Mervi's list

Hi! I'm Mervi and I'm a comic book addict. I've read comics from my teens so over a decade now. However, I've written reviews about them only rarely. Somehow, I feel it's quite a bit harder than writing reviews about books. I've also had a blog only a couple of years and I didn't write much reviews before I started the blog.

Anyway, I’m going for the doctoral, although I know only the first few trades I’m going to read.

My edited list:

1. Morrison and Quitely: All-Star Superman vol. 1
2. JLA: Gods and Monsters
3. JLA: the Nail
4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer vol. 1: The Long Way Home
5. JLA: Earth 2
6. Buffy the Vampire Slayer vol. 2: No Future For You
Yay, Minor!

7. JLA: American Dreams (Finnish edition)
8. JLA: Rock of Ages
9. JLA: Strength in Numbers
10. JLA: Justice for All
11. JLA/Avengers
12. JLA: World War III

Yay, Major!

13. JLA: Tower of Babel
14. JLA: Divided We Fall
15. Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne, vol. 1
16. Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne, vol. 3
17. Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne, vol. 2
18. Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne: vol. 4

Yay, Masters!

19. Buffy the Vampire Slayer vol. 3: Wolves at the Gate
20. Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne: vol. 5
21. Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne: vol. 6
22. Hellboy: Seed of Desctuction
23. Hellboy: Wake the Devil
24.

I also have some vague notions of rereading Elfquest or Sandman. Alas, I’m such of fan of these series that I don’t know if I can do coherent reviews of them. I might also or instead reread Avengers and JLA trades.


I'm from Finland and so I tend to read Finnish translations if they are available.

Like I said before, I love reading people's lists. I'm still amazed at how different our lists are.

I agree its a little more difficult to review a graphic novel or comic from a book. I look forward to your reviews (=

Thanks, Mishel!

I agree with you Beth, that there are a lot of different reading lists here.
