(Y-11) new comic books and back to reality

This passed week I did not read as much as usual.

I was taking a break to recharge some batteries and go visit an old friend, the sea.

It was quite relaxing and I enjoyed catching some sun and eating.

Beautiful scenery to be really enjoy, thus my lack of a great progress, but have no fear, because next weekend, I’ll devote myself to the 24in48 readathon and it will be really productive.

Right now I am working on Memories of Ice, because I want to be done by early Friday morning and start with my readathon with a couple of short novels from a Mexican editorial house, Paraiso Perdido, but more on that later.

For now I’ll use my new comic book acquisitions as a palate cleanser, this time it will be issue number six of Justice League Dark and the ninth and final issue of DC Heroes in Crisis.

Off to read.

(Y-11) Old school Monday… All-Star Comics #8

Hello, and welcome to another installment of Old School Monday.

For this occasion I read the issue that had the privilege to be the first appearance of iconic character Wonder Woman.

Originally released on the last day of 1941, it introduces us to Princess Diana and Paradise Island, and the turn of events that lead her to leave the peaceful island.

This origin story expands to Sensation Comics # 1 and eventually to the first issue of her solo comic, Wonder Woman, which I’ll read the following weeks.

As an added bonus this issue also features the Justice Society of America, including some of my favorite characters like Sandman and Spectre.

I love this type of comic and the way they establish a graphic standard for storytelling for generations to come.

For now, I’ll go back to trying to chip away some pages of Memories of Ice.

(Y-11) The Dreaming before sleep

I’ll close out my reading day with a little over 15 hours on my reading clock and probably closing in on 700 pages for this week.

Tonight’s repertoire will include numbers seven and eight of the current run by Simon Spurrier on The Dreaming, part of the Sandman Universe.

And the latest numbers of DC Heroes in Crisis, numbers five thru eight.

Off to read.

(Y-11) last stretch of the night

As I enter the final hours of the day, there is still some 17 plus hours to go on my weekly reading clock.

I could chip away almost 3 hours, and hopefully I’ll slip another one before I succumb to sleep.

Right now I’m reading Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol and the third book of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Memories of Ice.

Lets see how much I can achieve.

Off to read.

(Y-11) make it of break it

Entering the weekend and I have still 20 hours left in the clock and only 285 total pages for the week.

So, it’s time to put some effort to this and finish the week strong.

I’ll start with some DC Comics stories, Batman Who Laughs, Justice League Dark and Green Lantern.

Jump into The Malazan book of the Fallen.

And finish the day with Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol.

Off to read.

(Y-11) new comic books

I went yesterday to pick-up the new comic books for this week.

As I mentioned last time, here in Mexico, it is a whole adventure to find those new books, but that doesn’t discourage me.

To start, there was waiting for me the fourth volume of the Prince Valiant.

4 down, 72 volumes to go.

Also, the eight issue of DC Heroes in Crisis, and the start of a new series of one of my favorite characters, Green Lantern, written by one of my favorite writers, Grant Morrison, this looks really promising.

I will make tomorrow a comic book day, I just have to find the fifth number of DC Heroes in Crisis and I’m all set.

But tonight it’s back to Genabackis

(Y-11) this evening’s reading

I am approaching the halfway point of Fire & Blood, little over 50 pages to go, and maybe I can close that gap a bit before succumbing to sleep.

Also, I will like to read the latest issue of Heroes in Crisis, well at least in the Mexican edition, which is number 5 of the series.

Off to read.

(Y-11) 12 years to go

Today it officially marks the 12 years left notification until the deadline to achieve 1,000,000 pages.

This is because, today, I turn 38 years old.

And since the whole idea of this crazy project is to read that gargantuan amount before my 50th birthday, well there you go, the clock strike again, and I have only 12 years ahead.

Today I received some more awesome material to keep on piling up those numbers.

Three pretty cool new graphic novels

And to put the cherry on the cake, some awesome new kicks, one of my favorite things, besides books and coffee of course.

Brings me back to the days when I watch his airness dominate the court.

Now I’ll enjoy the last few hours of the day and read some more.

(Y-11) tonight’s reading

I’m starting to pick-up the pace.

Today, I was reading some graphic novels based on the fantastic world of Dark Crystal, in case you didn’t see it, Netflix, just announced a 10-part series, Age of Resistance , coming out on August 30

So, I had to get back to it’s mythological beginnings.

For tonight my reading will consist of a couple of issues of the DC comics series Heroes in Crisis.

And I’ll keep chipping away at Fire & Blood.

And hopefully tomorrow I can finally fo an pages update.

Off to read.

No one ever reads the same book. We all react to the written word differently. The following are my opinions regarding the books I have read.
