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



Comic Book Resources was founded by Jonah Weiland in 1996 as a development of the Kingdom Come Message Board, a message forum that Weiland had created to discuss DC Comics's then-new miniseries of the same name. Described by the University of Buffalo's research library as "the premiere comics-related site on the Web"[1] this news site has become the favored research and news site on comics and graphic novels by American Libraries and Universities.[2]

In addition to having an active message board, Comic Book Resources also has weekly columns written by various writers in the comics industry. Writers who have written or are currently writing columns for Comic Book Resources include Warren Ellis, Erik Larsen, Steven Grant, Robert Kirkman, Gail Simone, Rich Johnston, Scott Shaw, Rob Worley, Keith Giffen and Mark Millar, among others. Other columns are published by comic book historians and critics like George Khoury and Timothy Callahan (who wrote Grant Morrison: The Early Years). There are also specialised columns like Comic Book Legends Revealed, which has recently been collected into a book Was Superman a Spy? (ISBN 0452295327).

Comic Book Idol

Comic Book Idol, also known as CBI, is an amateur comic book art competition created and hosted by award-winning comic writer J. Torres, and sponsored by Comic Book Resources and its participating advertisers. Deriving the idea from the singing contest American Idol, CBI is a five-week and five-round competition in which each contestant is asked to draw a script provided by guest judges in a period of one week. These invited comic book professionals will then comment on the artists’ work in each round. Fans will then determine which contestants will move on to subsequent rounds by voting in a weekly poll.[3]

A number of winners and runners-up have gone on to work professionally in the comics industry:


  • 1999: Won the "Favourite Comics-Related Website (professional)" Eagle Award
  • 2000: Won the "Favourite Comics-Related Website (professional)" Eagle Award

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
