From the first day I started this blog my goal was always to update it daily. After this past week I realized that to keep this vow alive changes have to take place, changes in regards to the reviews. As it stands right now I have four regular features: The Rankings, Coming Attractions, Covers of the Week, and Monday Musings. The other three days rest on the shoulders of the reviews coming out but sometimes you can’t count on them to meet their deadlines because…life happens. Work, planning my Dad’s birthday party, the start of Christmas shopping, plus this and that resulted in a major time crunch this week.
One day I’ll get the reviews back on track to a more consistent basis but until that day comes I’ve come up with a solution to fill the void. The reviews are generally more time-consuming than the other features so I’ve decided on creating three new regular features in order for this blog to maintain its’ once-a-day schedule. Reviews will still be coming out (hopefully 3-4 review features containing 3-4 comics per feature) but they won’t be coming out on the same day each week. To add consistency I’ve decided on the following new features:
In this first new feature I’ll highlight and offer my opinions on any comic-related news that occurred during the week. This will included news about comic books of course but also news regarding comic-related movies, tv shows, video games, etc. I’ll also give a shout-out to some favourite comic blog entries and have a social media section involving Twitter.
The second feature will highlight each week a certain comic character from either DC, Marvel, or the rest rotating from the publicly well-known to the not so famous. It will include bios, key issues, and other fun facts.
The final new feature will take us on a visual comic cover tour of the past starting with Detective Comics and Amazing Spider-Man. Each week I’ll display all the covers for a single year for both titles starting with Detective Comics #27 and Amazing Spider-Man #1. A trip down memory lane is sure to follow.
So that’s what is happening. The new schedule will be posted in this week’s edition of Monday Musings. Have any thoughts/opinions on the new features? Think of any others that you’d like to see? Comment below. Happy Reading!
