Jim Roeg writes a great blog over at Double Articulation. If you want an example of him being one of the smartest comics bloggers on the internet, I recommend his post on All Star Superman #1. Roeg has recently become a first time father, and that, in combination with other things, has caused him to neglect his own blog for a while -- he just posted again a few days ago after a four month hiatus, talking about why he has not blogged in a while. This is what he wrote:
As for Double Articulation? I don’t know. I’m not one to give up on things once I’ve started, but the days of painfully long and tortured pseudo-academic essays in which I project my fantasy life and romantic values onto contemporary comics and Marvel of the seventies are probably over—at least for the time being. If you’re still out there, dear readers, you can expect to see some changes around here. What those changes will entail, well... We’ll both find out soon.
So naturally I wrote him, and said if he is not sure about the future of his blog and if he thinks he may only be going at it irregularly, he should write for us over here. He agreed. I do not know when we will be getting our first Jim Roeg post -- there is a reason he backed off of his own blog. But I look forward to his contributions to the little project I am putting together here.
