    Default Book Club - 1500 books or burst

    Hey hey

    I'm starting a club which keeps track of what you read for 1 yr.
    I know i shoulda started this closer to Jan 1st, but i'm kinda lazy, didn't think of it and was busy reading comic books.
    You can read as many books as ya want, just list the runs, tpb or single issues you read.
    I'm counting classic and new books tpb included. So if an essential has reprinted 21 books, you have read 21 books.
    Have fun!!!

    I very much doubt if I'll make it to 1,500, but I'll do my best to read at least 1,000 comics this year (I have over 6,000 in my collection). I've been keeping track of what I've read since late in 2009. In 2010 I read 915. Last year, I only made it to 773. I didn't have time do read as much as I wanted because I ended up putting in a lot of OT at my job for a few months.

    July total: 98

    Best comic read in July: I like all the Knightquest/KnightsEnd stuff. The Joker story in Tec 671-673 is a highlight. Also, I really like LotDK 63, "Climax" pt 10 of KnightsEnd. Honorable mention to Fatale by Brubaker and Phillips.

    August:


    Batman 1-12 (DCnU)
    Batman Annual 1 (DCnU) (counting as 2 comics)
    Nightwing 1-9 (DCnU)
    Batman and Robin 9-12 (DCnU)
    Batman 550 (counting as 2 comics)
    Chase 1-5

    August total: 34

    Best comic read in August: Snyder's DCnU Batman run was enjoyable, but I'm gonna go with Batman 550 as the best comic I read this month. The introduction of Cameron Chase by Doug Moench, Kelly Jones, and JHWIII.

    September:


    Chase 6-9; 1,000,000
    Detective Comics 854-865
    Batwoman 0, 1-11

    Batman Adventures Holiday Special (counting as 2 comics)
    Batman and Robin Adventures 1-25 (counting #25 as 2 comics)
    Batman and Robin Adventures Annuals 1-2 (counting each as 2 comics)

    September total: 113

    Favorite comic read in September: Hard to pick. It was all great stuff. As much as I enjoyed all the Batman Advs stuff, I'm gonna go with the Rucka/Williams Batwoman Detective run, specifically the "Go" arc from 858-860.

    October total: 73

    Best comic I read in October: meh....mediocre month. Gonna go with the "Sinestro" arc from GL 1-5 as the best. Got caught up on reading some newer stuff. Ended up dropping BoP, Flash, Justice League, and Aquaman. The rest stays on my pull list for now.

    November:


    Green Lantern 9-12 (DCnU)
    Green Lantern Corps 9-12 (DCnU)
    Green Lantern Annual 1 (DCnU) (counting as 2 comics)

    Only "The Player On The Other Side," one of the best Batman stories of the pre-Crisis '80s: Batman vs. The Wrath, a costumed hitman whose criminal parents were shot and killed by Jim Gordon the same night Joe Chill murdered the Waynes. Script by Mike W. Barr, art by Mike Golden at the peak of his powers. So, no, not much.

    It's worth mentioning that the Batman Special was recently reprinted in a trade titled "Batman: The Wrath". The trade also includes Batman Confidential 13-16, which was a sequel to the special done by Tony Bedard and Rags Morales. In my opinion that arc was one of the best in the Batman Confidential series.

    Of course, it needs to be asked whether that statement actually means anything

    Seriously though, is the sequel a "must read" or just pretty good? The only Bedard stuff I've ever read was his post-Unity Valiant stuff (not bad), but can he handle Batman as well as Mike W. Barr?
