So, I recently got my hands on of the final 2099 comics missing from my collection (not counting the new Timestorm stuff or the Spider-man 2099 appearances in Exiles). So, I am thinking of rereading the entire series and doing reviews of them. Maybe a comic a day. That would give me about 274 issues covering the core 2099 comics plus the Marvel Knights 2099 stuff. Adding in the loosely related comics would bump that up a little more. Off the top of my head, I think there were a couple 4 issues minis plus an issue of X-Force that are in there. If I manage to get funds together to buy the Timestorm stuff and the missing Exiles issues I have, I could probably stretch this out to a year or so.

Question is, do I want to limit my reading to one a day?

Also, if I was to do this, do I think I could stay on top of it?

Finally, do i read the comics in the order they came out, or do I read entire series in one go (i.e. do I read all of Spider-Man, then all of Ravage, etc...or do I read an issue or two of Spider-Man, then an issue of Ravage, and then alternate between the issues as appropriate). The thing with this is that I kind of want to read entire story arcs all at once, but i know there was the crossover part way into the runs that would require me to read an issue of each to properly understand. But, I don't know if I want to do the work to organize the comics in publication order.

I will be sitting on this for a while until I can decide how I want to do it. So, keep an eye on the blog to see what happens.

Runaways v3 #10 is possibly the best issue of the series, in any volume. Considering how good the original series was, that is saying a lot.
