Comics blogs proliferate at media sites

I guess all the superhero movies have gotten old media paying attention to comics. The Wall Street Journal has run an astounding amount of articles on them lately for example. Blogs at major media sites specifically on comics are popping up like superhero movies too.

I've linked to the new Washington Post Comic Riffs, Zadzooks at the Washington Times and Examiner blogs recently, but there's some other new ones popping up, like the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex which just celebrated a birthday - Hero Complex: The first month, Aug 12 2008.

One I just found today is MTV's Splash Page - of which they claim, "You've turned the page to the place where panels and popcorn meet. From coverage of comic-inspired flicks to that buzzed-about graphic novel that's being primed for the big-screen, you'll find it all here at MTV's Splash Page. Check throughout the day for breaking news, exclusive chats with Hollywood stars and comic legends, and first looks at the blockbusters of tomorrow."

Steve Duin's blog at the Oregonian has been going a while, but is one of the best.
