Tradio #0 - The Beginning-ing

Well...been sick lately and haven't had the energy to post.  Been bad because I wanted to post something at least five times a week.  Been good in that it has given me some perspective and some time to think about what I wanted to do with this little blog of mine and some of the nerdiness that I want to post.  What I have come up with is that I have been slowly over the years accumulating quite the number of graphic novels and I thought to myself, what better way to get more out of them then to maybe do a weekly review of one of them.  Some weeks it will be a review of a original graphic novel or collected mini series.  Other weeks it will be the first volume of an ongoing series.  Just depends on what I am feeling like.  My plan is to look at it objectively and see if the overall arc works and relate whether, in the case of volumes from ongoing series, it does a good job making you want to keep reading.  I will try to keep the reviews spoiler-free so that I don't rob you from the enjoyment if you want to read one after I talk about it.  I also will be giving away ones that I am done with and don't really want to keep in my collection for one reason or another.  Here are some of the ones that I am considering:

Shew...that just might keep me busy for a while.  Any other titles will be entertained and anything off the list that you want me to review sooner, I am more than willing to do...just drop me a line or leave me a comment. If you are a writer or artist or both with something you want me to review, feel free to send it to me.  If you are a shop that wants something reviewed to drum up sales...let me know.  Anyway...the first one will be up a little later this week, not sure which I will pick yet, so suggestions are welcome.  Talk to you soon, imaginary readers.
