    Default The new look cbr.com

    Comic Book Resources has a new look, and a new address, www.cbr.com - and I can't say I like the front page at all. Far fewer links fit on the screen now. Less clicks to see the previews now though, as it's all on one page.

    So, what does everyone else think?

    I think the new logo makes CBR come off as a car rental service. As for the look of the front page... boring and generic with more focus on huge flashy click bait titles. Yay. I really hope they don't mess with the forums.

    It looks incredibly bland and generic, like a lot of the mobile sites. Less previews pop up on the main page. empty, vacant white background. Only three featured articles. Also, logo. Bland corporate crap with no imagination, like what happened with Rare.

    So yeah. The new look blows. So lifeless and generic.

    They've also dropped Comic Book Resources in general. I'm fearing the site might go full cross-media. Because that's what we need, another site that caters to every damn area of media.

    You do a search for CBR and you get things like Honda and Cord Blood and whatever. I'm not crazy about the new look, but I can live with it if only they would bring back it's real name Comic Book Resources. Just calling it CBR is weird.

    At least they should keep the logo.

    I had to check twice that this lifeless, boring and bland site was indeed Comic Book Resources. It hurts my eyes and everything is way too big. Who thought this was a good idea? This is a shitty design and if it isn't changed somehow I have to change my main comics news site, as this white background really stings in my eyes.

    I've never had to zoom out on a website before; the font is way too big. Agreed on the white, it's REALLY stark.

    I also am not a fan of how they took away the ledes in each of the articles.

    Hi all! We're currently working on issues with the redesign, adding more features and smoothing things out. Thank for your patience and feedback and I'll try to answer any questions that you may have.

    Yeah, the font is way too big now. Also agree that the page and logo looks much less interesting. I'm also finding the page is taking longer to load everything than usual. Also I'm really fed up with pages scrolling down into other pages on sites. The sidebar on articles is way too big too, squishing the article. The link to the forum in the articles seems to be gone too.

    You probably just looked at an article that didn't have a discussion thread.

    Looks like they rolled back the changes.

    The Original is the best. They can tweak it if they want, but I still like the basic format of the original.

    Hi Albert. Is it true that CBR will be doing away with all columns?
