The Beat’s beat is comic books — and it’s been covering it uncommonly well for years. Editor Heidi MacDonald and her intrepid staff report on everything from DC and Marvel’s mass-market products to experimental small-press stuff. Both the quality and quantity of their work make the site a must-read for anyone interested in the art and business of graphic storytelling. It’s the Deadline Hollywood of its field.
From TIME’s annual tribute to the best in blogging covers everything from the economics of gadgets to the Civil War to Kate Middleton’s fashions.
the site was a collaborative effort design production between Smartbomb, Modiv and Heidi MacDonald (founder of The Beat).
All of us are still in shock because of the massive earthquake and tsunami that has struck the Tohoku area, Japan on 11 March. The victims in Japan are still facing the dangers of radiation after the series of explosions at the Japanese nuclear power plant, and also aftershocks. There are many Japanese who came to NY to fulfill their dreams; as artists, designers, chefs, entrepreneurs, or businessmen. Our people have been the suffering in Japan. Living and working far away from home, we may find it difficult to find a way to support the country of Japan. However, we came to NY for a reason.. So I realized that although we are separated by a great distance, there are many things we can do from here.. We should express our love and support with our expertise that we have learned here to help Japan…
