Comic books, man.
One of the things I’ve always wanted to do is create an online comic, or write a comic book. The only problem is that I can’t draw worth a hill of beans. And I’m not a super avid reader of comics, but there are a select few that I’ve found that I enjoy.
So I thought I would spend the month of August reading and reviewing comic books – both physical and online. I have a bit of a backlog building on my shelf that I want to power through. Posts are going to come out at least weekly, but I will likely have some bonus posts to throw up because I think I have more comics to talk about than there are weeks in the month.
Here’s a preview of some of the comics I’m going to review, in no particular order:
– Atomic Robo Volume 1
– Universe Vol 01 (from http://panelsyndicate.com/)
– The Private Eye Vol 01 (from http://panelsyndicate.com/)
– Barrier (from http://panelsyndicate.com/)
– Batman “A Word to the Wise” (Strange Zellers tie-in from 1992)
– Strange Tales of Oscar Zahn
– Poe Dameron: Black Squadron (Vol 1, issues 1-6)
– Suicide Squad “Blood & Snow” Part Two (near as I can tell, issue 12 from April 1988)
That list in itself grew as I was typing up this entry as I find more things to read. This is not ideal but also great at the same time. Anyway, I have a lot of reading to do (and this is on top of trying to finish a bunch of novels) so I’d better get cracking!
