Eliminating the Rankings feature and introducing the Top 5 Comic Countdown has worked wonders so far with the first two editions eclipsing the former feature by at least ten times and as high as twenty-five times. The reception to it has been fantastic and I want to thank everyone that has embraced the new offering.
Speaking of new offerings, last week I teased the new feature entitled Going Rogue and now is the time to reveal more. Going Rogue is going to be a new weekly series taking a look at various comic book villains in a vein very similar to the Character Spotlight, which will be returning as a monthly feature as well at a later time. It is a piece where I’ll mention a little bit about their history (though not as in-depth as the Character Spotlight), share some art, but mostly relate my personal thoughts and feelings about the characters. The monthly structure is as follows: 1st Week – Spider-Man Villain, 2nd Week – DC Villain, 3rd Week – Marvel Villain, 4th Week – Batman Villain. The first baddie that I’ll be shining the light on is none other than one of my favourite Spider-Man foes, Electro. Look for the series to debut next week!
