Questions about reviews
My name is Randy Jackson, and I've been a comics fan since I was about five.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Certainly. Here's the breakdown:

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.
