We’ve been batting around the idea of bringing the Book of Doom back here at Doomkopf.com, but it seems that whenever we’re talking about it, it’s just never the right week.
Well this week, there are four books coming out with either major events or the start of brand new arcs, thus serving as great jumping-on points for any readers out there who want to play along. Fin Fang Doom and I are going to celebrate the return of the Book of Doom by reviewing ALL FOUR in a special Return of the Book of Doom spanning four days.
So as always, we encourage you to join in by contributing your own reviews, either by e-mailing us at doomkopf at doomkopf dot com or joining in via the comments of the posts.
