Check it Out - Serious discourse about funny pages

I came across a couple of sites that appeal to me on both the verbal and visual levels. Thought you might want to check them out as well.

The first is Guttergeek, a site run by Jared Gardner providing "the discontinuous review of graphic narrative." The site reviews "graphic narratives" (the evolution of the comic book, newspaper comics, etc.) in bite-sized chunks of 500-1000 words since "longer reviews are probably best suited for other venues." I find the style and tone straightforward, often tongue-in-cheek, and thoroughly enjoyable.

The second site is [The Comics Curmudgeon] which provides daily updates by Josh Fruhlinger, a freelance editor and writer from Baltimore. Again, I like the tone and over-the-top writing style Josh uses to help "enhance" the comic-reading (and other content) experience. Fun.

Enjoy your Friday.

Cheers! - Jason
