Totally meant to publish this yesterday at the height of its relevancy, but congratulations and happy 5th anniversary to Joe Gordon and the rest of our colleagues at the Forbidden Planet International Blog!!!
It’s hard for me to believe but today marks the fifth birthday of the Forbidden Planet blog. It’s a peculiar feeling because in one way it doesn’t really feel like it’s been five years since I posted that first blog item but on the other hand it also feels like we’ve been a part of the comics and SF scene for years. Good god – we have! Five years back as we were fading from winter into early spring we were waiting for the UK release of Sin City, rumours were rife Joss Whedon was about to announce he was doing a Wonder Woman film and Christopher Eccleston was the Doctor as the world’s longest running science fiction show returned triumphantly to our screens. Now it’s five years and two regeneration later and here we are; the blog has regenerated a bit itself, changing format and design and new cast members have walked into the console room to join us for our travels through time, space and sequential art (or comics, as normally call them) and add their very welcome voices.
The folks across the pond put a lot of time and energy into what was recently ranked by media company Cision high in the top 50 of all UK blogs. They really do a crackin good job and feature many an interesting morsel. I encourage you to check them out often. Personally, I’ve got them on my RSS toolbar.
Many returns, folks.
