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).
