My name is Fabien (found me on twitter) and I’m a reader, mostly comics and non-fiction books. I used to read a lot more sci-fi and I sometimes still do, but in a less systematic manner. And I’m French. I read English without difficulty, but we don’t use the same part of the brain to read and write, so I’ll probably need some time to get used to write in english.
In the meantime, I’m starting this blog not in French, but in English because it’s mostly about reading american comics – and I will wrote about the editions I buy, the original ones, not the french ones.
But, let’s go back to the beginning. This Blog is about reading Guide. Last year, I was searching for some guidance in my exploration of Geoff Johns’ Green Lantern run. I mostly found poorly developped reading guide, like with the TPBs in order of publication. Not really useful here.
In another case, with the always expanding Hellboy Universe, It was hard to find one up to date. Frustrating, I know.
After a while and more disapointments in the area of reading order guides, I started to think that I could try to do it myself. It’s not the sexiest part of the comic books’ world, but it’s useful. I hope I’ll do some decent work.
I’ll probably talk about my readings too, because some of my favourite comics don’t required a map. And I’ll probably write some guide about book series and authors’ work, because It could be interesting to.
That’s all for now. This blog is now officially open for business. I’ll publish the first guide in a few day I think, stay tuned.
