One Shot Update

20110602-072051.jpg

Hello again, read/RANT fans! Cal here. I know updates have been few and far between around here, but now that I FINALLY have a) an internet connection (well… kind of) and b) the ability to purchase comics, I hope to start posting a little more regularly.

I’m still working on a way to revamp The Unread Canon, to move the focus away from ongoing story-arcs and towards a more coherent look at some ‘classic’ books, but for now, I hope you folks enjoyed my One Shot colums (from the number of readers I got on the Astro City and Animal Man issues, I’d imagine you did). I’m going to ease back in, and the first part of that will involve starting up my looks at standalone issues of comics, some great, some merely okay, once again.

This, hopefully, is what my schedule will look like for One Shot this year…

6/12/11 – The Unwritten #5, “How the Whale Became”
7/10/11 – All-Star Superman #10, “Neverending”
8/14/11 – X-Factor #13, “Re-X-Aminations”
9/11/11 – Ex Machina #40, “Ruthless”
10/09/11 – Tales of the Slayers, “Righteous”
11/13/11 – Daytripper #8, “47”

As ever, any suggestions for future issues are more than welcome, and hopefully I’ll get more writing coming up soon!

I apologize that life has pulled so many of us away from the site, particularly given how exciting things have gotten with DC’s recent announcement – more on that later.

Glad to be back!

  1. Woo hoo! I know how busy everybody’s been but I’ve missed the consistency beyond the requisite Synder review.

    Especially with the idiocy that was the end of Flashpoint #2.

  2. Flashpoint #2 was a very special kind of bad. I’ve seriously kicked around the idea of trying to do a series of columns called “Event Fatigue” that looks at the major plots, one at a time, of each Big Event stretching back to COIE… but man oh man would that be a whole lot of bad.

    Anyway, thanks – hopefully I’ll be able to keep a regular schedule! I love this blog.
