Blogathon 2010 is Done!

I have finished this year’s blogathon at GraphiContent. 24 hours of posting every 30 minutes on Hellblazer to raise money for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (you can donate by clicking the link). It was lots of fun. A little bit too much so towards the end when all I wanted to do was sleep. As I have in the past, I’m keeping the window for donations open for the rest of the week, so please give a little bit. Doesn’t have to be much, $5 is great if you can spare it. Just let me know that you donated, because I do want to keep track (and to thank you). An easy archive page will be up later today after I wake up. Thanks for any and all support!


Since Hellblazer is the longest-running Vertigo comic ever, and it’s been around since the beginning, can’t you use Hellblazer to trace the development of the Vertigo imprint over time?

I mean, it’s literally a spin-off of an Alan Moore concept, and then the series has gone through phases just like Vertigo itself, shifting its emphasis from horror (Delano) to dark fantasy (Ennis) to crime (Azzarello) and back and forth. It’s also had some of the other key Vertigo creators work on it, from Gaiman to Morrison to Ellis to Aaron.

You should do a blogathon devoted to what Hellblazer tells us about Vertigo, the brand. And you should do that for 24 hours, from Monday to Tuesday. Just for fun.

Dude, you just did it. Don’t need me to.

And, I’m tired, Tim.

You’re tired? You have 10 more hours of blogging, you slacker!

Yeah, but I can’t be tired? Doesn’t mean I’m going to stop. Just means I’m tired.

You poor bastard.
By the time you’re finished the 24 hour blogathon, you’re gonna be so sick and tired of Hellblazer that if Hell’ll freeze over before you ever read another Hellblazer book.

Reminds me of the time when I read Busiek’s run on the Avengers (vol. 3) which also included JLA/Avengers and Avengers Forever in a week’s time.

but in 24 hours, not that crazy. I need me sleep. ;-)
