Tempus Fugit

So it’s come to this…THREE years worth of Comics Should Be Good! Three years ago today, this little site was started up by Alex, Joe, two Pauls, Tadhg and myself (with a super cool name picked out by Joe). Thanks to Alex, Joe and Paul for co-founding this place!

Thanks to all of our regular guys – our two Gregs (Burgas and Hatcher), Brad Curran, Bill Reed and MarkAndrew. Plus 2 and 3, and our mascot, good ol’ 1!

And I can’t forget to mention the the contributions of Pól, Paul McEnery, Tadhg, Tom, Chad, Christopher, Harvey and Marionette.

Not to mention John Seavey’s Storytelling Engines, Lorendiac’s Lists and Kethylia’s Manga Mondays!

Thanks to Jonah for hosting the blog at Comic Book Resources and to Stephen for keeping up with all our tech stuff.

Thanks, also, to all those folks who come by to read our ramblings.

Thanks to the sites that link to us.

And thanks to anyone else that I forgot to thank!

These past three years have been a blast, and I hope…okay, I’m pretty darn certain that the fun will not stop any time soon.



They grow up so fast.

I’m waiting to be the 3rd person to post deserved congratulations to you, so that I can therefore be the dog and not the cat.


Hey, don’t thank us, you guys do all the work.

That’s what brings me back, after all.

Three years?

Kudos, folks.

Well done.

“super cool.” yeah, THAT’S it…

I love how the anniversary of this blog and my nervous breakdown coincide.

Happy birthday!

I almost thouhgt this post was about “Tempus Fugitive”, a mini-series from way back when, written and painted by Ken Steacy

YAY, CSBG! Congrats all. This is the only comics blog I read every day.

Congrats guys! Heck of an achievement!


How about a “highlight reel”?

Easily my favorite blog. You guys are muchly appreciated.

What kind of a person comes to a blog regularly and then complains about the name?

Congrats on the anniversary, guys. May you have many more to come.

I love the name, and agree with it wholeheartedly. Though, why anybody would disagree with the idea that comics should be good is, again, beyond me.

Love the site. Keep it up.

Congrats! This really is a fun place to read about and discuss comics. Not only do I enjoy the various writers, but I also enjoy the community here – Apodaca, FunkyGreenJerusalem, yo go re, (just to pick a few from the comments above), and many, many more are also a big part of what I enjoy here.

Congratulations, Brian! Like a few others have said, this is the only comics blog I read every day.

Congrats! Three years, nice!

Now if I can just keep this gruelling post-a-year pace up…
