I’ve talked a lot about the books that I finish reading in the month. But I never actually talk about the books I don’t. I’ve said in YouTube videos that I’m a huge user of my public library. Every month I check out dozens of new(ish) graphic novels and comic books to peruse. I’ll usually take them home (or bring them to work), read a chapter or two, and then if they don’t grab me, put them down.
I pick up too many books to read them all. But, I still want the opportunity to look at as many books (especially the art) as I possibly can. I love sequential art! Did I tell you that?!
I find that the few chapters I read are usually enough to inform me on the series. I don’t feel like I’ve wasted my time, and I get to do the thing that I love most… look at as much art as is humanly possible. The only real problem (and I have yet to solve it) is that books weigh so much. I hate the hassle of carrying them to-and-fro!
Anyways, here’re some of the titles I picked up this month that I didn’t read until the end, and WHY I chose not to.
