Time For A Change?

Haven't been around for a while fr a couple of reasons but mostly (for the last month or so) it's been due to getting promoted in work and just not having the time to write those wonderful, in depth posts you've all come to know and love.

Though it may not seem like it, this blog took up a fair amount of my time. The weekly Cocktail posts alone often took a couple of hours to prepare - scanning the covers of the books, combining them into one picture, typing out the heading and quote, posting that along with my reviews of the comics themselves. Sometimes I could get them done on a Friday afternoon, sometimes I was frantically writing them on the Sunday morning just to meet my self-imposed publishing deadline of 1pm on a Sunday.

I know - it's hard life, isn't it?

Self deprecating sarcasm aside, it's been bugging me that I've let this blog sit without an update for a few weeks. So, in an attempt to aim for brevity, I'm heading off to experiment with Twitter. You can find me over at @CrisisOEP though, at the time of writing, there's nothing there except the bare bones of an account. Hopefully over the next week or two I'll find out whether that's for me or not - if not, I might end up back here anyway!

So, for now at least, this'll be the last post here at the blog. If you tweet and want to come see me, feel free to follow me and I'll return the favour.

One way or another, see you soon folks!

Change Ahead?

Haven't had time to go through Previews this month in any great depth - my fault for getting promoted in work and being damn busy, eh? - but I decided to live up to my pledge at the start of the year and step away from DC's new offerings.

I'll probably get Futures End but will probably pass over Secret Origins - new versions of origins of versions of characters I'm not interested in? No thanks.

I'll pick up Justice League United because I like Jeff Lemire's writing but I think the new Sinestro series will end up being one I'll look to get in the trades; I like Cullen Bunn's writing on The Sixth Gun which I've picked up in the collections, but don't feel the urge to get the ongoing.

I will, however, be ordering three new series from Image:

C.O.W.L. simply because the premise of a superhero union intrigues me.

Nailbiter by Joshua Williamson whose work I liked on the (in my opinion) cancelled too soon Voodoo.

Trees because while Warren Ellis's superhero stories aren't that good, Transmetropolitan remains one of my favourite comics ever so I'm willing to give this a go.
