Blog Recommendations?

I noticed that my blogroll was getting a little sparse these days, so I’m looking for suggestions. I like blogs that focus mostly or exclusively on comics, that talk about more than just superheroes, and that update regularly. What comic blogs do you read regularly and why?

    If I can make a pre-emptive suggestion, don’t nominate your own blog. Give someone else you like a plug.

    Oh, great point.

    Pop Syndicate’s Comic Book Blog at http://www.popsyndicate.com/comics is a really good one that updates on a regular basis.

    For general comics coverage, I start with Tom Spurgeon’s The Comics Reporter and Dirk Deppey’s Journalista.

    For manga coverage, I enjoy Deb Aoki’s blog at About.com. And three recent adds to my blogroll have been pretty good reading lately:
    * A Geek By Any Other Name – anime and manga industry coverage, probably weighted more towards
    anime
    * Slightly Biased Manga – manga reviews
    * Soliloquy in Blue – manga reviews

    Finally, for comics aimed at younger kids, Good Comics for Kids is a wonderful resource. I especially like how they look over the Diamond release lists each week and highlight the books appropriate for kids.

    Well, there’s Jog, of course. I also like J. Caleb Mozzocco at Every Day Is Like Wednesday; he covers a lot of superhero stuff, but he’s a really entertaining writer, and he talks about lots of other types of comics as well. And Tucker Stone’s The Factual Opinion is great, putting a lot of derisive, profane humor into mainstream comics reviews, but also spotlighting some lesser-known stuff.

    Thanks, everyone, I’ll check those out!

    I recommend Chris Butcher’s blog Comics212.net

    He manages the Toronto store The Beguiling. Fun , intelligent read.
