One of my favourite comics news sites is about to undergo a reavmap and name change, so be ready to update your book marks.
Since its creation in 2000, Silverbulletcomicbooks.com (SBC) has been one of the most frequented sites for comic book-focused reviews, commentary and features. In 2005, the site won an Eagle Award for “Favourite Comics-Related Website,” and hosts a plethora of entertaining columns such as “All The Rage” and Beau Smith’s “Busted Knuckles,” among many others.
In the coming months though, SBC will be re-launched as ComicsBulletin.com with a completely re-designed website.
“Nearly eight years ago we launched a site into the burgeoning field of comics journalism,” said SBC/Comics Bulletin publisher Jason Brice. “In that time, Silver Bullet Comics has become recognized as the pre-eminent site for comics criticism and has featured the writing of a huge number of fans and professionals. It’s axiomatic in many industries that any organisation must ‘change or die,’ and so to that end, we’re moving to the next step in evolution, with a new name, a new design, and a new approach to what we do best.
“I’m incredibly proud of the outstanding team of writers, editors, designers, and programmers that we have put together for this venture. I’m certain that the thousands of comics fans and professionals that witness our transformation into Comics Bulletin will be amazed at what we have planned and will witness a paradigm shift in the way our industry understands comics journalism. Comics Bulletin is the way ahead.”
It will be interesting to see how the new site develops and what new features will be added to an already-terrific web site. Good luck, folks!
