Theme weeks

We love 'em, but we've neglected them recently. And that's a crying shame!

On the last requests post we had a decent thread going re: suggestions of which themes people would like to see being featured and even prior to that the mod comm's been talking about bringing these back. See any you like?

One Perfect Moment week
Angst week
Retcon week
Ape week
Robot week
Body-swap week
Time travel week
Dude in distress week
This is Why week
where posters explain exactly what it is about a certain character, title, artist that they like, dislike etc.
My First... theme would be a good way for posters to reminisce about their first comics reading experience. or the first issue of their favourite title, and could bring some new faces and books into the mix
Porn Week (a perennial, to the point that I'd suggest we concentrate on previously un-featured creators)

We've had some of these before (as well as others not listed; check through the tags), but some are brand new. Is there anything else you'd like to see as a week-long all-comers postfest?

Lurkers? Speak up! New members? Post!

Think about what you love, or what you've been meaning to share. Would that fit with any of these themes? Does it suggest a new theme to you?

In comments: VOTE. TALK. SUGGEST.

Let's hear it, Dailians.

Such excellent weeks! Body-swap week, dude in distress week, My first week...and of course porn week, but any week can be porn week, so I feel it should be something else.

Hmmmmm. Dude In Distress week!

This Is Why sounds great because it could go in so many different ways.

They all look good, though Time Travel, Retcon and My First... weeks all are favorites.

Stuff I'd add? Hmmm.

How about Real World People week, Geography Fail week or Mirror, Mirror week (where you showcase characters acting opposite for whatever reason [mind control, evil duplicate, alternate reality])?

Just posted what I had for Ape Week, but I might be able to scrounge up another. Might be able to do any of the others except Porn Week--I have a lot of stuff your "moral guardian" type might mistake for porn, but little actual pornography. Maybe some B Gata H Kei if I can find my copy, but scanning from tankoubon is always tricky.

I am all for supporting Porn Week. The lack of porn circulating aorund s_d has been deplorable lately. Simply deplorable.

Also, we need Cute Romance Stuff Week for Valentine's Day.

Cute Romance is something which can certainly be tremendously interesting. We've had far too little of those romances lately.

Wow. What a great list.
My favorites are Robot, Time travel, and Ape week, though I think the latter could be broadened to Animal week.

And if Angst week goes forward, there is a great bit in the Spider-Island Herc issues where he is overcome with Spider-angst - hilarious!

Retcon week could be fun too, especially if multiple posts of the same scene/scenes are posted together, although I guess this is more interpretation than retcons sometimes. I'm picturing 10 versions of Kal-el's rocket taking off from Krypton.

A new week is starting in just a couple of days. Will it be a theme week? I hope so! I can't wait!

Of the original post:

One Perfect Moment week: I loved this last time around, so I'd love to contribute this time.
Ape week: Because it'll be silly.
This is Why: The main cause of this community, IMO, is sharing awesome comics, so a highlight of this is almost required.
My First . . . : I wish I could FIND the first comic I read. I remember it distinctly. It was in the early 90s (I think it was after the death of Superman) and had a distinct coloring style. It had Batman training a woman (I don't know who, I think she was a red head) and infiltrating an underground fighting league and breaking it up. Shit, if I could remember what it was . . .
Porn Week: Which is always hilarious.

Of the other suggestions: Real World People, Mirror Mirror and Highlighted Geography all sound good too.

my First time was special... i remember it was a dark and musty room... the lights were dim... no really it was an old comic shop with TONS of books every where...

well technically, i THINK i got my first comic "Pack" from K-Mart (it was like a pack of sic comics... one was issue one of the Superboy tv show comic, one was a Action Comics issue with plasticman in it, and one was an issue of Batman Detective comics which showed the first meeting between Dick and Jason, and dick tells the story of how he was kicked from the job and how he found out about Jason.

but really, the first time i fell in love with comics was in the musty old comic shop, where i first read Crisis on Infinite Earths #7.... no book struck me like that one did.... i still cry when i read it, and i am not ashamed to admit it!

Great Final Issues week? We had so many abrupt cancellations lately it would be nice to see some of the best examples of how to do it right?

Current Era Compression week? So many comics nowadays are spread thinner than butter that it might be nice to see writers who manage to tell great and complete stories in just 20+ pages.

Sex Scenes week? A not quite porn week where we search for some of the best scenes of sex and/or implied sex in comics which manage to be both enjoyable to read and do not go into the realm of fanservice as their purpose.

I'll have to think a bit more about some more hypothesis later.

I love the ideas of the first experience with comics week and OPM week. If I am allowed to suggest one extra week then it'd be great to have a week where we post old stories and pretend we lived in those days. Just imagine what would have happened if Scans Daily existed when Superman died, the Crisis changed it all, Spidey got married and Image Comics appeared. It'd be bodacious.

How about non-English language comic week? It could get a nice international feel going, and if you encourage people to reply in the same language as the source material, it might attract a lot of interesting comments from people who usually just lurk.

The last comment made me think of DressUp week. Characters dressing up as other heroes/villains. So like the JSA post not too long ago where their girlfriends adopted their identities. Or when Nightwing got a Green Lantern ring. That kind of stuff.

I finally found scans of the Marvel Comics special Dinosaur thing from the early 90s and then there's Prehistoric Reptiles too.

And Devil Dinosaur.

Yeah, there's enough for a Dinosaur Week. I could post in it even!

Final stories week?

A week on the wrap-up stories everyone gets before a crisis, reboot, or just cancelation.

I like Dude in Distress week .

My suggestion: Brick Joke Week which is short for "Things Said/Done in a Previous Issues that Seemed Small and Unrelated Until This Issue Where It Comes Back".

I'm kind of against a Porn Week.

Not because I'm some kind of prude, but I remember one time where it basically became "Come up with something even MORE disgusting to make the whole comm sick", where every poster tried to up the ante with disturbing porn.

I would also prefer a This is Why week without the "hate" aspect, because I feel like we already have had enough "hate weeks"

What about "Indie Week", "My First Comic Week"?

In honor of Valentine's Day, I also want a "Romance Week" of really romantic gestures done by characters.
