    Comics Alliance and Robot 6. Sometimes the rest of CBR, but that's a rare occasion. I make a point of avoiding Bleeding Cool because I'm really tired of Rich Johnston.

    For what it's worth, I don't read any of them. If there's something new coming out by someone I don't actively search for I'm either out of luck or people post about it on the "Comics on Sale This Week" or "New Comics Talk" threads on here. Without this board I wouldn't've read anything by Brian Wood (DMZ was the first thing I knowingly read by him, now I have everything), Matt Fraction, or David Lapham, to name a few.

    The last time I took the time and went to various comic news sites it was either about the major two (which I don't want to read about), they were completely unnavigable, or they sounded like they were written by a hyperactive 8 year old drooling fanboy.

    MAJOR SPOILERS for mainstream comics/TV/movie news.
    io9 for more sci-fi based comics/media.
    THE BEAT for industry insider news.
    COMICS WORTH READING for female perspective comic news and because I like Johanna's writing.
    JOURNALISTA for the more cerebral side of things.
    BLEEDING COOL for an alternative look at the mainstream.

    I'll check out WHEN FANGIRLS ATTACK every once in a while to see what's in the hot seat.

    I love io9, particularly Charlie Jane Anders' posts.

    I get all my comics news from here and the mighty mighty Comic Book Queers podcast.
    • CommentTimeJul 31st 2010
    Really, I only read them when they are directly linked from Whitechapel or Warren's FB page...I am not the core constituency apparently.

    Just Bleeding Cool and what I gather from Whitechapel. Pretty much suits all my needs.

    Forbidden Planet - good mix of British American and European comics news
    Down the Tubes - solid British comics focus
    CBR - for the American comic book news
    Bleeding Cool - for the news before it is the news (although sometimes it isn't news and sometimes it never becomes news)
    Bugpowder - used to check it out more often but it isn't updated too regularly at the moment
    Hypergeek - from time to time, seems to reflect my tastes more

    I had forgotten about Journalista (must have lost it in a computer changeover at some point)

    Good tip on Coverless, consider it bookmarked.

    I must admit I'd be interested in a comics news site somewhere between CBR and BC (with a smattering of the other sites I mentioned) - something that isn't just a mouthpiece for the comics industry where they are up for doing a little journalism (that Comics Journal study a while back concluded no one was really doing comics journalism, although Rich's journalism experiment from a few years back coming even close), where contributors can follow their interests and unearth gems that might not get the coverage they deserve but not somewhere that is arse-achingly hip, edgy or cool (more that you end up following a writer because you share the same interests or you are just curious about what they'll find next).

    Although thinking about my comments above I suspect I am really talking about more of an online comics magazine (a magazine about comics and not a "comics magazine") - no pressure to be the very first to announce some scrap of comics news but taking a bit more time to look at the large picture, consult sources and provide a more rounded and useful overview of events. Blogs and news sites compete to be the ones to break some story about the latest title a comic company has announced and that rather killed comics magazines like Comics International which can't hope to compete on that front. It'd still be providing news but a more rounded and insightful picture that I know I'd be more interested in reading, as opposed to ADHD comics news sites like CBR where I find myself sticking my hand out into the news-drizzle to see if anything catches my interest but I am increasingly relying on others to pass along interesting developments.

    Comics Alliance, IO9 regularly
    CBR, IGN, GhettoManga less frequently
    Newsarama, ComicsVine when they cross my mind

    Bleeding Cool and CBR everyday right when I get home from work.
    Newsarama I check everyday but usually only read their reviews/ con video interviews and some creator print interviews
    IGN on Wed/Thur strictly for their reviews
    Ain't It Cool News on Wed. for their reviews also

    I stopped reading most the comic news sites awhile ago. I used to read Comic Alliance & CBR though. Something I do catch more often is G4's weekly online web series Fresh Ink, though it's more a review format than news. Actually in their most recent episode they more or less down right fellate a one Mr. Warren Ellis over the release of Absolute Planetary.

    Bleeding Cool
    White Chapel & w.EllisDOTCOm (not news sites but you know...)

    Traded Bleeding Cool (which sends a lot of movie-related stuff out on the RSS, which I'm not really interested in AT ALL) for Comic Alliance. Just happened to be the first one in my radar when I decided I wanted something there besides BC.

    CBR and Newsarama, although they're redundant, honestly.

    Bleeding Cool

    Just CBR, Newsarama, and comics continuum. Should probably find some more now that I think about it.
    • CommentTimeAug 12th 2010
    CBR, The Beat, Comics Alliance, Daily Cartoonist, The Comics Curmudgeon, and one or two more that aren't coming to mind right now.
