Being David Norman

Being David Norman


When I started this sporadic blog back in January 2005, comic book bloggers preferred unusual names for their blogs instead of using their actual names (in contrast to today when the advice is to own your own domain name so that you can control your brand). I’m not sure why this was, but it made sense when everyone else was…

Pause for reflection

Pausing For Reflection


I’m taking a moment in my daily blogging schedule to step back from my goal (of discussing all the various entertainments I’ve consumed and getting up to date on them) and think about my blogging, so feel free to ignore this self-indulgence on my part. I’m getting close to aim of being able to talk about comic books and films…

Halfway Point

Halfway Point


I know this is a bit self-indulgent, but six months of almost daily blogging is something worth marking. With the exception of those few days in April, I’ve posted every day this year, a better history than the previous five years (yes, I’ve been blogging, rather badly, for five years). In fact, there are more entries for this year already…

Where to find me on the internet

Where To Find Me On The Internet


I suppose you could consider it ironic for a chap who hasn’t been blogging for five months to talk about the other places you won’t find him regularly online, but I’m sure I don’t see it that way … Clandestine Critic – Obviously. This is my main outlet for recording my brain. It’s intended as a record of my pop-culture…

New Year's Blogging Resolution

New Year’s Resolution


Admit it – you thought I wouldn’t come back. Hell, even I thought I wouldn’t. I have an unofficial tradition of posting regularly for a spell, before something breaks the run and I stop blogging for a few months (with no explanation). I’m sure that’s a familiar pattern around the internet. The reasons are boring and I’ve probably written about…

I Don’t Have A Great Comic Collection. Apparently


Tom Spurgeon wrote a post on Sunday called The 50 Things That Every Comics Collection Truly Needs. In it, he lists and explains his choices. Now, I didn’t originally read the post – instead, I read other people’s reactions to it, in a meme kinda way. But, when I did, I was taken aback at the list, mainly because I…

Links: New Blogs


Undecided on whether to add to the blogroll or not, I shall make use of this post to have a record of some interesting blogs that have appeared in the last couple of weeks. Greatest Movie Deaths of All Time – featuring video clips of carefully selected film deaths. Not much in the way of commentary, but you have to…

Somebody Read My Blog


Rather than reviewing stuff, as I usually do, I have to comment on a comment. Recently, I posted an old review of mine for a film called Londinium. Today, I was notified of a comment left about that post. It said: Hey man, thanks for taking the time to bash my work. Love your site as well. All’s good. Live…

Running On Empty


I got nothing today. I feel bad about it. I didn’t know what to write about. I think it’s because I’m more a reviewer than anything else. I love talking about things I have seen or read; it’s something I’ve always done. When I was younger, I wanted to be Barry Norman (no relation) doing the Film programme on BBC1.…

Good Blog Comes Good


Good news, everyone! Comics Should Be Good is now part of the CBR family. Congratulations to the chaps at CSBG; they are one of the most interesting, consistent and genial blogs around, especially as they are a large group blog. I started reading them when the prolific Greg Burgas started writing for them (have you seen how much he writes…
