Over the last year or so I can say that I've developed a full-blown addiction to Tumblr. I'm not sure if it's the never-ending stream of new content or the potential for sharing, resharing and discussion, but the blogging platform is one of the best I've ever used.
While I've written about my problems with it before, I admit it's a very art-friendly site, and does wonders for finding new posts about comic books. Below I've included five of my favourite Tumblrs to follow; let me know yours in the comments!
Marvel Age of Comics - Part of my love for comics comes from the stories, pages and anecdotes from the past. If you've got an itch for Marvel history, this Tumblr is for you — within you'll find pages, notes and photos from the "Marvel Age of Comics," including work by Kirby, Ditko, Steranko and Romita.
DCWomenKickingAss - Sometimes I get a lot of flack for being an overly cynical guy, and I find that comes with the territory of being a critic. However, the writer behind DC Women Kicking Ass seems to step this up a further notch, but with a noted flair for defending her arguments. Some posts will leave you scratching your head and asking "Why?" but others will amaze you with insight and passion.
MarcusTo - Noted Toronto comic geek Marcus To is great to follow on Tumblr because he's either posting a lot of his art, or the art of his contemporaries. Definitely interesting if you're looking to get into the profession yourself, because you get a lot of process here.
Beatonna - Besides being a Canadian darling, Kate Beaton makes for an interesting case of a comics celebrity who seems very focused on what she does; she seems very different from most webcomic artists as she's relatively quiet. Her Tumblr is new, but it's a better place to find her images than her Twitter feed.
AdventureTime - If you're a fan of the wicked-awesome show (and now comic), give Adventure Time a follow. Here you'll find a spotlight on awesome fanworks, character sheets and news pertaining to the cartoon. Definitely worth a follow if you're curious about the show, as well; it'll give you a lot of information about the design process.
