Charlie Talks Comics

Charlie Talks Comics

I simply can’t explain it. After a writing drought (with a few intermittent articles here on the Charlie Tonic site) over the last few months, I felt like my pen to digital paper muscles were getting a bit thin. I can’t say what happened but on February 4th everything suddenly changed. On that day, without much planning I sat down and decided to review a few comics for Comic Related. It had, quite literally, been a years since I’d written anything significant for the site I started back in 2004.

Since the 4th, I have posted 11 articles in 22 days and the more I write, the more I want to write about comics. It’s reinvigorated not just sharing my thoughts but my love for the site and my own deep drive to see it succeed. Over the course of those 11 articles, I’ve now reviewed 50 comics.

The concept for the article was very basic and I called it Rapid Fire Reviews. Recently, I caught up on all the titles I read from the two mainstream publishers Marvel Comics and DC Comics. Once that happened, each time I finished a comic I sat down and organized my thoughts in a series of notes. Those notes evolved into full reviews and a column took shape.

This evening, here at Charlie Tonic, I thought it would be fun to share links to those eleven columns inviting any of you comic lovers out there to give them a read and share your thoughts. Let the review of the reviews begin…
