If you're anything like me, this year's CCC was filled with books you haven't heard of, and books you'd heard of but never thought to read, and books you'd been meaning to read. As well as some old favorites. Listing all that fell into any of those categories is too much for me. And I fear there were more entries that caused me to say "I should read that" than I ever expect to get around to.
So my question is this: What have you gotten around to? And please, take your time and share as you read/buy/reread comics over the coming months.
At work I've learned it's important to tangibly demonstrate impact, and while Kurt knows we all enjoy and appreciate CCC, I think a hugely important impact is the new discoveries people make.
My entry to the discussion follows.
I picked up my first on impulse at a comic store while visiting home, which I read on the flight back. This was nobody's entry in the CCC, as it was a clearly ineligible nonconsecutively numbered series. But despite that, people talked about it some, and when I saw the big trade, I gave in. Bought it and read the whole 9 issue series on the plane.
Of course I mean Chase. I can see why people are upset it got cancelled so soon. And it's cool to see Williams pre-Promethea. Already a brilliant artis, but before he reached his height.
Next I plan to see what entries I can find in my long boxes that I may not have read. Or I'll just buy Blazing Combat.
