We Started Our Own Gang

Okay, this is a little late. But Jon writes faster than I do, and I was sick yesterday. Que sera, sera.

As the more dedicated readers of the blog know, one of our cohorts in this movement is David Brothers, one of the founders of 4th Letter. We’ve collaborated on some pieces in the past, but now that David’s moved up in the world, we’ve decided to make things a little more official.

For those of you in the know, David’s now the senior comics editor for PopCultureShock, a great website that covers all aspects of pop culture. And he’s bringing some of us along with him. As some of you may have noticed, our own Jon Bernhardt just contributed a killer piece to PCS challenging the conventional wisdom about All-Star Batman. And Dave Uzumeri, the man who reads all the comics so you don’t have to (and is our resident crackpot 5th world visionary) is contributing to Picks and Pans. And that’s just the beginning.

Some of our regulars are going to be contributing to PCS on a regular basis, doing reviews, analysis, and multi-part articles. Jon and Dave will be writing more content for PCS, and will be joined by Chris in the near future. David’s going to turn the comic section of PCS into the envy of the comics blogosphere, with in depth takes and critical analysis of a broad swath of the industry that we all know and love.

Now you may be asking yourself: What about FBB? We’re going to continue to grow the movement, breaking heads, and taking names. We’re going to have some exclusive remixes of the articles that we post on PCS, and more articles and reviews than we know what to do with. We still have the best comics podcast on the Internet. And we have a lot of special things in store for the New York ComicCon. Stay tuned.
