My first column for the new Robot 6 blog is now up and ready for reading. The name of the weekly feature is "Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs" and it's going to be all about fun adventure comics. The stuff that falls between art comix and the serious, event-heavy superhero stuff. I couldn't be more stoked about it. It's exactly the kind of thing I usually talk about here, so if you're one of the ten people who likes this blog, I think you'll like GRD as well. Like Robot 6 needs the hits I'm sending them.
I'm loving the new blog, by the way. Everything from the robot motif to the color scheme to the general feeling of giddiness that the contributors are feeling right now. It's a fun place to be.
It seems to be pretty well received too. We've been getting a lot of attention this week and I've loved reading all the posts welcoming us back. I think my favorite though has to be this one from ComicMix explaining what happened to Robots 1-5.
Robot 1 sank into the swamp.You get the idea.
Robot 2 sank into the swamp.
Robot 3 burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp.
Anyway, I'll be posting there at least twice a week. Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs will be on Wednesdays; Thursdays are my days to contribute to a group feature called Robot Reviews (hopefully that second link will eventually work; there aren't any tags in that category as I'm writing this, so I'm guessing at the URL). I'll also be contributing nonsense to occasional roundtable pieces like these two: Our Favorite Comics of 2008 and What Are You Reading?.
So, lots of Michael May going on at Robot 6. I hope you'll visit a bunch and comment when you do. It's going to be a blast.
