What online comic media do you follow?

The used to write reviews for ComicCrusaders.com, so I look at their site still. I read ComicsBeat.com CBR.com and Comicbook.com for news regularly. Sufi Wire is a good site as well.

If you REALLY want awesome comic conversation, you have to go to the FM radio here in Austin. 91.7 KOOP on Wednesday evenings from 6-7. Amazing comic show. Which I could meet the DJ. šŸ™‚

-Bryan Spaulding

Through Twitter, I follow @Newsarama, @CBR, @bleedingcool, @01FirstSecond, @geneluenyang, @ZiaComics, @goraina, and naturally @AustinBooks.

-Peter A.

Bleeding Cool online,
And then Comic Tropes over on YouTube for a great and appreciative history of the comics medium.
And for physical reads Alter Ego and The Jack Kirby Collector.

Plus Austin Books of course. šŸ™‚

-Charles

@AustinBooks mind giving a local creator a signal boost? My Kickstarter is at almost $15,000! Lots of unlocked stretch goals, and a killer guest pinup section! We just announced this piece by Jeff Smith today.

Our hope is that this could inspire other creators and publishers to do the same to help out other local comic shops https://t.co/qVSIz06GBr AustinBooks photo
