I’m going to join the 12th Annual Graphic Novel & Manga reading challenge for this year, too, with the same goal of Bronze Age, 24 reviews. The challenge has moved to a Facebook page.

Write a sign-up post on your blog, goodreads, facebook, etc and link to it here.

What counts: graphic novels, collected trade editions, manga, comic strip collections, comic books or combinations of text and bubbles all in the same book. In print or digital. Anything else you feel is suitable.

My personal criteria are if it has either frames OR speech bubbles it counts. I also feel many picture books and zines fall under this criteria as well. I’m not going to be the comic police but if you are unsure, just ask.

You must write a review and link to it for it to count towards the challenge. Reviews may be posted on your blog or goodreads or similar places. Several reviews may be gathered and posted in one link on your blog, but each book must be reviewed individually and linked here to count. Do not post your actual review here on the group.

Here is how the Challenge plays out:
runs from Jan.1 – Dec. 31, 2019

Modern Age: read and review 12 books during the year (that’s only 1 book a month)
Bronze Age: read and review 24 books during the year (Can you handle 2 books a month.)
Silver Age: read and review 52 books during the year (Are you up to a book a week!)
Golden Age: read and review 104 books during the year (Are you addicted? 2 books a week!)
Diamond Age: read and review 208 books during the year (This one’s for you John LOL. 4 books a week!)

I’m thinking of sorting through my Wonder Woman single issues and reading them. I’ve also read a few manga collections but haven’t reviewed them. Of course, they’re published here in Finland and I’ve no idea if they’re available in English.

For a few more days, Marvel Unlimited yearly subscripion has a discount so I’m thinking of getting it again.
