So what the heck is a Robot 6? You’ll have to ask Kevin Melrose, who came up with our cool new name. Although I’d be hard pressed to tell you what happened to Robots 1-5, I can share what I do know: Robot 6 is a new comics blog by many of the folks from the old Blog@Newsarama. In addition to Kevin and me, you’ll also find Lisa Fortuner, Tom Bondurant, Michael May, Melissa Krause, Stephanie Chan, Tim O’Shea and Chris Mautner here. You’ll also find a couple of people whose names you might recognize from the comics industry – Jennifer de Guzman from SLG Publishing and Larry Young of AiT/Planet Lar fame. And no doubt there will be some other folks popping up from time to time as well … what’s life without a few surprises?
Although full-scale posting doesn’t begin until next week, we can only say…welcome back, kids. We missed you.
