Expanding and Contracting Galaxies -- Man, I was trying to get it clear in my head this morning how many distinct eras Comic Book Galaxy has had. We're weeks away from the site's ninth anniversary (we launched September 1, 2000), and recently Chris Allen and I have been reminiscing in email about all that's happened in that time (Chris wrote a little bit about it here). One thing we're thinking about doing it trying to, in some way, index as much of the old site as we can. Many of the original HTML files are long gone (I have always admitted to being a lousy webmaster, at least give me that much), but luckily a lot (not all, but a lot) of the site is preserved on Archive.org.

I've begun a preliminary project to archive some of the site in a more user-friendly manner, and one of the things I am trying to complete is a master list of everyone who has ever contributed to the site. If you wrote for Comic Book Galaxy in the past decade, but for some reason your name is not here, drop me a line, would you?

So far, here is the complete list of contributors as I can determine:

Christopher Allen
Derik A. Badman
Tom Beland
Alex Jay Berman
Michael T. Bradley
Tom Brevoort
Ian Brill
Nick Capetillo
Johanna Draper Carlson

Glad to be counted for my brief, unspectacular run as a CBG contributor. I'm still super grateful you'd let me write something in a place someone might read it way back before I had any kind of job doing this.

Hope you're doing well!

Alan -

I think I only contributed a few reviews before the site underwent a revision and you dropped the reviews. But I remeber them fondly.

Thanks to both of you!

And Adam, believe me, it's slow work, but we are trying to recompile all the old content. And your efforts (and reminder) are greatly appreciated!
