New Blogs Added To The Sidebar

In the recent weeks I've come across some new-to-me comic book blogs that I felt the need to share with you all. In alphabetical order:

  • Brill Building : I'm sure everyone knows about this one, and I must admit, I have been meaning to add Ian to the links section for quite some time, I just got lazy. Ian's wide eyed, enthusiastic outlook towards comics always comes off in a way that makes me believe he's new to the game, when in fact, he's been reading comics for awhile. He's not the jaded kind of blogger like so many of us on the internet, which is always refreshing. If only his college education was over with, we'd get more updates.

  • The Gentle Scent of Pee In Your Longbox : This is my Fan Boy Rampage. A group blog on LiveJournal that points out interesting little things of comic book related nerdness on the internet. Sometimes funny, sometimes informational, all good stuff.

  • Ken Lowery Presents: Ringwood : Updated on a very irregular basis, when it does, its good. Making me feel bad for not liking The Comics Journal is no easy feat, but Ken Lowery did it.

  • So So Silver Age : This blog is the double whammy of an arch-nemesis. Its DC-centric and ran by girls! That's grounds for war! Really though, as I slowly sink into the juicer bits of DC's back catalogue, its interesting to read some very well written commentary on characters like Hal Jordan. Homoerotic blank days posts are fun, too.

  • Written World : Ragnell's blog is a bit like the So So Silver Age, except her hatred of the women of DC almost makes her a double agent. That or Devin Grayson in disguise. I haven't decided yet. She also gets bonus points for being funny.

  • Zilla and the Comic Junkies : Zilla's blog is well designed and fun. Zilla's an unabashed fan of super hero comics and it shows. The panel of the day is a nice little added touch.

Blog of note : Earth-2 Leigh's The House Of L. Leigh is funny and doesn't update his shit enough for me. Maybe if everyone bugs him, we get some more funny tidbits about glowing vaginas and the Goddamn Flatman. And he was the first to spoof the Sexy Chix with Hunk Dudez.

Thanks for the link to "The Gentle Scent of Pee in Your Longbox's Journal". I'm sure I'm not the only one looking for a replacement Fanboy Rampage.

Hey, thanks for the shout-out. I prepared a little response for you back on my home turf. :)

I think we are all looking for a substitute for the Rampage.
