I’m no good at this, sappy reflective stuff. I’ve written and rewritten this probably 5 times at this point. To no avail.
DC Universe Book Club (DCUBC, as we call it) turns 1 today. One whole year. I still can’t believe it. It feels like just yesterday I made a post on these very forums asking if there was any interest in such a group.
This last year has been a blast. It’s been such a treat to read and get to know all of you. This is the first time I’ve really got to talk to people about Comics. I love hosting this club.
I could go on and on about how much this little group means to me, but it’s not about me. It’s about all of you who help make this whole thing possible. So I wanted to highlight a number of you.
@Don_El who covered for me Week 1 when I was late opening up discussion. Don has since been a staple of our group. It wouldn’t be the same without him. In addition Don has been hosting a Legion of Super-Heroes book club now in it’s 20th week.
@Nathan.Payson who has been an instrumental member of the community. Nathan has run our Discord channel since day 1 and provided us with a safe space to talk and discuss. Nathan also does a ton of great stuff in the forums. I’ll leave a link to his excellent Rebirth reading order below.
@Applejack whose support was crucial in helping us get off the ground. If we ever hit a snag she is always there to lend a hand.
The entire moderation team for cultivating and maintaining a safe space for all of us.
Lastly, and most importantly @JLWWSM. JL reached out at the end of last year and pitched me on Girl Power! (Which we do once a month!) Slowly she transitioned into hosting every other week. Simply put, I wouldn’t have been able to keep this going without her. Not only has she taken a huge burden off of me, she’s brought such a great perspective on the books we pick. I couldn’t have asked for a better Co Host.
To those listed above and to really anyone who has swung by our little book club. Thank you.
