Re: DVDTalk Comic Book Challenge Omnibus Thread

Thread for April created. Hopefully I'll do better next month, my reading habits stink this year.

Re: DVDTalk Comic Book Challenge Omnibus Thread

I'm going to set up the October thread later today.

Also, I'm working on a personal checklist to use each month, to help me get my money's worth out of various aspects of my collection. So far, I've come up with this:

Read something from my:


Comixology -
Dark Horse digital -
DC -
FCBD books -
Groupees bundles -
Humble bundles -
Marvel -
original graphic novel -
physical collection -
physical single issue -
3D book -
Treasury edition -
TwoMorrows-

Re: DVDTalk Comic Book Challenge Omnibus Thread

I guess it's never too early to try to decide what we're going to do for the rotating monthly genre/topic for our March and April Challenges.

March is rotating company. This will be the third year, and we did DC and Marvel already. Do we want to pick one of the larger independents, or group all non-big two into the month? Or skip independents and just rotate Marvel/DC?

April is the To Be Determined Challenge, and open to just about any idea. I believe we did Avengers in 2015 and DC's Trinity last year.

Re: DVDTalk Comic Book Challenge Omnibus Thread

It could be interesting to do one or two publishers like Image or Dark Horse just to mix things up.

This is purely self-interest, but what about a cosmic theme to tie in with GotG 2? It'd be a lot more limiting than past years, and largely overlapping with the sci-if challenge, though. And it'd need some defining. But I have a ton of this stuff I want to read.

Re: DVDTalk Comic Book Challenge Omnibus Thread

So March is Company Month. We've done DC and Marvel. What's next? Image? Dark Horse? All independents lumped together? Other?

Re: DVDTalk Comic Book Challenge Omnibus Thread

How about Pick Your Own Company? Possibly with a non big two stipulation?

I'd be fine with that. I've been meaning to start reading Buffy season 8. Now that season 11 is coming out, I am realizing how much I missed those characters.

Re: DVDTalk Comic Book Challenge Omnibus Thread

So, Challenge enthusiasm, while never stellar, is definitely lessening. But I'm undeterred and will continue posting. I'll be gone most of the day, so was just going to pick a random thing for our April "to be determined" topic, so that it'd be here before April starts.

But instead I'll hope for suggestions here and will post a thread when I get home around midnight. In a rush, so perhaps I've forgotten suggestions posted here or in last year's thread.

Re: DVDTalk Comic Book Challenge Omnibus Thread

I did suggest a cosmic theme earlier.

I've read a few different Image titles this month but not discussed them.

Just in time for the final day of the challenge, Comixology is having an Image Wondercon sale. No terms specified so I assume it's BOGO.

Home for a minute before running out to see The Mads tonight.

Cosmic sounds good. Does the second Guardians film drop next month by any chance?
