Twitter book club

Hey, just wanted to mention, hopefully without over-promising since none of us have ever done this before, that some folks will be talking about Top Shelf’s AX anthology on Twitter tonight. We’re going to go story by story, giving quick impressions of each. Perhaps there will be a bonus round. Who can say? But it should be a fun experiment, if nothing else. We’re planning on using the hashtag #AXed, if you’re curious, and things are set to begin at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. At the moment, the group includes myself (@MangaCur), Deb (About.Com, @debaoki) Aoki, Tucker (The Factual Opinion, @factualopinion) Stone, and Ryan (Same Hat!, @remoteryan) Sands.

Updated: Well, we made it through about half of the book in a lively discussion that also included David (Comics Alliance, 4thLetter, @hermanos) Brothers, Sean (A Case Suitable for Treatment, @toukochan) Gaffney and Jog (Jog – the Blog, @snubpollard) Mack, which you can check out by searching for the #AXed hashtag on Twitter. I believe we’re planning to resume on Sunday, though I’m not sure on a time. I’ll post when I hear something, and I’ll get Deb Aoki’s transcript of part one posted either this evening or tomorrow morning.

    Sounds interesting. I picked my copy up yesterday so haven’t had chance to read more than the first few stories so far.
    I don’t use twitter (or really know how) but would be interested in following along. Can you let me know the simplest way? Would I have to set up a twitter account?

      I’ll post a transcript Sunday or Monday, so you can just check back here. If you don’t mind setting up a Twitter account, you can just type #AXed into the search field.

    Gah, it’s things like this that make me re-think my silly rule not to get involved in twitter…

    Glad it’s eastern standard, since I’m on east coast. Pacific time is always a hassle. Looking forward to it. Who knows, might get me to buy. 😀

    I haven’t read AX but it sounds up my alley, I liked the excerpt on PW, and the cover design is aces. I’ll be eavesdropping/Twitter lurking.
