In the spirit of the Bill Murray film, "Groundhog Day," this will be a month-long opportunity to chase away the winter blahs by revisiting and discussing those stories and runs in your collection that you can't help but choose to experience again and again and again.
There's no specific structure to the event. Can you start a review thread for the issues you are re-reading?
Can you more informally discuss them in a general thread?
Can you start polls and ranked lists for favorite runs everyone seems to love re-reading?

I like this idea. Perhaps I will make it a goal to select 5 stories to re-read and see how they hold up compared to when I first read them. I will have to think on this list though over the next few days.
None of you seem to understand...I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with ME!

This is great timing, as I'm currently in the middle of my annual reread of Fables. Due to an influx of other books that I want to get to, I may stop at #75 this time instead of running through the entire series, but with a lot of swim meets coming up, the TPBs travel well in a backpack as opposed to trying to cart old Power Man & Iron Fist floppies around.

The fact that there is a Highway to Hell but only a Stairway to Heaven should tell us all we need to know about expected future traffic.
Every year or so I reread Crisis on infinite earths Infinity Gauntlet Project Pegasus saga from Marvel 2 in one. Issues 59-60.of Marvel Team up X-MEN 125-128 Avengers 159-276 John Byrne's FF run Death in the Family. And in my opinion they all hold up and that's why I read them yearly.
