    Default 1000 books in 2019

    Let's continue the tradition of this thread for...wow, 5 years now!

    The goal, just like in the previous 4 years, is to read at least a 1000 comic book issues in 365 days, starting today!

    Keep us updated of your progress and if you fancy write a few lines about what you've read, what you liked and disliked, just to keep things interesting and informative (even if you just pick your favourite and least favourite of your batch).

    Usually a 22 pages comic counts as one issue, in case of other formats just divide it with 22. If you feel like your 48 pages long French album is really wordy and takes just as long to read as a 120pg american tpb then feel free to count it as 3 or even 5 issues, nobody gonna shout at you, it's all for fun.

    Feel free to adjust the volume of the challenge depending on your circumstances. If you think you can only manage to read 300 issues this year, you are still more then welcome to participate. Same if you think you will read way more than a 1000 issues.

    Happy reading folks!

    Glad that we are continuing this tradition, it's one of my favourite threads to visit. I am going for more conservative targets for 2019, given my rate in 2018 and the fact that I've just started a PhD. I will also not be buying much this year, which means that I will get to revisit some of my favourites, which is nice I also intend to keep a slightly more in depth record of my reading.

    After sad showings of 169 in 2017 and 127 in 2018, I am determined to hit 365 this year.

    On my reading list: Conan (1970's Marvel and recent Dark Horse); Wonder Woman (1980's George Perez); Buffy (Dark Horse season 8); Batman (No Man's Land & Hush; plus some Golden Age, Grant Morrison omni if I get to it).

    Hello. Long time lurker, second time poster. I took part in last year's challenge, from a distance as i wasn't a member. I didn't record the number of issues I read, though. My goal is to read at least 3 issues a day, a number that will easily meet the challenge.

    I've loved this club, even if I don't check in so often. I went from barely keeping up with new purchases in 2016 to keeping up with ALL of Marvel and DC in 2018! Looking forward to a new year of reading at least 2,019 comics, and maybe more than that.
    Do you read comics in TPBs, HCs, and omnibuses - or are just not sure where to start? Check out my definitive guides to DC (including Rebirth!), Valiant Comics, and Marvel - including every X-Men and Avengers team and each Marvel Event.

    You'll find definitive reading guides including every issue of every major Marvel hero and team, like Black Panther, Captain America, Captain/Ms. Marvel, Daredevil, Deadpool, Spider-Man, & and more!

    2018: ~700 and a couple of books.

    2019:
    January:
    Obscure cities #4 (The Road to Armilia) by Benoît Peeters and François Schuiten. A truly remarkable series, the fourth installment is more a picture book than a comic/gn. I enjoyed the first 3 parts more. So around 100 pages or 5 issues.

    Obscure cities #5 (Brüsel). I liked this one a lot. It's sorta satirical criticism on the urban planning of Brussels in the last 150 years. There are a few articles on the start to inform the reader so it's more understandable. It gets real weird toward the end, reminded me of some of Moebius' solo works. Around 130 pages, or 6 issues.

    Obscure cities #6 (The leaning girl). Read this once before a few years ago. The leaning girl was introduced as a short illustrated story in #4 of the series, and here is developed further into a gn. Parallel to it there's a photo-story and the two mix near the end. Again, an unusual and intriguing story with spectacular art. 165 pages or 8 issues.

    Pinocchio (Winshluss) - A loose adaptation of the classic we all know. weird piece of artsy comic, maybe a bit over-the-top. Mixed feels. ~185 pages, ~8 issues

    Obscure cities #7 (a man's shadow) - not as interesting as the others. ~90 pages, 4 issues

    Obscure cities #8 (invisible border) - nice one. 140 pages, 6 issues.

    Aquaman by Johns omnibus: (31 issues) My first Aquaman series and a great start to the year.
    Global Frequency Deluxe: (12 issues) Good comics, but I think my expectations were too high going into this. I kept waiting for the different one-issue stories to culminate in an amazing finale, much like Planetary. So I was disappointed when that didn't happen.
    Usago Yojimbo Saga 3: (22 issues) I'm now over half way through this series and the quality is so consistent. I'll be sad to get to the end.
    Deadly Class Deluxe 1-2: (31 issues) Absolutely amazing in parts, very good in others. Didn't take to the main character though.
    Usagi Yojimbo Saga 4: (22 issues)

    Total for month: issues
    Total for year: issues
