    I will recommend that if you like I site, and their ads aren't overbearing, click those ads when you visit. You don't have to stay on that site, or engage, but simply clicking on them helps those sites.
    Make sure to google Beat comics, else you get this weird rock group.
    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.

    I forgot about the Beat .....doesn't Heidi (can't remember the last name) work there? She used to be here on CBR IIRC.

    Yeah, Heidi MacDonald runs https://www.comicsbeat.com/

    She’s one of the good ones. It’s a good site that deserves support.

    Thanks for the link. I will have to just make it a habit to visit that site more often.

    Problem is, those types of articles are all over the place on AOL.

    Newsarama died to me when they got rid of the message boards. To me, messageboards are way better than most forms of modern social media because they create actual communities rather than merely the sense of community. To me you have way more interesting conversations in messageboards then on twitter or facebook. Message boards are only going away because someone hasn't figured out a way to monetize them efficiently.
