Tweet Blog@Newsarama is both a long-running site in itself and the remains of one (The Great Curve) and the father of another (Robot6) blog that will all be remembered when the million selling “History of Comic Book Blogs” is written. Of late Graeme McMillan had been the sole poster, and he’s actually moved on to […]
TweetFollowing on from Heidi’s post about gender issues in the comics industry, the best response seemed clear: I should probably write a post about some gender issues. Which leads me to a question which has started to circulate through t’blogosphere recently: whilst we’re all very quick to leap onto DC and Marvel’s track record with […]
TweetAs we suggested yesterday, The NY Post has launched a new nerdy news blog called Parallel Worlds, edited by Dan Greenfield and others. The site has entered into a networking agreement with The Beat and two others. What does that mean? Well, just you’ll see Beat stuff linked on PW, and PW stuff linked here. […]
Tweet Official launch seems to be tomorrow, but in case you missed the bold-faced names, the NY Post seems to be launching its very own nerd/comics/gaming blog, called Parallel Worlds. The logo features the senseless yet thrilling image of Alexander Hamilton in a spacesuit. And if that’s how they roll, I’m on board. Thus far […]

Ulp. I guess blogging is dead. Artist John Martz just announced he’s ending his art blog, Drawn which was one of the most influential art blogs of the last 10 years or so. Martz started it in 2005 linking to tons of creator websites, and art pieces over the years. But as he notes, 2013 is not 2005:
And just like that, Yahoo head Marissa Mayer become the most important person in comics.

Much thanks and appreciation to my intrepid and talented writers — among them Charles, Sean, Brigid, Jorge, Kendra, Steven, Ali, Zack, Kevin, and Aaron. Thus MTV Geek editor in chief Valerie Gallaher announced her departure. According to Bleeding Cool, she resigned, […]
There was a lot of talk at C2E2 about press lists, who’s on, who’s off, how you get on and what’s expected. There’s no question that Marvel and Dc, like the studios that own them, want to have more control over a positive message about their products. Unquestionably, the very professional PR people who work at Marvel and DC know that this isn’t always possible, but they still have to do their jobs.
It seemed to start at this year’s ECCC, and before the year is out we’d expect it to be the new standard: streaming panels live from comic-cons for those who can’t go but want to follow along at home.
