Eric is a long time follower of the Weekly Crisis and has dabbled in comic book blogging before. His first blog was The Comic Catalog, a weekly review blog much like my own. When the costs of weekly comics became too much, he made the switch to trades and started a new blog with more trade and editorial based content and it was known as At The Edge of the Omniverse. Eric will be writing random articles as well as heading up a new column called Trade Waiting, which will spotlight various reviews of the trades Eric has been picking up.
Matt is another long time follower and commenter on the Weekly Crisis and I became aware of his blogging abilities shortly after he started his own blog, Ampersand Comics, which his sounding board for all things comics. He will be primarily handling opinion and editorial pieces and, in fact, will be posting one later today in celebration of International Women's Day with a piece on strong women in comics.
Both Matt and Eric are experienced bloggers who's opinions I admired so much I invited them to combine their efforts me at the Weekly Crisis, they agreed and that's why I'm here telling you about it today.
One thing I'd like to make crystal clear is that this isn't going to change the focus of the blog. We are not becoming Newsarama or IGN Comics or CBR. This is still very much the same blog you've been reading all along and I will personally still be pumping out my previews, reviews, top 10's and moments of the week every week. Matt and Eric will simply be supplementing my posts with their own in an effort to give you more of what you already love about the blog.
In closing, I'd just like to have everyone join me in welcoming the newest members of the Weekly Crisis, Eric and Matt!
