Really bummed to discover that AOL pulled the plug on Comics Alliance. They were the only comics site I visited regularly. I appreciated their humorous reviews of comic themed movies and TV shows (Smallvillains was classic stuff). I had been a bit worried when Laura Hudson announced she was stepping down I was a bit worried. But Joe Hughes stepped in and really kept it going strong.
Their ability to jump between goofy fun and thoughtful commentary regarding comics and race/gender/identity/sexuality was pretty rare. They had a great team assembled, and I hope to see them all get paying replacement gigs soon. But I will miss finding their insights together in one place.
Thanks for the fun and commentary, Comics Alliance. You will be missed.
