Salt Lake City, UT, United States, 2008/05/11 - A new website about comic books, films, video games and television has launched - BigShinyRobot.com.
The surly robots in charge of the nerd-news site Big Shiny Robot have announced their existence to the world. They've collected the galaxy's best robotic-nerds to wax philosophical about all of the nerd issues and news of the day.
They've also conducted interviews with luminaries in the field of nerds, most recently Ryan Ottley, artist on the best selling comic book Invincible. They'll soon be posting interviews with Oni Press' Neal Shaffer and Slave Labor Graphics' Derek Hunter.
They offer weekly lists and recommendations of new DVD and comic-book releases, reviews of new films and any other news any discerning fan of nerd-dom might need. They also have regular polls, contests and a forum for professional and amateur comic book writers and artists.
For more information, be sure to regularly visit the site. Currently, top stories include a round table discussion of the recent film "Iron Man" and a Mother's Day special listing the top 10 mothers in nerd-media.
Contributors to the site are professionals in the comic and film industries and maintain secret robot identities for the site, offering an added layer of fun for readers and community for the website.
In addition to the above-listed features, they also have open submissions for independent comic books and films for review. It's the perfect way to publicize your Indy project!
Updated daily with fresh nerd news, analysis and reviews, Big Shiny Robot! Is sure to become a daily read for any self-respecting fan of films, comics, video games and nerd television.
