It’s been a while since my last blog. A lot has happened. Trump, for better or worse is our president, my job has been reorganized and I lost a few peers in the workplace, and sadly … my dog passed. As a result my comic book readings stalled for a while (and piled up in a dark recess of my home), as I dealt with some difficult life changing events. Thankfully my pull list @MidtownComics remained in place.
Nonetheless, I’ve made some changes to my comic book reading preferences between now and then. Their is now a marked decrease in my weekly Marvel pulls (still some gems there though); but I also made some new additions across some DC and Independent titles.
I’m also going to try a different tact within this blog. I’ll continue publishing quotes, but now will do so within a written review–seems to be the thing to do to sing the praises of your favorite current book. The reviews will use a basic 10 scale scoring system, with a ‘BUY’ or ‘READ’ recommendation (albeit it will be more intuition than science for me).
Also, unless I say otherwise, you can safely assume I purchased any book I review. I’m not for sale; I buy my comics with my hard earned dollars workin’ for The Man. In addition, I plan to change the look and feel of this blog site, but that’s a work in progress–keep an eye out for that, it’s coming sooner than you think.
AND in that vein check out my first review of 2017 on 451 Media’s Red Dog #3 …
