First Title You Were Hooked On

Completely unsurprisingly, Birds of Prey! I had been reading it in trades, then eventually it got to the point where I needed to know what was happening next as soon as I possibly could. BoP 98 was the first comic I ever bought new. Before that I had a bunch of various nearly a longbox of back-issues, but when I started buying new comics I had to admit to myself that I was hooked and that I was probably in this for the long haul. That book came out in early September 2006. By the end of the month I was working part-time at my LCS; I worked there until about a month ago. Most of the money just went back to the store to feed my comics habit.

(I will note that BoP was not, actually, the first comic I fell in love with. It was just the first that I fell in love with that was still ongoing.)

Day Six: Favourite Title

I was debating between Birds of Prey, Secret Six, and Gotham Central, but having read this week's BoP...

THIS BOOK IS DEFINITELY MY FAVOURITE WHO AM I KIDDING.

I am too blown-away by this issue to be really coherent about it, especially without spoilers, so uh... I talked about the Birds (among others) a few days ago under "Favourite Team", and also I will link (again) to my ridiculous BoP picspam from when the new series was announced back in January: Here, not even remotely close to dial-up safe.

I totally forgot to do a June Books Post! Fuck it, I will do a combined June/July or just give up on this project altogether.

BUT I have a new thing to forget to post! You know those "30 Days Of [Insert Topic Here]" memes that seem to be eating the internet? I have found a DC one! Expect ridiculous indecisiveness, because we all know I cannot pick just one favourite of anything.

Day One: Favourite Character

God, this depends on day of the week.
