2015 8th Annual Graphic Novel/Manga Challenge

Another one--why have I gotten so addicted? But here is one I've never tried.  I'd like to read more graphic novels, so I'll give this one a go, at the first level. Sign up here:

The 8th Year of this Challenge starts in 2015!!  This will be my 4th year as host and I am thrilled to be here!

It's time to start signing up for the 2015 challenge now.  No changes 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 plays out:

runs from Jan.1 - Dec. 31, 2015

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.
