A Month of Comic Book Sites – Gentlemen of Leisure
All throughout June, I’ll spotlight a different web site about comic books.. Like with the month of independent comics, the month of LGBT comics and last month’s month of webcomics, I figure I will let you comic book site/blog owners out there suggest your comic book web site (or blog) for spotlight during this month. So if you want me to spotlight your comic book site, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Today we look at a blog about a trio of friends who write about the worlds of comic books, TV, film and sports as the “gentlemen of leisure.” The site is coming up on its four year anniversary! The main writer (especially on comic book matters) is long-time commenter Teebore.
Besides just writing about whatever comes up in the world of sports, comics, TV and film, there are a number of regular features at the Gentlemen of Leisure. Pretty much all of the regular features are written by Teebore.
He is currently reviewing every single issue of X-Men, in order. He is up to Uncanny X-Men #112. Teebore does very thorough examinations of each issue (which makes sense, as the bit is titled “X-aminations”) that really give you a lot of insight into each of the issues. You can check out the archive of X-aminations here.
Speaking of in-depth examinations, Teebore also has a regular column where he goes into great detail for profiles on specific comic book characters. The piece is called To Better Know a Hero (or villain, as the case may be). You can check the archive out here.
Teebore also does a weekly “Last Week in TV” feature that you can see archived here.
Dr. Bitz also posts with decent regularity, as well, and his pieces are often quite amusing. He does good posts about baseballl and he had a funny bit about phrases he would like to see less of.
I don’t believe I’ve actually seen a post from the third member of the group, boots, in quite some time.
