Meanwhile, at the Comic Blog Elite: High Five! Comics

Posted by: Matt Bergin on March 4, 2010 at 3:06 pm

One thing everyone wants in a blogger is enthusiasm for the blog’s subject matter, but it is just natural for fanboys and fangirls to gravitate toward the curmudgeonly nit-picker role more often than not. The CBE has plenty of dedicated fansites–shrines to characters or creators–where there is nothing but love shown to the focus, but finding a blogger who covers all corners of the comics industry writing reviews and analysis with genuine excitement and love for his or her content is something to be cherished. Now few things say excitement or enthusiasm quite like an exclamation point in the middle of a website’s name…except maybe a high five–which is why High Five! Comics is getting the CBE Spotlight treatment.

So what if it takes a team of three geeks to muster this ellusive enthusiasm I seek? And so what if this trio often claims to be drunk when they come up with their content? Blame it on the a- a- a- alcohol, if you must, but the High Five trio get the job done. Three writers make for a reliable schedule of regular posts, often playing off one another, but generally just doing their own individual things. Readers get a nice mix of straight-up comic book reviews, opinion pieces, and–for those missing curmudgeonly nit-picking–the occassional rant.

Hold a hand up high for the team of Johnny, Maggie, and their neighbor Rob, and check out their blog. They won’t leave you hanging.
