blah blah blah this is all the same:

i burned through all ten published volumes of this series in a matter of months, and while i managed a fairly coherent review of the first volume, i am overwhelmed by the thought of going back and reviewing volumes 2-10, trying to recapture that innocent mindset that didn’t know what happened in subsequent volumes and trying to stay within the lines of the volume i’d be reviewing.

my hat is off to you serial comic book/graphic novel reviewers who are able to consistently churn out smart, comprehensive, and entertaining reviews that manage to discuss the book itself as well as its place within the larger universe of the series or character’s existence.

i can’t do that. i read these so compulsively and so quicklylike jamming cookies into a mouth that was already crammed with cookies – that it’s just too much road to backtrack and too many metaphors to mix and since i have so many other books that i have to review, i’m going to take a totally cheap opt-out review path and just post pictures from each book that i enjoy for reasons pertaining to the plot, or just cuz i like the damn pictures.

and maybe now that i have to wait a couple of months until volume 11 comes out, i’ll be able to do that one proper review-style, but right nowtoo full of stress and anxiety and just wanting to make this stack of books needing reviews go down LGM.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
