Six years ago, we launched ROBOT 6 rather quietly, with our favorite comics of 2008, a list that included Kramer's Ergot 7, Casanova, Bottomless Belly Button and Brubaker & Co.'s Captain America. Now, 16,752 posts later, the comic books, the comics industry and some of the bylines are different, but the blog marches on.
Some things never change, however: Each year we celebrate ROBOT 6's anniversary with a takeover of the Comic Book Resources homepage. Beginning in, oh, 30 minutes, we'll roll out exclusive previews and announcements, special features, and a lineup of interviews so extensive that the festivities will continue through Friday.
Thanks once again to CBR Executive Producer Jonah Weiland for handing us the keys for the next couple of days (and for bringing us on board in the first place), and to the creators, publishers, editors and publicity representatives for helping us to mark the occasion.
Thanks as well to the ROBOT 6 contributors and CBR staff for their hard work, and especially to our readers. Here’s to another year!
