A Bold New Direction! maybe...

I have recently been mulling about the possibility of starting this blog back up, but as more of a history piece. I have been considering how one would go about learning all about the Marvel Universe. I realize there are any number of internet sites and books that could help provide an overview, but having more of a do-it yourself nature, I have considered starting at the beginning, with Fantastic Four # 1, and then moving forward. Basically, a blog post a book. Of course, this is a project that is destined to fail. Even if I covered a comic book a day, I would never catch up to the present, as more than seven super hero books are released by Marvel each week. But that doesn't mean I can't give it a shot! This may happen, or it may not. I'm wondering how quickly I'd lose interest in such a project. However, being as how becoming a comic book historian may in fact be the coolest (albeit dorkiest) job known to man, perhaps it's worth a shot. Plus, in the very least, I'll be able to read some of the very earliest stories of the Marvel univese. It would be interesting to see how much (or little) has changed since the Stan Lee Jack Kirby days of Marvel. We'll see...
