10 best graphic novel and comic book blogs

this from David Seidman at
David SeidmanDavid Seidman has been in the graphic-novel and comic-book business since the early 1990s. Among other things, he's been a graphic novel and comic book writer, an editor of comics and graphic novels, an essayist on the graphic-novel industry for the book-industry Bible Publishers Weekly and other publications. He's also been a teacher of writing comics and graphic novels, and a publicist for NBM Publishing, Papercutz, and other graphic-novel houses. (F.Y.I., NBM is starting its own blog, by the company's writers and artists!) And finally, he's been the host of a monthly networking dinner for Los Angeles' comic-book and graphic-novel industry. His take on this list: "These comics-related blogs are fun to read and strikingly informative. Check them often, and you'll be as well-informed as almost any comics insider."
