7th Annual Graphic Novel & Manga Challenge 2014 SIGN-UPS

We have a button!  Thanks to all who submitted buttons!  I appreciate every offer!!  This wasn't a contest and I didn't pick the *best* in any way.  I've chosen the one that strikes my fancy and is completely different from last years.  You may add these to your blogs and link them back to this blog.

Button made by Heather from Capricious Reader.  
Thank you!

The 7th Year of this Challenge starts in 2014!!

It's time to start signing up for the 2014 challenge now.  Trying to keep things simple this year.  Only change is we will have 3 levels of play this year.  Please write a sign-up post on your blog and then sign-up below with a link to your specific sign-up post (NOT to your home 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!)

You must sign up for a level, but once you complete that level you may move up and try for the next one.

Please spread the word everyone!
