- Lumberjanes: Mixing It Up (skipped)- I don’t like Lumberjanes
- Giant Days: [Untitled]- feels like people who like Lumberjanes would like this. ugh.
- The Backstagers: [Untitled]- too short
- Goldie Vance- have to question if missing info or lack of whatever makes story not good vs it is just not for me. I read this before and I am sure it is missing stuff.
Pro It is interesting and feels unique-ish.
I felt at a distance from it when I read it. It probably felt separated because I went to a funeral so yeah. Also, I finished a novel and i’m feeling eh about reading honestly. I probably need to take a break for a bit.
I do not know what is going on with me and Silk, for some reason I’m not into it into it. I hope as I read further I can get into it.
This one was super underwhelming/overall underwhelming comic reading week. This was what I was trying to avoid when I first started this. I am supposed to be reconnecting with the good comics.
In my last post I did a whole discussion about fiction taking up space and then I spent most of this week reading a novel. When I read the novel I pretty much put everything else (novels included) to the side to read it. The only time I got back into the comics was when I took a break from the novel.
How am I going to rectify this comic problem?
- read better comics (top answer I think)
- push harder (if every facet of social media is about comics and my pickiness makes me not like novels as makes me work harder to find good novels then I need to push harder with comics too.)
Missing Books On Goodreads
I realized that I did not even mark comics I read from last week as read. A lot of the comics I read this week I could not mark as read because they are not on the site database. It made me think about all the comics I have read in the past that are left unmarked because I am too lazy or forgot to add them. So I may have read more comics this year but they are not shown on the site.
