Tomorrow marks one year of independent comicsblogging from Heidi MacDonald, whose name some of you will recognise as one of the editors of TRANSMETROPOLITAN. (Heidi was also the one, when working at DC Vertigo, who believed in a curious little project called Y THE LAST MAN from a little-known writer called Brian K Vaughan.) Heidi’s The Beat is one of the mainstays of modern comics news and commentary, not the least of its value being that Heidi’s worked all across the comics field and has a depth of industry and artform knowledge that is quite unique in the comicsblogging arena. I believe she commences celebrations over on www.comicsbeat.com in the morning.
