The Honor Roll is a weekly column where I rundown five interesting posts, comments or developments that are buzzing about the comics blogosphere. This isn’t about events in the books themselves – we all know what happens there – merely a bit of navel gazing. Worse, it’s subject to my own myopic interpretation of what’s interesting or funny. Enjoy.
5) Ye Olde Comick Booke Blogge is actually a new comic book blog, spun out of 2 Guys Buying Comics. Jake does a pretty good job tracing a boatload of Bendis crep back to the infamous Powers Monkey issue, and then attributes it to Bendis’ evil twin. I think Jake is on to something. If nothing else he’s carving a nice little niche in the comic blogosphere as our answer to Oliver Stone. Soon we’ll see him on Larry King holding up two photos of Bendis, “You see, in this picture…”
4) Irrelephant. Heh.
3) Jon Cormier of hypnoray provides Eleven reasons for new comers to check out The Best of The Spirit. I have this collection sitting on a shelf – time to read that baby.
2) As to Ian Brill’s open question to everyone who has at any time left comics: what brought you back? Well, I’ve answered this question in too much detail already, so I begged off leaving my own lurid story. But I was shocked, shocked I say, at how many people have quit comics for a fairly extended periods and then returned. My nearly 25 year gap may yet hold up as the record though.
