Redartz: Well, it's Thanksgiving week here in the USofA. So many of us will be busy preparing, travelling, cooking, or just building an appetite. And for all our friends 'cross the waves', hopefully a good week is underway as the holiday season approaches. At any rate, here at BitBA we like to keep up the conversation, so: I'm thankful for each one of you that takes a few minutes from your busy days to visit . Also many thanks for all the great subjects you've submitted this year. Which reminds me, what do you have for a topic today?
As we await your answer to that question, here's another for you. This question is inspired by our fine friend Doug over at Black, White and Bronze (which you should definitely check out, if you haven't yet). Over the past months Doug has presented a very thoughtful analysis and review of the monumental graphic story "Maus", by Art Speigelman. While reading Doug's column, it struck me that if somebody asked me what one single comics story they really should read, just one single comic story among all, Maus would be the one. And so, my specific challenge for you: if you could recommend to someone a single comic story (may be a single issue, may be a single story), one which impacted you like no other, one you would say EVERYONE needs to read, what would it be?
Best wishes to all, and thanks in advance for your participation!

Redartz: Greetings; and welcome to the weekly meeting of Bronze age enthusiasts known as "Follow the Leader". And being the 150th. edition of said category, we shall observe this momentous occasion by looking over some comic books that reached that same milestone. So while you cogitate upon a promising topic for the week, enjoy these 'century and a half' covers!

Redartz: Welcome, welcome, welcome! The day is here, the audience awaits, all we need is a brave soul with a topic for the week! It's your big chance; that question you've been pondering may be just what we've all been needing to discuss. So have at it; the world (or at least this little corner of the internet) is your oyster!

Redartz: Welcome to our little Bronze age sharing session for the first week of November! Here in the US of A we (or most of us, anyway) just changed our clocks back for Daylight Savings Time. Not sure that it saves much, but there it is. As we await our first hardy responder with a topic for the week, let's think a bit about time. Did time in your youth seem more plentiful, or did school and other responsibilities eat it up like work in adulthood? Did you find it tough to fill your time, or did you never have enough of it? Were you aware of the overall pop cultural time frame in which you lived, or was it just Tuesday? What say we 'kill some time' and chat.
