You know what they say... It's 5:00pm EST Monday, January 23rd, somewhere?
Just try and tell me there's a better image for this slide out there, I dare you.
Batman drags Mr. Freeze, kicking and screaming, to some 1 on 1 creepy times.

Gotham Spoilers and Rebirth
So let's talk about Rebirth and my coverage of it... or lack there of. Okay, that's a little extreme, but that said, the short end of it is: running this site is hardly is any fun for me anymore.
I started this site when I didn't have anything to do, but however many years later, my Wednesdays now consist of me coming home and having to plough through any comic I have to cover for the site, figure out something to say about them, and write it up ASAP so I can have time to myself to eat, watch tv, play a game, whatever. It's an awful way to read comics.
With Rebirth around the corner and double shipping being the name of the game, I can already see the fatigue setting in, so I'm looking for ways to continue maintaining this site but scaling back so it doesn't feel as much like a rewardless job. My number one idea to cut back is to basically handle weekly posts on Wednesday a lot like I do Stack Rundown, where I just write about my thoughts (not caring about spoilers, obviously) instead of trying to write down a detailed description of what happens. But for the sake of organization, that might be a little messy, so I could just stick to individual posts, but with less detail. We'll see how it works.
Overall, I still want to continue running Gotham Spoilers, but the fact is, I'm just tired. Feeling pressured to read books sucks. This feels like a job, not a hobby, and I already have a job... one that I'm paid to do. So the coming months might be a little weird in terms of the site. Just giving a heads up. If I decide to do anything major, I'll clearly post about it here.
