Once again shamelessly stealing this idea from Bleeding Cool

Based on the stories on this site so far, you’d think I was a hardcore DC fan: Not true! I AM a hardcore comics fan, but I’d say less than half of the comics I’ve held onto are from Marvel or DC. I’m just a fan of good comics, of good storytelling in our perfect medium of Words ‘n’ Pictures, and DC has been doing a lot that’s worth talking about lately: The New 52 is bringing a much-needed sales boost into many stores, which means that comics buyers are spending more and/or that lapsed DC readers are returning to comics to see if the New 52 will hold their excitement. Probably both. We’ll see if DC’s current approach (which so far hasn’t done much for me as a reader) works in the long term…

Anyway, I’ll get to Marvel, Dark Horse, Image, IDW, Boom, and all of the other fantastic (and not-so-fantastic) publishers soon – promise!

Here are the week’s most-clicked-on stories:

1. Smart-Ass Signs (still hilarious!)

2. DC New 52: DC’s editors pimpin’ them hos!

3. DC Sellout Shenanigans: Conspiracy or Not? [UPDATED]

6. More Shelf Porn

7. Justice League #1 Review

10. IKEA Redesigns the classic Billy bookshelf (a staple of comics hoarders like me)

11. Foo Fighters protest the Westboro Baptist Church [UPDATED] (and it was Good.)

12. Kevin Smith’s Red State review
