What is a trade paperback lover to do? On one hand, I was determined to wait for four pretty 52 trade paperbacks to put on my shelves; on the other hand, I hated missing out on the weekly reading community that 52 generated in the blogosphere.
There are some great 52 blogs out there, and I encourage you to visit, among others, Mark Fossen's 52 on 52 and Douglas Wolk's 52 Pickup.
But for your wait-for-traders who'd like to read the 52 trade paperbacks along with Collected Editions, we're celebrating the four-volume, thirteen issue release of 52 with our own weekly series (with thanks to Focused Totality), 13 on 52!
Every Wednesday starting tomorrow, Collected Editions will offer thirteen words on "this week's" edition of 52 (no easy task!). We encourage you to play along and submit your own thirteen-word reviews. (Prizes involved for great entries? We'll see.) At the end of each thirteen-week period, Collected Editions will post a review of each 52 trade as a whole.
Thirteen on 52 ... just because you waited for the trade doesn't mean you can't join in on the fun! See you tomorrow!
