DC super-heroes aren’t the only ones coming back from the dead these days. Yes, Eye on Comics has managed to claw and crawl out of the digital grave into which it disappeared over the past couple of weeks (thanks to a site hack and worm that messed things up royally). Thanks to a good friend with a much greater degree of technology expertise than myself, the site was resurrected. And then it died. It rose from the ashes again, only to succumb and died again. I’m continuing to struggle with problems, but it seems though there’s light at the end of that particularly problem-plagued tunnel.
While the site was down, there was a period of time when it seemed as though it might have been a lost cause. I considered that Eye on Comics may have reached an end (fittingly, just as it approached its third anniversary on Sept. 19). I pondered some questions. Did I want to relaunch with a new site? Join another? Or perhaps just call it quits when it comes to reviewing comics?
My frustrations with the outages and my elation at its various revivals provided me with the answers to those questions. I enjoy writing about comics, and I feel invested in the Eye on Comics brand I’ve developed over the past three years. I thank all my readers (vocal or otherwise) who check out my reviews, commentary and features, and I truly appreciate that audience. I hope you’ll all be patient with me over the next few days (or weeks, we’ll see) as I continue to contend with site problems, but rest assured, my plan is to keep my Eye out.
