Yep we made it all the way here! 2017 was a big year of change for The Beat and even more changes are coming in 2018. Hope it’s a happy and healthy one for you all.
A big thank you to all the writers and artists who made the Beat last year, and most of all thank you, reader, for coming here day after day. In an attention economy we don’t take it for granted, and we appreciate each and every one of you.
And for those of you who want to join in on the fun, The Beat will be hiring in 2018! We’re still firming up details but if you want to write news, essays, reviews, interviews or even listicles about comics and pop culture, shoot us an email at comicsbeat at gmail.com. Make sure you put “Beat Writing 2018” in the title of the email! First instruction and the most important!
2018 will be a year of massive changes in the comics industry and right here is going to be the front row.
