Panel Patter Returns

I'm back! Did you miss me? :)

I'm happy to report that some transitional issues that took more of my time than I expected are over, and that I'm back to working on reviews again here on Panel Patter (and the sister blog for book-books, The Book Stew). I somehow thought I could keep up a regular schedule while moving and changing jobs, which was a bit silly of me looking back. I really don't know what I was thinking at the time.

Anyway, I'm more or less settled in and ready to get back into the swing of things. I've really missed sharing my thoughts on the wide variety of things that I read in a given week, even if my schedule wasn't giving me a lot of time to read, let alone review anything.

The only change I'm planning to make to accommodate the fact that I'm going to be working and going to school for the first time in--well, let's just leave it at "a while"--is that I'm going to shorten my reviews up a bit, depending on the book in question. I'm also more likely to group multi-volume titles together, as I feel I was often repeating myself and not adding a lot to the discussion of the work. The same is likely to be true when I'm reviewing mini-comics by either the same author or of the same type.

I have some other plans in the works, but let's save those for a later day. First things first--let's get some reviews going again. See you in the comments!
