If you just opened this page for the first time this week, scroll down and say "HI!" to our newest Savage Critic, Graeme McMillan. I've long been a fan of Graeme's sensahumor, and his writing style, so it was a no-brainer to offer him a shot at Savaging when he closed down his Fanboy Rampage. Doing a blog is damn damn hard, and I say that as someone who is happy to post once in most weeks. I thought that if we brought Graeme in, then it would matter less if any of the three of us dropped a week -- theoretically the other 2 will "cover". We'll see how it actually works in practice, though. Anyway, this is meant to be fun for all of us, and I've told Graeme that the minute it becomes remotely like work he has to stop.
I've also told him he doesn't have to write in Savage Critic form or scale if he doesn't want to, but it looks like it was a decent fit in week 1. We'll all see together how it evolves.
And if we're lucky, he'll OCCASIONALLY link us to things that the other daily bloggers don't see, or dare to tread (*I'm* not setting eyes on the John Byrne board, thanks!)
Because something had to eventually cover up Graeme's first post (I think that's why Lester didn't post, trying not to upstage him with his red text maybe?), here's this week's list of what is meant to arrive at Comix Experience. Not everything WILL arrive, of course, rassen-frassen. Your local comic shop may vary.
