Today is a rare weekday off and yesterday was my first chance to get to my LCS in a month. That means I’ve just picked up my first DC Comics from “The New 52” and I’ve got all day to read them. Sounds like a good recipe for some liveblogging…
My schedule the last couple months has been particularly crazy. A promotion at work has soaked up my free time like a sponge and life threw me a few curveballs to keep the positives that come with a promotion in balance. Yesterday was the first time I could swing by my shop in September and I had a nice stack of “The New 52” waiting for me. I’d perused a few at the comic shop in the mall, read some reviews, and I couldn’t help but look at a spoiler here or there – so it’s not exactly all fresh to me, but I’ll be reading everything anew today.
As I’m prone to crazy blog experiments (let’s not talk about DailyThor, okay, I’m going to get that worked back into the schedule, darn it!), I had the silly idea to liveblog my thoughts about each issue as I read it. Fifty-two comics is a lot to read in a day, but let’s face it – these are modern comics, $3 for 7-8 minutes of entertainment. It won’t really take all day to read each one and do a little write-up. And I do mean little – just some first thoughts, what I liked/didn’t, a rating, and a simple yes/no system for if I’m going to keep reading beyond this issue.
I’m going to use one of Searchable/Sortable tables (like we used for our New 52 Solicits a few months back) and I’ll update it as I read each #1. To help make this article not boring at the outset, I got a head start this morning and have Week One ready to go.
As I’m reading along, I’d love to hear what you’ve been thinking about these new titles this month and how much agree or disagree with my assessments!
And, yes, there will be some spoilers…[table “11” not found /]
