Happy Birthday Dan! a/k/a Big Blog Announcement!!!


Thursday, July 30, 2009

Happy 33rd birthday, Dan! (You are now the same age that Jesus was when he was crucified. What have you accomplished so far with your life?)

Most readers have probably already noticed one of the ways we’ve been celebrating Dan’s big day here on the blog: We’re adding a few new voices to the mix. There’s no denying that in recent months Dan, Frank, and I have found ourselves returning again and again to the same old subjects: I dither endlessly trying to figure out which word to use about what, Frank “riffs” on color ad nauseum infinitum, and Dan posts transparent publicity blurbs for PictureBox and/or his friends. It’s getting a little tiresome for all of us.

So it’s my pleasure to welcome two amazing writers to the fold, Jeet Heer and Dash Shaw, comics luminaries who surely need no introduction. (If you do need introductions, click over to their sites and start browsing around—you won’t regret it.) Most likely, they will both be gracing us with their online presence once or twice a month, and we couldn’t be happier that they have agreed to participate. They will undoubtedly enrich the site greatly in the weeks to come.

By the way, there will be more surprises in the near future here at Comics Comics, so don’t forget to keep checking in.

Thanks, everyone.

    Wonderful news! I enjoyed Dash's first entry, both for his point of view and research.

    "ad nauseum"?

    Sorry, Frank! I changed it. I was just having trouble yesterday thinking of synonyms for "over and over again."

  4. Frank Santoro says:

    that made me laugh.

    that dog photo is disturbing.

    I think Jeet is going to give you guys a run for your money. He is one of my fav writers in comics criticism. The man can drop facts like no one else.
