2024 Comic Reading Challenge

I’m finally coming to terms with what type of comic reader I am. I want to read each book as they come out and stay current on the storylines but I have never been able to do that consistently. What I love, though, and can do consistently, is reading collected editions. Complete stories in one sitting. I like reading entire runs once they’re all available and just binging through them one after another. So that’s what I’m going to do from now on.

That said - let’s get caught up on…

32 for the week, 223 for the year so far. Alex Ross’ FF: Full Circle is probably my favorite new(ish) book, if you are Silver Age or Kirby fan read it now, well after reading #51 and Annual #6, it concludes #51 and references Annual #6 a bunch. DC should pay whatever Ross wants for him to continue a Kirby DC book.

The last two #12,13, 400 pages with the main character only appearing for like 40 pages AND IT STILL RULES! Everyone who’s never read a manga should give them a chance, at least. I’m continually impressed by the books I’ve checked out.

I read it awhile back, I really liked the JRJr issues but it fell off some with the (not)Disneyland issues. Cool still, I am too much of an old soul for the NEW insert legacy character, but enjoy all new characters.
