After far too many years of doing this, I’ve decided that my days of regular updates are over. I don’t want to say that this is my final post, since it’s possible I’ll want to use this space again for other purposes, but I’m fairly confident that my days of regular updates are over.
I started this blog in 2007, when the easiest shorthand reference for a bad comic remained ’90s Marvel, or more specifically, ’90s X-books. The people working in comics didn’t seem to disagree. Today, you can buy actual $100 hardcover reprints of Rob Liefeld X-Force comics. Lord help us, Avengers: The Crossing is even available in hardcover. ’90s storylines routinely receive sequels these days. Bishop, Blink, and Deadpool have appeared in multi-million dollar movies. There are working professionals in the entertainment industry that weren’t even born when Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man #1 blessed us with its multi-cover glory. And the blogging boom that inspired me to create an alternate site to explore the ’90s is long dead.
I’d like to thank anyone who ever posted a link or left a comment during the past eight years. Mike Sterling was the first to post a link during my initial week of blogging, giving me more readers early on than I probably deserved, so special thanks to him. I’d also like to thank folks like wwk5d and Matt for leaving comments here for as long as I can remember. And wherever you are Fnord Serious and cyke68, I hope you’re doing well.
I’m still around. You can follow me on Twitter if you’d like, and I’m open to writing for someone else’s site if the project’s right. You can email me through the Contact page. (Actually, I have an idea for another review series if anyone’s interested. Also, I’ll be doing more micro-reviews on Twitter in the future.) Feel free to contact me. Thanks for the support, and may all your web-lines be advantageous.
