The Six Stages of (not) Writing Comics Reviews

In case you’re wondering where my reviews of Flash #2 and Flash #3 are, this may shed some light…

  1. Wednesday: It’s new comic day! I can’t wait to read this week’s comics! I’ll just have to make sure I finish my review tonight or tomorrow so it’s among the first batch people see.
  2. Saturday: There are still some people who buy comics on the weekend, right? So a review is still timely.
  3. Tuesday: Crap, new comics will be out tomorrow! I’d better make sure I post that review tonight!
  4. Next Wednesday: Well, everyone’s going to be reading reviews of this week’s comics. So I guess I’ve got three weeks to review this one before the next one’s out.
  5. Three Tuesdays Later: Crap, the new issue is out tomorrow and I still haven’t reviewed this one! I’d better get cracking!
  6. Wednesday: Eh, forget it. No one wants to read a review of last month’s issue. But hey, it’s new comic day! I can’t wait to read this week’s comics! I’ll just have to make sure I finish my review tonight or tomorrow so it’s among the first batch people see….

Lather, rinse, repeat.

    I enjoy reading Greg’s reviews and analysis and those issues are a little older 🙂 Keep up the great work! Just post when you are ready and we will read away.

    I’m interested.

    Even if some of the stuff makes me grit my teeth, this has become my sole Flash book news site. God help me, I still want to know what’s going on if only thru Previews and a trusted review.
