Second verse, same as the first

Posted by: Rich Watson on October 9, 2006 at 12:33 am

Hello again. For those of you joining me for the first time, this is the new Glyphs Online, now being hosted by my friends at Pop Culture Shock, whom I wanna thank for making this possible. Since May 2005 I have been keeping a blog devoted to news, commentary and other information about black comics and black creators, not to mention related work in other mediums like film and TV and novels. Why? Simply put, I felt there was a need for it, especially when there’s quite a deal of quality material out there that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. Characters and creators of color have come a long way in the industry, and there’s still a long way to go. Things have improved, but they could still be better. Here is where we’ll explore what’s going on with black creators and comics in the field, what we like about them, what we don’t like, and what we can do to bring about lasting change.

Let me make it clear once again that I am not nor have I ever been an expert. I do my best to cover this stuff, but I’m gonna make mistakes, I’m gonna forget things, and I’m gonna overlook things. I do not make my living off this (yet) and there are only so many hours in the day I can spare to this blog. With your help, though, I’ll do the best I can. So if you’ve got any news tips, press releases, or if you know about a creator you think I should write about, please drop me a line at cptsisko318@aol.com.

My monthly column “What’s a Nubian?” will be discontinued, since the plan is for me to have commentary and interviews on a somewhat more regular basis within the blog itself. I’ll still have the monthly Previews roundup, though. You’ll see how it works out once we get into full gear.

Okay, I’m clueless – what’s your new RSS feed, Rich? I only have time to read blog feeds now, rather than visiting the actual sites…
