Tomorrow is the day of a 24-hour readathon hosted by Elliot Books and That Bookie. You can view their videos here and here. I decided to participate in this without even watching the video. If you don’t know what it is, it’s a readathon where you read graphic novels, comics, or manga the entire day. There are no challenges other than that.
I have 3 comics, which are a part of the DC Rebirth story arc, and 1 manga planned out to read during this readathon. Then I have 3 that I will read if I have the time to. Unfortunantely I have to work tomorrow night so I will have to sleep at some point and I will also lose out on a couple hours while working. But that’s okay. I have faith that I will at least get through the first 4.
So, let’s start out with the manga that I want to read. I have already started this but I haven’t had the motivation to continue on with it. That manga is the manga classic, Emma. I received this manga from NetGalley and Udon Entertainment for my honest review and opinion. I have never read the original Emma so I won’t be able to compare the two. I am looking forward to finishing off this manga, though.
The first two comics I want to read are part of the same story and world. Those are the first two volumes of Harley Quinn. I received the second volume from NetGalley and DC, so I had to purchase the first volume from Amazon. It didn’t have too many reviews and didn’t seem to have too good of reviews on there. I still look forward to getting around to reading them, though.
After I finish those, I want to get to another ARC I received also from NetGalley and DC, Justice League vs Suicide Squad Volume 1. I have not read any other comics from either of these worlds but I still look forward to reading this comic.
Both Harley Quinn and Justice League vs Suicide Squad will release June 27th.
If I can, I would like to read some Marvel comics. My husband owns Death of Captain America Volumes 1-3. I haven’t read any Captain America comics but I have seen one of the Captain America movies and one of the Avengers movies. So, I’m obviously (sarcasm) an expert.
I really hope that you enjoyed this! Are you going to participate in the Comic Readathon? Use the hashtag #comicbooksunday to stay a part of the conversation!
Have you read any of the comics and what were your thoughts?
