LitFlix 2013

The following is our schedule for LitFlix this year. What is LitFlix? You ask. As we describe here and here, our plan is to read some source material (novels or comics) before seeing a great many movies this year. Then, our plan is to come back here and do some comparison work!

We plan on updating this page with links to each of the different posts once we have them. We will also try to keep this up-to-date with trailers for movies without them yet, and with some updated reading plans for some of the comic movies. Have some advice on comics to read in preparing for those movies? Post a comment here!
