First and foremost: how great is Graeme’s takedown of MPH? Reading that the other day was like having a triple shot of espresso.
As for me, I keep wanting to write capsule reviews—if I do ‘em right, they’re lively, fast-moving, and funny, plus it’s a little bit easier to ignore my shortcomings (“Oh, the art? Huh, yeah, I guess the art is okay”) —and I think I finally found my hook. What if I reviewed the books from Comixology’s recent Summer Reading List giveaway? Maybe broken out over two or three entries?
That might be okay, right? If I don’t give myself too much rope and end up writing eleven million words, thereby defeating the purpose, right?
Anyway, after the jump: Days 1-6!
