All throughout June, I’ll spotlight a different web site about comic books.. Like with the month of independent comics, the month of LGBT comics and last month’s month of webcomics, I figure I will let you comic book site/blog owners out there suggest your comic book web site (or blog) for spotlight during this month. So if you want me to spotlight your comic book site, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Today we look at Duy Tano’s Comics Cube, a multi-faceted comic book blog, where Tano writes reviews, spotlights, essays and features on a variety of different types of comics.
Tano provides a good deal of variety of subjects on his site. One of my favorites is a bit he calls “Reclaiming History,” where he does in-depth examinations into the careers of various classic comic book creators, including Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. You can read the archive of creators featured so far here.
Tano had an interesting take on the recent DC Comics News. First he posted his reaction and then solicited the reactions of five disparate people in a series of essays about DC’s news. One of the essayists was our own Pol Rua! Check out Pol’s piece here
Tano has all sorts of different columns and features on his site. One of his strongest features was when he annotated Asterios Polyp. You can check that out here (five parts!).
All in all, Tano has created a sizable collection of interesting reviews and features on his site. If you’re interested, you can check out his site here.
