Hey, all. Thanks for stopping by to take a look at the official DANGER DIGEST blog, where zaniness will certainly ensue. Before I let the dams spill forth, here’s a brief description of what you can expect to find.
First off, allow me to rather obliquely explain the name. THE DANGER DIGEST signifies the full corpus of my adventures into comics, from the comic-related blogs you’ll find here to the web comic that goes by the same moniker and will debut later this year over at www.dangerdigest.com (don’t rush over there yet, though, because all you’ll find is an unassuming—and unimpressive—page declaring the site to be under construction). As the launch of that comic approaches, there’ll be announcements aplenty gracing this page.
My primary focus here is comics, and in that vein most of the blogging will be editorial pieces on the art and business of comics, fitting into one of three columns. In no particular order, those columns are MEMORIES FROM THE LONGBOX, PAGE AND PANEL, and BAG IT AND BOARD IT. MEMORIES FROM THE LONGBOX will explore the experience of collecting comics by focusing on individual issues that have been important to me over the years as I’ve added them to my personal collection. PAGE AND PANEL will examine particular pages and panels (see where I got that clever title?) that I find outstanding in one way or another. Lastly, BAG IT AND BOARD IT will present my weekly review of the new books I picked up before I slip them into their polys and longboxes.
Doubtless, other writing will pop up here that can’t be so easily categorized, and I’ll probably even venture outside of comics from time to time to dabble wherever else my heart so desires. Throughout the adventure, feel free to post your comments and let me know what you’re thinking.
So, here goes. Yo-ho!
