-->> ..this isn't a question of ' HOW YOU MANAGE TO READ ALL THOSE BOOKS' ..

but a question on suggestion, perhaps maybe even a tip on time-management.

Overload comes with my territory .. and there are very few things i actually get to ' read' .. it becomes a challenge just to read the TMNT books, Usagi , & odd n' end indy books i pick up .. ..let alone try to keep up with all the work i am trying / needed to accomplish and all of life's continual chaos and all this interWEBulous b.s.

I don't know how you manage to enjoy so many titles.

How do you manage them ?!

I usually manage to get through a few on the train home. If I go in with my brother, I'll get a couple read on the drive back. Some books I wait until I have the whole story and just plow through it in a sitting, most I'll just read the night I get them and then once again before the next issue as a refresher. Some I'll get and won't get around to reading for one reason or another until much later though. They're comics mang. Comics are my life! :)

-->> .. mine too,man ..

but it's hard for me to set a pattern, routine, or a regular time to read or catch up.

That's what is like say .. pretty much happened with the Star Wars books.

Again .. damm good stories and art direction. But once i started to get overwhelmed ( then later burnt out ).. i was just ' Buying ' the books and setting them aside never to actually get to reading them.

That even happened to some of the TMNT books.. which gas taken me over a year to get back and GO back and read, re-read , and even fill some gaps in what i was missing .. even sh8t that came out in like the past 3 - 4 years.

It's been tough.

Now my career takes near all my attention .. and like comics, movies, games ..whatever.. .. i can barely ever enjoy anything in one sitting as i'm so scattered in my work and multitasking.

Sometimes i even forget what i purchased.. sometimes i'll have backups of three or four issues of the same book apparently i bought over the coarse of some time, only to read it much later.

These extras do become ones i can give away. It's not all bad.

I specific now recall how i had to force myself to read yours and Paul's # 50 .. i think part in transit, and part on break time when i got to the office for work.

I like how you read them in transit , that actually helps me for some reason focus a tiny bit better on the story.

Reading is always a challenge as your mind wanders from your eyes .. and then you have to go back and re-read over and over. Novels become next to impossible to finish because of this. Comics can become a little easier, but depends on the topic and and the layout of the book.

Being and Indy comic guy ..even just outside of Usagi and Turtles.. you can kind of run the gamut of ' NO HOLDS BARRED' titles.

Ones where the flow can go all over the map .. and some just downright amaze or loose me.


Right now.. forever am i catching up yo Usagi. TMTNs is staple.

Catching up on older Vaughn Bode , and 1970s Spider-man books related to the Tokatsu TV show..

and fresh to me ..

is the 1970s run ' Shogun Warriors' .

.. some real gems that i never before.. while loosing Star Wars is sad.. in that void there are some real beauties while i may have been aware .. am now just actually reading ( or tryin' to ).

Never easy ..

[[ o yeh ::

all f7ckin' haters of everything TOKKA ..

and i know there are a good handful of you that'd just love to see me fail..

you hate me now..

your deffly gonna hate my sequential work.

and yeh i am fighting all i can to make it so .. before my mom dies .. or before i'm dead ..

so good luck to you on your tirades at spite for me .

I will do all i can to get this shit out there and see my work published no matter how much of a threat you think i pose.

Even if i go down in flames.
