Our pal Seth Hahne, of GoodOKBad fame, came up with this 31 Days of Comics challenge, one of those things where each day of the month you're given a different category that you then make a choice of a comic to fill that category. We did it last year and I figured it would be a fun bit to do again, so here we are! Click here to see each of the categories so far!
We continue with Day 14, which is a Comic That You Love That You'll Never Read Again
Read on for my pick and then you can share yours!
As I explained last year, this is more difficult for me than most, as I end up reading books for reasons tying into the blog. Heck, for instance, I'm doing a bit right now where comic creators that I like recommend a comic book and I spotlight it. So what if a creator picks a book I wasn't planning on re-reading? I'll have to re-read it. So it is difficult for me to pick out something that I actively enjoyed that I don't think I'll come across again in the future.
Last year I went with David Small's dark memoir, Stitches. I have not re-read it since I picked it last year, so that's something, I guess! Although, oddly enough, talking about it again now sort of makes me want to read it again.
Hmmmmmmm.....let's go with Jonathan Hennessey and Aaron McConnell's excellent "The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation." It's a really good examination of the history of the writing of the Gettysburg Address. It's well-drawn, well-researched and well-written. However, I guess it is SO thorough that I don't see myself needing to re-visit it any time soon.
And of course, as I write this, I wonder, "Hmmm...maybe I should re-read that." ;)
