    I'll probably do something myself, but I wondered if there was any interest in doing some kind of reread of the comics, either all seasons or ones in particular?

    lol that was Season 8
     
    Mr. Pole: I know it was 8.. just not sure how far.. it was before she became a robot I think. Oh wait.. I still have them, I can go look! Good thing I didnt throw them away, huh? Or bequeathed them to someone.

    If people could give their opinions on where they'd like to start, how many issues a week they think they could comfortably read, etc, that would be great?

    I'd like to re-read Season 8 again. I thought it was nonsense. But so many people here like it, so I might be wrong ;)

    I'm up for this. I could join for the issues I have, halfway through season 9. I was actually thinking of rereading the comics. I hadn't got round to season 9 and thought I'd start again, since season 8 was so crazy.

    I would be game to start at S8E01... but I don't care. As long as we read Vampy Cat Play Friend at one point I'd be cool.

    I only have season 8 but I could do that one at least! Recently re-read the first issue in an attempt to give it another try.

    Merl is cool but Vampy Cat is swell.

    I might jump in later around season 9 :)

    Last time we did a s8 reread I think we read 2-4 issues a week.

    4 issues a week would be easy I think.

    Would love to do season 8! It's the only one i own so far, and I really enjoy it. I was thinking of doing a review on it.

    Oh I am absolutely down. I would say that we should read either a single issue or a full trade each week.

    I feel like one issue is too little, because that would mean, just for the main series and not the one-shots, it would take 10 months to get through season 8.

    I could definitely do a full trade or even library edition per week. Too much?

    How many issues are usually in the trades/library editions?
