So That's Where They've Come From

As regular readers know, I've annotated a bunch of DC's past events - my sites are in the sidebar over on the left as well as in the Links page on the menu bar up top. I run Google Analytics on them just out of curiosity and, over the last couple of years, the numbers of visitors has ticked over nicely.

Checking my monthly stats a couple of hours ago, however, I noticed that all of them had a real big spike around the 31st August / 1st September - the Annotated DC Project (which I really should update soon) jumped by 60% over those two days.

So I did some digging and guess who linked to my sites?

The New York fricking Times! Specifically this article by Dave Itzkoff where he talks (no surprise) about the DC reboot and says:
"The process of restarting a long-running narrative at Page 1 — known in industry parlance, and with growing derision, as a reboot — is nothing new to comics: in the 1980s DC dismantled its narrative architecture in the venerated mini-series “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” and has sought to recapture its anything-could-happen spirit in story lines with titles like “Infinite Crisis” and “Final Crisis.”"
and each of those links go to my sites of annotations!

How cool is that?


  1. How cool is that? Pretty flippin' cool!!!!

  2. Ahh, if only I'd had the forethought to make some money off these sites... which would then be taken from me in lawsuits by DC...

    I'll stick with doing it for fun, I think.
