Comic Book Blogger Blogaround

Here's mine...

  • Jumbotron 6000 is a blog with some solid reviews of recent comics and a giveaway of James Kochalka's Sketchbook Diaries Vol. 3 (which ends at midnight tonight, so go enter). Recent entries include linkblogging with good commentary on each link. Jim McGrath is the writer of this blog.
  • Comics-and-More seems to have a winning formula. Dave Ferraro writes this one, which is a nice mix of reviews and thoughts and general comments.
  • Pata runs a Manga blog called Irresponsible Pictures. I may have to watch this one for a better understanding of manga.
  • I'm not sure what to make of Greg Burgas' Delenda Est Carthago. It's a busy and interesting blog, and worth reading through.
  • Matt runs Highway 62, a fairly standard comic book blog that includes teasers and thoughts and all that good stuff.
  • Funnybook Musings by Ryan Murray is mostly about reviewing comic books. I like these reviews a lot. Very much better than my little capsules. Good stuff here.
  • More Manga at Love Manga run by David Taylor. There's some good information here, but not a lot of opinion compared to other blogs.
  • Sean Maher's Quality Control has an interesting take on comics. Recent posts are focusing, if I understand this correctly, on good comics to read whilst ... um... sitting. Yeah... sitting. For more details, go look at the blog.
  • Snark Free Waters, a group blog, has content that any comic book fan can enjoy in a non-snarky or completely snarky way. I'd run across this one recently thanks to the Top Five Bare-Chested Marvel Superheroes, but there's a lot more there.
  • Mark Fossen is responsible for Focused Totality, a neat blog with cool articles. I like the fact that this one covers Manga and American superhero books. Go on, check it out.
  • Brian Cooksey owns the awesomely named Noetic Concordance, which only took me three tries to spell out correctly in the link. I do, however, know what both words mean, which is a bonus for me. I think my only complaint with this blog is that I wish it was updated a little more often.
  • I think I'm in love with Raphe's Thirty-two Pages of Love blog, which is about romance comic books. In particular, this entry hit home for me. No one expects me to enjoy Aquaman jokes for the same reasons.

Seems to me like this is a good idea for a regular blog post, especially if comics blogs keep appearing at the rate they've appeared recently. Heh. Anyway, I think I got at least ten in up there. So, anyone done their own blogaround recently? Have any thoughts on the blogs I visited?
