About Me
  1. Who are you?

  2. My name is Randy Jackson, and I've been a comics fan since I was about five.

  3. What makes you an expert on comics?

  4. I would hardly call myself an expert. I have a certain amount of knowledge and I've spent a fair amount of time studying and researching the subjects of interest to me, but I don't think I really know anything more than any other fan boy.


  5. Why is your opinion any better than mine?
  6. My opinion is just that; my opinion. It is not better than yours, nor should you listen to me if you disagree with what I'm saying. I'm frequently wrong, and occasionally change my opinion given hindsight.

    Please feel free to disagree with me, particularly on the message board.


Questions about reviews
  1. What type of comics do you like?
  2. I like lots of different types of comics; I like some war comics, offbeat independent comics, comics about romance, etc. However, my main thrust is superhero comics, and that's mostly what I review.


  3. What don't you like?
  4. I'm not a fan of comics where mysticism is the primary focus and impetus of the comic. Nor am I a fan of Sword and Sorcery. I don't like comics like Dr. Strange, Conan, most of CrossGen's output, etc.

    I also dislike comics that are mindless slugfests as well, although those can be fun on occasion. Also, while I don't mind looking at scantily clad women, I'm tired of seeing that cliché, particularly in comics.



  5. How do you choose the comics you review?
  6. This is a pretty simple one; I review the comics I buy, with the exception of back issues and trade paperbacks. If I do come across a really good graphic novel, I'll review it as well.


  7. Why don't you review [title]?
  8. Because I don't buy said title. If various comics companies want me to review their comics, they should send me copies for that purpose (hint, hint).


  9. Will you review my comic?
  10. I'd be happy to. I am strongly in support of self-publishing, and I'll be happy to do a review for you. Just send me a copy.

    Please be aware, however, that I will be honest about my feelings, so if you don't want to know, don't ask.



  11. Could you explain your content ratings?
  12. Certainly. Here's the breakdown:

    • Kid Friendly - This is a comic that I would have no problems giving to someone ten years of age or younger.
    • Adult Themes - This is a comic that I would have reservations giving to a younger child. Usually for reasons of extreme violence, adult language, or nudity.
    • Mature Readers - This is a comic that should be reserved for adults only. Usually it revolves around themes of a highly sexual manner, or depicts truly extreme violence, or both.


    Please be aware, however, that these guidelines are merely my suggestions. I believe that it's up to parents to decide what content is or is not appropriate for their children.



Content
  1. Do you take outside solicitations?
  2. Currently, I'm looking for more people to add content to the site. Contact me with details of what you want to do.


  3. I want to be an editor for your site. How do I go about that?
  4. I am definitely looking for editors to help carry the load around here. There isn't any pay, but you could gain some valuable experience. Contact me with details of who you are, what experience you have, etc. and we'll see what we can do.



Advertising
  1. Do you take advertising?
  2. Not currently, but this may change. Contact me for more information.


  3. What type of advertising might you accept?
  4. I might accept banner ads with animated gifs, either along the top of the screen or button banners in the menu sections. Text ads are also acceptable.

    I will not take pop-ups, pop-unders, flash or java ads.
