CBE is no longer accepting new members. Please enjoy the archived links to our existing member sites. The ranking algorithm has been adjusted slightly now that we are in archive mode to offer a new perspective -- rankings based on daily incoming links instead of overall daily averages. Existing members will notice this has really shaken things up in the rankings.
The Comic Blog Elite toplist WAS open to all BLOGS focused on the discussion of comics -– print comics, web comics, mainstream comics, indie comics, old comics, new comics, a specific title or creator, comic-creating techniques, or simply comic news and reviews. It WAS 100% FREE!
Sites on this toplist fall into one of the following categories:
Comics Culture -- Our broadest category, Comics Culture blogs cover everything from industry news to geek lifestyles, without necessarily focusing specifically on comic book stories or characters.
News & Reviews -- These are the sites where the fanboys go to learn what's going on with their favorite characters, creators, and publishers. While there may be some overlap into comic book culture, these sites will focus more heavily on the comic stories.
Megasites -- Magazine-style websites caught on to the concept of blogging some time ago, so it would be silly to ignore their contribution to the current comic blogosphere. Still, when a blog is just one small section in a larger, well-financed portal with a forum, multiple columns, and several contributors, we owe it to the little guy with the self-started free-web blog to stick it in its own special category.
Creator Sites -- This includes any site run by or on behalf of a comic creator (writers, artists, creator collectives) or his/her/their works. Official sites for specific titles would also fall under this category.
Rants & Nonsense -- Not everyone who blogs about comics is interested in actually reviewing current comics, analyzing the socioeconomic impact of comic books on our culture, or anything else remotely high minded. Sometimes, comic bloggers just want to have fun or cut loose with some unfiltered brain droppings. You'll find these sites under this category.
It was fun while it lasted, and what's left of it is a snapshot of only a small segment of a much larger comic and pop culture web community. YOUR community. Love it. Live it.
