7th Annual Graphic Novel & Manga Challenge

Reading Comics
Nicola Mansfield, once again, hosts the Annual Graphic Novel & Manga Challenge. This is its 7th edition
and for the the second time RGN will participate.

What is this Challenge business. Its not a competition if you're asking, its more of a group objective thing. Each blogger proposes his level of reviews, and over the year tries to achieve that number. Its a fun way to keep you reviews going.

From the Challenge Page:
What counts:  graphic novels, collected trade editions, manga, comic strip collections, comic books. In print or digital. Anything else you feel is suitable.  My criteria is if it has either frames OR speech bubbles it counts.  I'm not going to be the comic police but if you are unsure, ask me in the comments any given month. 
Here is how the Challenge will play out this year: 
runs from Jan.1 - Dec. 31, 2014 
Modern Age: read and review 12 books during the year (that's only 1 book a month)
Bronze Age: read and review 24 books during the year (Can you handle 2 books a month.)
Silver Age: read and review 52 books during the year (Are you up to a book a week!)

I'm going for Bronze Age. Its the average I'm able at the moment.
