February Mr Linky, Mini-Challenge and Review Index

At the bottom of this post, you'll find the Mr Linky for your February graphic novels reviews. Because we're using the free version of Mr Linky, this means that the one for January will disappear. We considered upgrading to a paid account, but Mr Linky is a service we've had enough problems with in the past that we'd rather wait for something better to come along.

Anyway - the solution we came up with was to edit the Mr Linky post at the end of the month and add permanent links to everyone's reviews. But then, inspired by Teresa's Diversify Your Reading project, we had a more ambitious idea. Why not create a permanent alphabetic index of graphic novels reviews, one that anyone, challenge participant or not, could contribute to? We thought this could be a useful resource to anyone considering giving the medium a try but not knowing where to turn. Sadly our previous idea of coming up with a list of recommendations for newcomers wasn't as well-received as we hoped, but we have confidence that this one will be.

If you click here, you'll see that the January Mr Linky was edited into a review index. If you have any reviews to add to the index, no matter how old, just leave us a comment and we'll happily add your links. We would very much appreciate your contribution, so feel free to leave as many links as you want, and also to spread the word.

Last but not least, I wanted to announce the February Mini-Challenge, which is being hosted by my co-host Chris. The goal is to read graphic novels about or featuring animals - please visit Chris' blog for all the details!

Happy graphic novel reading in February!
