Mike Gold: The Editor Babbles

Mike GoldWelcome to ComicMix — well, phase one of ComicMix.

This is the part where I’m supposed to explain who and what we are. In order to do so, I’m going to have to do something I rarely do and generally avoid: I’m going to speak seriously.

I’d like to say "welcome to the 21st Century," but I’m seven years late and not quite that pretentious. So I’ll get down to the details. Phase one of ComicMix is a community based around news, information, opinion and blogging, covering the entire range of the comic art medium and those elements in the broader media that we all tend to enjoy. We add this because, contrary to old-time fan thinking, we do not live in a vacuum.

We post the news continuously, we post our columns daily, we post our information and background stuff incessantly, we post our all-new podcasts thrice-weekly (starting Tuesday, February 13th; as they used to say in Pogo, "Friday the 13th falls on a Tuesday this month"), and we run our blogs continuously and irrepressibly.


Stan Lee on Heroes: Geek Factor Upped

Stan Lee on Heroes: Geek Factor Upped

The TV series Heroes is bound and determined to rope in not only the mainstream audience garnered by its intricate serial plotline(s), but the comics cognoscenti and related fan hobbyists whence its genre fiction originates. First Christopher Eccleston ("Dr. Who"), then George Takei ("Star Trek"), and now Stan Lee ("The Man") will make a cameo on the show, in a scene with character Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka, easily the best reason to watch the show for those of us who don’t particularly care for it).
