A Month of Comic Book Sites – Comics And…Other Imaginary Tales
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 the group comic book commentary and reviews blog, Comics And…Other Imaginary Tales. Comics And… delivers a strong mixture of intelligent comic book reviews mixed with some compelling regular features, including a robust amount of “air time” to previewing upcoming independent comic books.
The “Secret Six” members of the blog are: Greg, Thomm, Gwen, Lee, Jim and Matthew
Like I mentioned, one of the most interesting aspects of COmics And… is the time they spend on independent books. This stands out in this three-part preview of independent books due out in August. Some intelligent commentary, and I like the dueal writer approach.
One of the writers, Matthew, has a recurring column of his musings that is often quite interesting. You can check out the archive of his pieces here.
They have had a number of interesting interview with comic book creators. Here is an archive of their past interviews. .
A good deal of the content of the site is comic book reviews, and the group so strong work in that field, coming up with a number of insightful thoughts (and the contrasting opinions from the different members of the blog is interesting).
