Reading Crisis: Prologue
Well, it's true. But I am about to change that.
Over on the Two True Freaks! message board, there has been a lot of COIE talk over the last few months. I made it known that I had never read the series, and asked if that hurt my credibility (yeah right). My pal over in the UK Andrew Leyland (he of the awesome podcast Hey, Kids! Comics, which if you are not listening to YOU NEED TO BE LISTENING TO) got wind of this and, in a move of excellence the likes of which has rarely been duplicated, gave me his copy of the COIE trade paperback!
Now I am going to document my first reading of this epic storyline. I am going in with only the vaguest of notions of the story, the broad strokes which every comics reader knows. The details will all be new to me. And I hope you will enjoy my take on this seminal work as I read it for the first time.
Next: The Summoning!
