Monday Musings 11/14/12

Welcome one and all to Monday Musings!

Monday Musings serves multiple purposes:

1. I’ll update everyone to changes in relation to the blog including new features, modified formats to existing ones, and anything else blog-related.
2. I’ll reveal what issues I’ll be reviewing in each part of Bullet Points.
3. I’ll reveal my Top 3 Comics of the Week though I won’t tell you which one finishes first, second, third until the actual article comes out (got to give you all a reason to check it out)

Blog Updates

Well the big news was already announced at https://thegothamrogue.wordpress.com/2012/11/18/blog-update-daily-vownew-features/. So without further ado, here is the updated schedule:

Friday: The Rankings – I’ll rank my favourite comic series from each company in different categories.
Saturday: Coming Attractions – I’ll highlight the coming Wednesday’s new comics that I’m most looking forward to.
Sunday: Covers of the Week – I’ll list my top three favourite covers from the week that was.
Monday: Monday Musings – I’ll discuss changes to the blog, post information regarding Bullet Point articles, and reveal my Top 3 Comics without actually revealing their exact order until the actual article comes out
Tuesday: Character Spotlight –I’ll 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.
Wednesday: Retroactive – I’ll take you 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.
Thursday: #Trending – I’ll highlight and offer my opinions on any comic-related news that occurred during the week. This will included news about comic books, 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.

Also I mentioned last week that I’d tell you more about “The Monthly Wrap-Up” but you’ll have to wait one more week. Stay tuned…

  1. Last year I found a T – shirt shop near the town I live. You give them a thumb drive containing the image you want to print on your T – shirt, and they will make it in 2 days for 20 euros. Pretty expensive, I know, but they do an awesome job.
    Now I would like them to make 2 T – shirts for me, one with the Beverly Hills 90210 logo and one with an image of Grifter (this one: http://www.google.it/imgres?q=grifter+one+shot&hl=it&tbo=d&biw=1280&bih=709&tbm=isch&tbnid=1n4bF1J5jhMQAM:&imgrefurl=http://connect.collectorz.com/comics/database/grifter-one-shot/1-50307&docid=fHKVaCXSJ6bqbM&imgurl=http://clzimages.com/comic/large/0c/0c_50307_1_GrifterOneShot1.jpg&w=420&h=632&ei=EqzpUKuSL4jmtQbOgYHQAg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=137&vpy=95&dur=1054&hovh=276&hovw=183&tx=115&ty=126&sig=104118073267380259745&page=1&tbnh=157&tbnw=101&start=0&ndsp=32&ved=1t:429,r:1,s:0,i:88).
    The problem is, both Beverly Hills 90210 and Grifter belong to the past: going around with an out – of – date T – shirt would make me feel odd, like the guys who go around with a hat that seems to come from the XIX century. I normally don’t care very much about the reactions of people surrounding me, but in this case I would feel ridiculous indipendently from their reactions.
    Also, it wouldn’t make much sense to let that shop make a brand – new T – shirt that would seem to be just the opposite, that is to say a museum piece.
    I’ll think about it, but I probably won’t do it. Do you have any comic book themed T – shirt?
