Update: New Site Design & New York Comic Con

October 11, 2012 | Drew | (2 Comments)

Hi, and welcome to the new design of reviewingcomics.com, I would love to hear your comments and other feedback; or any reports of any issues I overlooked in the designing and implementation of this relaunch.   I hope for this new design on both the front end and the back-end to facilitate and ease the possess of putting up reviews.

In Other news:    New York Comic con is this weekend, and I am looking forward to it! so after this weekend (and possibly next week) I look forward to getting back to a regular reviewing schedule.

One Year of Reviewing Comics

August 30, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

Reviewingcomics.com has just surpassed the one year mark of its first comic book review. Fantastic Four #1.  while the domain was registered on Aug. 26th  the birth of the site was really Aug 30th. when the first comic book review went up. In that year I have done over 180 reviews from over 150 different comic books; most of them where from comic books published my marvel between 1961 and 1964.  although a few where stories published just this year.

I am not going to get long-winded,  and talk much about my plans for the future of the site, other than to say I do  have a plan and goal for our second year of comics.  I am also not going to spend many words talking about the year that has passed.   what I do wish to say is Thank you:

I want to thank all you whom have visited my site, and read a review. I want to thank each person who has taken the time to write a comment or contact me in another way.  In my first year, it is you that have surprised me more than anything; if by nothing else then the shear number of readers i have gotten. I hope each of you continue reading, and please feel free to tell your friends!

Rest In Peace Joe Simon

December 16, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

Today I am sad to have learned of Joe Simon’s death, and may he rest in peace as we offer him a  few short words and a few moments of silent memory. Joe was born on October 11th 1913 in Rochester New York, and died December 14th 2011.

Joe Simon was one of comic book’s great creators,  He is perhaps best known for being the co-creator of Captain America along with Jack Kirby. But Captain America was far from  his only contribution from the comic book industry.

Joe & Jack worked extensively on other classics including Sandman, Boy Commando’s and Manhunter.  We all owe the great a deal to his creative vision,  even with him being from an era when comic creators did not get near enough credit. if you would like to read more on Joe I would suggest you pick up a copy of his book, an illustrated autobiography.

Thank you Joe for all your great work, and you will be remembered.
