The Collective Reading of Old (Complete)
Good Classic Comics
Hi and welcome to the thread for the collective reading of good old comics. Would you like to read a good already complete comic? Would you like to exchange impressions with others about what you read? Then this is the thread to find people with whom to read that old good classic comic you want to read.
If you know about a good classic comic that is not in this list, you also can suggest other old classic and good comics to add to this list. After a short research on its popularity and reception it will be included.
- How to find people with whom to read an old good comic?
All you have to do is to copy the list of suggested comics, write in front of each comic "Yes" if you are interested in reading it, or "No", if you aren't, and post your list of preferences in this thread. To facilitate it, you can copy this simpler list to wrote your preferences:
Or simpler, you can post the those comics from the list you would like to read. Once you have posted your preferences, the first post of this thread will be updated including your preferences in the interested readers lists.
- When to start a collective reading and where to exchange comments about the comic?
You can start a collective reading when the members interested in reading the respective comic are enough to give it a try. The more members are interested, the much rewarding will be the collective reading. Two persons to begin a collective reading could be not a good idea, but 5 or more can be worth a try. It will depend also in how much the people are engaged in reading the comic.
Once you are enough people to begin, any of the persons interested can PM all the others and you can create a thread in the otaku finder section for the collective reading of the respective comic.
- Rules for the collective reading
Wet advice the readers agree on the rules they are going to follow in the collective reading. You can use an schelude, or not (using in this case the spoiler tag rule). Or you can choice some different rules than these two.
Here we explain those rules
Rule: The schedule
The first one will be a schedule for the comments (not for the reading). In each case, the schedule will be discussed and agreed between the readers. The goal of this rule is to group the individual readings in a common pace as much as possible.
Rule: The spoiler tag rule
It's clear that in some weeks you could have the wish to read faster or slower than the chosen pace for the collective reading in the schedule. For instance you may want to go faster and to post comments about ulterior pages, chapters or volumes to those assigned for a certain week in the schedule. We don't want you to restrain of it. Go ahead!
To make that possible, you may adopt this rule:
... like either of these examples:
With this rule, you will get two different things: (i) your reading will be protected from spoilers you don't want to read about chapters you haven't read yet, and it will allow you to comment whenever you want to do it. (ii) you will be able to post comments about pages, chapters or volumes others than those assigned for that week in which the comment is posted.
