Having accepted the Blogaround challenge (in this post) and then reading that Evan very kindly said nice things about me in this post, after I emailed & blogged some constructive criticism of his site after he asked for opinion of his site, and saw that he got some good criticism from other kindly comic bloggers, it got me thinking – would it be brazen of me to ask for your opinion of this blog? I primarily post for myself but I also want other people to read my blog, so it would be helpful and interesting to know what people think of the blog and what they would want to read here as well.
So, I WANT YOU AND YOUR OPINIONS – I want your non-clandestine criticisms …
Please feel free to either email or leave a comment with your thoughts, criticisms and suggestions regarding this blog; all will be gratefully accepted. Thank you in advance.
And now, I’m going to tell you what comics I will be buying this week for my own nefarious reasons:
Jack Cross #1
Legion of Super-Heroes #9
Queen & Country: Declassified v2 #2
Note that I am not getting Q&C: Declassified v3 because it is not by Mr Rucka, no offence to Mr Johnston. This is probably very silly but I’m not a fan of spin-off material done by someone other than the original creator. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been burned by bad experiences (which I have erased from my memory, as I can’t recall any specific examples) or if it’s a rule of thumb supposedly skewing towards a principle. I feel bad because it is Oni but don’t want to go back on my guideline.
I’m looking forward to Jack Cross, as I’m partial to Warren Ellis, spies and violent gun-play, which is covered by this single book – how lucky am I? Daredevil #76 begins Bendis & Maleev’s final arc, so I’m expecting big things; Bendis has been telling some very good stories, so his final tale should be a doozy.
In other stuff, Greg lets you know that you should own Avengers Forever, and he is quite correct. Logan answers my question regarding why he has so many crap DVDs in his collection. And Peter David talks about the new X-Factor book [EDIT: dead link], which is fortunately not called New X-Factor.
