I guess I can't put this off any longer. Due to a series of events in my personal and professional life, I have no choice but to table TOT for several days.
I'm currently planning to resume on October 11.
During this hiatus, I would be most interested in hearing from readers about what they want to see in these columns, as well as their suggestions on attractiving advertisers and new readers.
Don't get me wrong; TOT has *lots* of readers. So many readers that it's truly depressing how few of them ever make donations to the site or talk about the columns in their blogs and such. Where's the love, baby?
TOT's return doesn't depend on these donations or plugs. I remain convinced we're providing valuable entertainment and education here. I'm just saying, y'know?
And yeah, as Tony mentions above, show us a little love by making a donation with the PayPal link below or offering suggestions on finding advertisers (woo, look at these attractive ad campaigns we have!). Don't make me start accepting pop-up ads!
ZERO: Burn your money before buying any comic receiving this rating. It doesn't *necessarily* mean there's absolutely nothing of value here - though it *could* - but whatever value it might possess shrinks into insignificance before its overall awfulness.
ONE: Buy something else. Maybe I found something which wasn't completely dreadful in the item, but not enough for me to recommend it when there are better comics available. I only want what's best for you, my children.
TWO: Basic judgment call. I found some value, but not enough to recommend it. My review should give you enough info to decide if you want to take a chance on it. Are you feeling lucky today, punk? Well, are you?
THREE: This denotes something I find perfectly respectable. There are better books out there, but I wouldn't regret buying this item. Based on my review, you should be able to determine if it's of interest to you. Let the Force guide you.
FOUR: I recommend anything earning this rating. Unless you don't like the genre, subject matter, or past work of the creators, I believe you'll enjoy this item. Isn't it uncanny how I can look right into your soul that way?
FIVE: Anything getting this rating is among the best comicdom has to offer. You should buy/read this, even if the genre/subject matter doesn't appeal to you. It's for your own good. Me, I live for comics and books this good...but not in a pathetic "Comic-Book Guy" sort of way.
Please send material you would like me to review to:
