just say that #10 would be the ginchiest!

These are all just fabulous.

Evan Waters said...

This fixes everything, as far as I can tell. Good show.

The Reverend Charles said...

You know, you could get a pretty good psych profile out of what a person would pull from this list.....

The Reviewer said...

This is the best reboot ever! I would buy all of them in print and digital. Seriously funny stuff!

Eyz said...


Awesome! Great funny (and actual ideas).
DC needs to do that Aquaman title for real XD
