10 best graphic novel and comic book blogs
this from David Seidman at blogs.com
David Seidman has been in the graphic-novel and comic-book business since the early 1990s. Among other things, he's been a graphic novel and comic book writer, an editor of comics and graphic novels, an essayist on the graphic-novel industry for the book-industry Bible Publishers Weekly and other publications. He's also been a teacher of writing comics and graphic novels, and a publicist for NBM Publishing, Papercutz, and other graphic-novel houses. (F.Y.I., NBM is starting its own blog, by the company's writers and artists!) And finally, he's been the host of a monthly networking dinner for Los Angeles' comic-book and graphic-novel industry. His take on this list: "These comics-related blogs are fun to read and strikingly informative. Check them often, and you'll be as well-informed as almost any comics insider."

Top 10 film blogs
This from Dina Gachmanat blogs.com
Dina Gachman pens the blog Bureaucracy For Breakfast, the continuing saga of one girl's plight with unemployment. The blog is a comedic take on a not-so-funny subject, and she hopes it will make people laugh, not cry.
Great insights into the trials, tribulations, blood sweat and tears that go into being an indie filmmaker. Jacques Thelemaque is a force in the LA indie scene, so his blog is current and informative.
Go-to blog written for and by film lovers. I always go here to get the non-Hollywood perspective of upcoming films and new releases. Great writing.
This is pretty much the reigning blog for in the moment Hollywood news. Nikki Finke is known for getting the scoop eerily early, before anyone else. Her catchphrase is “toldja!” And she’s usually right.
Films Gone Wild is a fun new blog on FilmThreat.com that’s getting a lot of attention. Reviews, festival news and interviews.
Great magazine, great blog. This is a good blog for finding out about indie filmmakers, both new and established; about festivals and everything happening on the festival circuit, and they do a good job of compiling articles from other sources all in one place.
A bit more highbrow but this has some interesting posts about avant-garde film as well as Hollywood blockbusters.
Great blog for writers. Vet screenwriter John August answers questions and rants about screenwriting and filmmaking. Very informative.
A good one for both film and politics.
Another Hollywood-centric blog. Written by Anne Thompson and posted on IndieWire.com (a great site in itself), this is a great mix of Hollywood and indie news.
Thorough, intelligent informative blog by veteran indie producer Ted Hope. This looks at the future of filmmaking and film distribution, and is written by a passionate filmmaker and film lover.
