All comics I can read, specially from Batman. Now with the court of the owls.

Some Asimov books. now with short tales II.

Finally, Stormrage, a warcraft history book.

I didn't even bother to list all the comics I would read this year. That would take too long. Initially I was excited for Batman but now that I see it has devolved into two straight Batman family wide cross overs I'm less than enthused. I much prefer buying a single book that tells a complete story rather than getting sucked into buying all those cross overs. Stupid marketing departments.

Some good books along those lines are Chew, Sweet Tooth, Morning Glories, Unwritten, Saga, The Walking Dead, Locke & Key.
