(Y-11) Old school Monday… Wonder Woman (1942-1986) #1

Hello and welcome to another Old School Monday.

On this occasion, and in spite of my massive reading hangover, this due to the 24in48 readathon, I took the time to read this week’s comic, which follows the adventures of Wonder Woman in her own solo series.

This time she has several adventures in the world of men, from protecting some circus elephants, to defeating an evil Nazi commander and to top it off, the taming of a wild bull somewhere in Mexico.

I think it is really interesting seeing how other people where stereotypically portrait, I guess it is part of the general consensus of the era, but it is important that these comic book are kept intact so we can see how far we have come, but always be conscious that there some more roads ahead of us.

The part the I loved about the book is the imagery that portraits were Wonder Woman got her powers.

Well, I got back to take it slow, and hopefully tomorrow I’ll pick up right we’re I left off.

Off to read.

(24in48 readathon) Reading hangover

My 24in48 readathon was a complete success.

This time around I completed the 24 hours and read some amazing books.

My total in pages was 2,960, this thanks to 16 graphic novels, 1 book and about 175 pages from Memories of Ice, yeah still working on that behemoth.

Here is the complete list:

Books

  • Apocrifa
  • Memories of Ice (from page 589 to 764)

Graphic Novels

  • Principe Valiente (1938)
  • Principe Valiente (1939)
  • Principe Valiente (1940)
  • Hellboy Vol. 5
  • Hellboy Vol. 6
  • The Crow Midnight Legends Vol. 1
  • The Crow Midnight Legends Vol. 2
  • The Crow Midnight Legends Vol. 3
  • Batman (DC Comics Rebirth) Vol. 6
  • Persepolis
  • Pathfinder: Goblins!
  • Giant Days Vol. 1
  • The Spire
  • Lumberjanes Vol.1
  • Underwater Welder
  • Sweet Tooth Book One

As I was saying, a total success.

Also, it greatly helped my year of reading.

I now have a total of 35,788 pages for this the eleventh year of reading, still have 17, 212 pages left on this year’s goal and 83 days to do it.

On things concerning my reading schedule and my next big milestone, 500,000 pages, this intense reading session was of great help.

I am 38 days behind schedule, down from 53 days the last time I checked, and my calculated date for reaching the 500,000 page milestone moved from January 10, 2029, to October 31, 2028.

That is 72 days of progress.

All in all, I am very happy with the results, I’ll take the rest of the morning off, and read my Old School Monday comic book and I’ll see you later.

Off to read… well in a little while.

It is a really demanding and satisfying challenge, and in this my third time, I participated I finally got to my goal.

(24in48 readathon) second update

I have been reading for 7 hours and 24 minutes, a little behind schedule but I am confident that I’ll achieve the 14 hours.

I am closing in on 1,000 total pages read, and I plan too at least read 3,000 total pages.

I have finished 8 graphic novels, read some of Memories of Ice and I am about to start with the second part of Apócrifa.

My next update will be when I cross the halfway point.

Off to read.

(24in48 readathon) first reading session

I am off to a good start.

2 hours and 12 minutes off the clock

I finished the first part of Apócrifa, the white book,a blend of short stories exploring the eternal need of humans to explore and find the secrets of the universe.

Tomorrow, I’ll start the day with some graphic novels and a bit of Memories of Ice, and read the second part of Apócrifa, the black book.

Nighty night.

(Y-11) a test run

I’m having one of my last long reading sessions, a sort of warm up for tomorrow’s grand event.

And of course I am chipping away at Memories of Ice, which I am aiming to finish it on Saturday afternoon.

As you can see above, I have about 9 hours left of reading, and I’ll try to push that down to close to 7 hours by the time I start my readathon.

For now,I’ll squeeze one last reading session before I succumb to Morpheus.

Off to read.

(Y-11) and then, craziness followed.

As I am preparing to embark on the 24in48 readathon, I came across another reading challenge for the next week.

Reading Rush is comprised of 7 challenges, one for each day of the week, and it starts on July 22 and runs until July 28, so I thought, why not close out my vacation period with a bang

Hopefully I can finish this two challenges, is going to be grueling, but I’m up for it.

Also, I could not finish Memories of Ice, so, I’ll squeeze it in my weekend of reading.

Now, off to read.
