All blogs go to heaven Part V, and, yes, Cool Links for Today

Cool Links to follow these important announcements...


Rokk's Comic Book Revolution - Now found here, there's a podcast, with a couple blogs, one of which is fairly recent. They're still Rokkin' with a podcast posted yesterday.

IGN Comics - Not really a blog (though I think the Beat was hosted here a while ago), its'...well, I'll let them brag tell you: "We are the leading Internet media company focused on the video game and entertainment enthusiast markets." There is a comics news/reviews section.

The Sock Drawer - While trying to find what happened to this one, all I can tell you is there a lot of e-commerce sites for socks.

The Comics Reporter - This is a comics Mount Rushmore site. Tom Spurgeon has been a leader of spreading the gospel of comics for decades and his Comics Reporter site is a daily stop. In fact, it's my home page.

Prism Comics - Prism Comics is the leading non-profit, all-volunteer organization supporting  LGBTQIA-friendly comic books, comics professionals, readers and educators. However, activity seems to be sporadic, at least on the site. Plenty o'Twittering, though.


Motime Like the Present - Motime went away in 2012. I hate to say it, but most of the time, this one was waaaay over my head. And I'm smart.

Pop - This was Jeffrey Klaehn's blog, and it's gone now. He can be found as editor and/or writer of many publications, including this one.

Arflovers [Craig Yoe] - Craig's blog is long gone but he's published many nifty comic publications - check them out here.

Aparofan's World Of Comics - Mike Middleton's site is dead, but you can find him (and Jim Aparo-related stuff) here.

Those Fabuleous Fifties - Yes, that's how it's spelled, and Ger Apeldoorn posts vintage comic material nearly every day. Well worth a visit.

(* Permanote: I'm using Comicblogupdates and Update-A-Tron to facilitate this project. Quite a few of the links on these two sites rely on RSS/feeds. Some sites are still there; the link is just defunct)

Ok, here's some stuff...

I don't usually get into ad campaigns, but when I do, they're usually as good as this:

Happy 70th Birthday, Bobby Orr!

My god, I'm so old

This is the Most Important Thing Ever:

And, lastly for today, the fine folks over at Kerrang! have scientifically determined the best metal band in each state. Start the arguments here.

More tomorrow!
