Blog@Newsarama Sets New Team
Following the departure of the vast bulk of its writers at the end of November in a move announced late last week, the comics news site Newsarama has pushed its blog site Blog@Newsarama through to the other side
, back up and running at what seems like full speed with a new group of writers. Various howdy-theres and goodbye-for-nows can be found in individual posts Sunday and Monday if you want to scroll back that far
The new point man seems to be Troy Brownfield. New members of the core team announced by Brownfield are J. Caleb Mozzocco, Michael C. Lorah, Lucas Siegel, Sarah Jaffe, Corey Henson, The Rev. OJ Flow, Vaneta Rogers, Barbara Hallock, Russ Burlingame, David Pepose, Jim Palmiotti, Troy Hickman, Dirk Manning and the ActionFigureInsider.com team. Company representatives that will contribute are Paul Levitz (DC Comics), Scott Allie (Dark Horse Comics), Chris Ryall (IDW Publishing), Chris Staros (Top Shelf), Christian Beranek (Kingdom Comics), Scott Licinia (Fangoria), Raven Gregory (Zenescope) and David Marks (Avatar).
As mentioned here last week, Matt Maxwell is keeping his Strangeways: The Thirsty
serialization at Blog@Newsarama for now, and Jeff Trexler should be staying on board as well. The departing writers are expected to launch a comics-coverage effort in early 2009.
