After months of hesitation and throwing ideas around, I finally have a blog. The purpose of this place is to provide a space for my personal summer project: read a comic book a day.

Am I cheating on Star Trek by
about Batman in this?
I’ve decided that for the course of the summer, I will attempt to read a comic a day from the various distributors and from different genres. My instinct is to admittedly stick with Batman comics but having become more interested in this medium, I know that the only way to grow as a fan is to read as many different works as possible.
I should warn you, however, that since I am a relatively new comic book reader, a great deal of my knowledge of comic books comes not only from actually reading works but also reading copious amounts of Wikipedia entries, watching “Justice League Unlimited” and the occasional fanfiction. My enthusiasm will hopefully make up for this.
My ultimate goal is to post daily, or double up when I miss a day. Hopefully, this project will teach me some discipline when it comes to reading and writing, especially before the fall starts and I have to return to classes and pretend to be an adult again.
So, with today being the official start of summer, this project commences. Wish me luck!
