Helping each other out with G-Mo's Batman (prelude)

Posted by Silkcuts (5272 posts) - - Show Bio

I was talking to a lot of people since my latest Batman review - Batman: The Return.  Some people asked if I was going to review Batman Inc, which I really debated.  For now I've held off.  The Digging Deeper into Bruce Wayne's Past blog got decent response.  So that got me thinking, should we as a community create a Morrison Support group?  I was talking to SUPER-MAN 23 and he commented about "Silkcuts Incorporated", which I thought was cleaver and funny.  I am glad we can joke, but seriously, would a support group be the better direction about talking about Morrison's books? Sounds better then a review an issue or so just pointing out stuff, right? If its a good idea, what would we call this support group and who would join?
 
I have already listed a lot of the cryptic messages over the last few batman related reviews, I would list more, but I can't do all the detective work, I am sure I miss stuff as well. Who is with me?   

To making a better reader out of all of us.
Cheers

  Sounds like a lot of analytical work, and I have little time to do such things because AP Literature is taking over my life right now.  For a name, how about "Morrison for the Analytical Reader".

@Raul_The_Man: @SUPER-MAN 23: @Amegashita: @J1ml33: @FadeToBlackBolt: 
I've been thinking....
There should be one main thread that works like the chapter guide, then other forums to key things like one thread for Batman and Son another for R.I.P. , etc
There would also be an "Evolving Idea" thread where we can discuss current events and also threads like "others things" which would have the pop culture, occult, magic, other comic influence, etc.
 
Do you guys like that Lay-out?
  • chapter page
  1. History: Year One, Son of the Demon, etc.
  2. Batman and Son
  3. Black Glove
etc?

@FadeToBlackBolt: @J1ml33: @SUPER-MAN 23: @Amegashita: 
Does any of you guys want the responsibility of maintaining the threads? OR should I just do it?

@Silkcuts: I'm happy to help in any way that I can. Gives me something to do while I'm buzzing around on here.

I'm learning how this site is set up and how it functions so I don't think that maintaining anything would be a good idea. I mean I have replied to some posts by Silkcuts but they have actually been private messeges instead of the thread posts I thougth I was doing. So don't freak out silkcuts, I'm not stalking.

@Raul_The_Man:  No worries man, I understand.
BTW, I set up an ask Blog were you can drop a question anytime, or if that is too complicated you can always write on my wall or PM if you have any questions.
