Time is a Jet Plane, it Moves Too Fast

Yep, so it’s come to this…EIGHT years of Comics Should Be Good! Eight years ago today this little ol’ blog was started up by Alex, Joe, two Pauls, Tadhg and myself (with a super cool name picked out by Joe). Thanks guys, for starting this place up with me! We’ve come a long way from being a blog just devoted to Joe Rice’s drunken reviews of the films of Roddy Piper!

Thanks to all of our regular folks – our two Gregs (Burgas and Hatcher), Bill Reed, MarkAndrew, , Chad Nevett, Kelly Thompson, Sonia Harris, Ken H., Connie C. and Melissa K.!

Plus past contributions from ScottBrad Curran, Danielle Leigh, Alex, Joe, Megan Parker, Michelle, Melinda, Paul Teel, Pol, Paul McEnery, Tadhg, Tom, Chad, Christopher, Harvey and Marionette.

Plus, of course, the features we host here (or have hosted), like Sean and Brandon’s Comic Critics, Kelly, Sue and Maddy’s 3 Chicks Review Comics podcast, Dean Trippe’s The Good Stuff, John Seavey’s Storytelling Engines, Kethylia’s Manga Mondays, Lorendiac’s Lists, The Line it is Drawn and Al and Paul’s House to Astonish!

Thanks to Jonah for hosting the blog at Comic Book Resources and to Stephen for keeping everything running smoothly!

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

Thanks to the sites that link to us.

Oh, thanks to those folks who bought my first book! Please buy my NEW book, Why Does Batman Carry Shark Repellent and Other Amazing Comic Trivia!

And thanks to anyone else that I forgot to thank!

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


Congrats, CSBG! You’re a big girl now!

thank you for existing! hope to see this blog alive in next 8 years

Mazel tov! This is one of my mandatory daily reads. Thanks for continuously entertaining content.

Congratulations and thank you for creating such an amazing community.

Well done, cats and kittens. Keep typing ‘em, I’ll keep reading ‘em.

Congrats! I’ve just recently discovered CSBG and you have so much good writing it’s hard to read it all! But I’m trying!

Add me to the chorus. This site is tops, a good read every day of the week. Congratulations on the anniversary, and I hope to see this site around for as long as comics are published.

Happy 8th birthday CBR team.
Can we expect one hundred more years? :D

Thanks for all the great work!


Congrats everybody! The work that goes into this site really shows!

Happy birthday! Good to know you’re sticking around! :D

Thx for the hard work and great articles Brian and Co. *Raises glass of YooHoo* Here’s to future success in upcoming years!

A great site – happy birthday. The only pop culture website I read regularly. Congratulations!

Herzlichen Glückwunsch.

Wow, it seems like just yesterday that you finally took the “5 years” logo down because it hadn’t been true for about a year. ;)

I’m proud to have contributed a few things here, and I hope to contribute more in the future (other than just my babblings in the comments). I think we have a cool community here, easy to join in with the simple commenting format, and quite civil overall, even considering that Brian lets us say just about anything that isn’t out and out jerky. (mmm, jerky)

So congrats to us all!

Felicidades! I hardly read new stuff anymore but am all about the classics. This is the ONLY comics blog I still visit on a daily basis and it’s ALWAYS worth it.

Here’s to eight more!

Congratulations on eight years!
