Blogathon 2010

As I've done twice before in 2007 and 2009, this year, I'm doing another blogathon for charity. For those who don't know (or remember), a blogathon is where you post on your blog every 30 minutes for 24 hours straight. It's a geeky, fun sort of way to raise a little bit of money for charity. Like last year, the charity I'll be blogging for is the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, an organisation dedicated to free speech, particularly when it comes to comics. The blogathon will be happening on Saturday July 17 beginning at 9 am over at GraphiContent. If you'd like to sponsor me, just head on over to the CBLDF's website and give whatever you'd like -- and tell me about it so I can keep track of all of the donations either via comment or via e-mail (my address is chevett13 [at] yahoo [dot] ca). If you can give, that's great, but it's okay if you can't.

For this year's blogathon, I will be writing about Hellblazer, a comic that I love and own more of than any other series. I've compiled a list of all of the trades/issue/graphic novels I will be reading and discussing (and the rough order I'll do them in, but that may change). I'll stick that below a cut just to save space at the end of the post.

Again, the blogathon will be at GraphiContent on Saturday July 17 beginning 9 am and you can sponsor me by donating to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. It should be fun and thank you in advance for any support you give.
