Two recent additions to the sidebar are blogs of guys who have recently returned to reading comics after too long of an absence:
Kurt, over at Return to Comics, has started reading comics again after having been out of the game for twenty-five years (except for a prief daliance with Image ca. 1993), and Zilla, Comics Junkie comes back into the fold after a 15-year hiatus.
Not sure if it means anything or not, but it's a good sign if some of the lost sheep can come back into the fold. In terms of variety of material available, this is probably the best that comics have ever been (if if that variety very often has a hard time finding a market). These guys have many years worth of good stuff to seek out.
