Comic Book Resources, also known as CBR, is a website dedicated to the coverage of comic book-related news and discussion.

History

Comic Book Resources was founded by Jonah Weiland in 1995 as a development of the Kingdom Come Message Board, a message forum that Weiland created to discuss DC Comics's then-new mini-series of the same name.

Comic Book Resources features weekly columns written by industry professionals that have included George Khoury and Timothy Callahan.

Comic Book Idol

Comic Book Idol, also known as CBI, is an amateur comic-book art competition created and hosted by comics writer J. Torres, and sponsored by Comic Book Resources and its participating advertisers. Inspired by the singing contest American Idol, CBI is a five-week and five-round competition in which each contestant is given one week to draw a script provided by guest judges. These invited comic-book professionals comment on the artists' work in each round. The contestants to move on to subsequent rounds are selected by fans who vote in a weekly poll.[1]

Reception

The University at Buffalo's research library described Comic Book Resources as "the premiere comics-related site on the Web".[10]

Comics writer Mark Millar has stated that he reads the site every morning after reading the Financial Times.[11]
