On the note of reviews... what are some places around the net that you think provide in-depth reviews for works? Do you mean an AVclub for comics?

Just being a jerk :-)

 actually the AV club is one of the best comic review sites. they treat all genres as equal and seem to give some thought past the usual hit and run reviews that have permeated over the last few years

 what Tom was talking about, and I concur, was the desire for more quality control and more long-term exploration. there is a great deal of nerd tantrums and hit and run reviews.  a lot of people pitching what they would do with the book other than really exploring the hard work of the creators working on the book right now.

 There is also a seedy undercurrent of websites using their review section for revenge over things that have happened behind-the-scenes. they didn’t get the exclusive announcement so they take it out on the reviews. pretty gross

 that kind of nonsense. I know it happens in music and film and theater as well but I don’t work in music so I don’t care. I care about comics :-)

I know some reviewers get upset when they are reviewed and often yell at me about how they are not getting paid and it’s not worth their time to do more than a hit-and-run… well most comic creators do their work without getting paid and they give it all they have.

 but may I on the other hand express my concern that so many writers working for websites don’t get paid when they produce content that produces hits or clicks which produces ad revenue for that website.  

some writers for a very prominent, very well-known pop-culture website confessed to me that they don’t get paid and I was shocked. it’s one thing if you own the website and are trying to build something but to produce content, on a regular basis, for a profitable organization… you should be getting paid.

 if they think enough of your work to publish it they should think enough of it to pay you.
