    Given that there are not any articlesworth reading any longer, giving up on the front page is not really hard.
    Just reminiscing about the former great work makes me sad.

    What political spin has their been on the articles?

    You complain about it being "progressive" which probably means I wouldn't be bothered by the spin - and would therefore be less likely to notice it - but I really haven't noticed any political spin here. Over in Bleeding Cool, yeah, but not here.

    Thumbs up Enough with the Ridiculous Lists - Tiresome and Getting Out of Hand

    Aside from Brian Cronin, when is CBR going to get actual comics journalism again and get rid of the damn lists? This site used to have great news, columns, articles, and features now its nothing but an endless site of clickbait lists. 15 of this, 7-8 of that its just stupid.

    CBR you have hit a NEW LOW with lists like:

    "Doing IT: 15 Times Someone Doinked A Clown (In Comics)",
    "15 Star Wars Character Cosplays That Shouldn’t Be Titillating (But Totally Are)"
    "Up Your Arsenal: The 15 Most Gratifying Bedroom Weapons"

    WTH? Is this site run by junior high boys? CBR you have really cheapened yourself with the nonstop lowest common denominator lists you keep pumping out.

    I used to visit this site multiple times a day, now I hardly visit at all only checking in to see if anything has changed. Please consider going back to putting out some good content and enough with the lists already!

    Brian Cronin & comic book related lists are great.

    As for the rest, I don't know. No comment for now, I don't go to the full news section as much as others.
    Thank you America for voting for change.

    I just visited the front page for the first time in months, and yeah, I'm not white listing it. I don't care, there's nothing on there I want to read anyway. But yeah, it's full of garbage ads and everything is a clickbait list that only exists to generate revenue. A shame, CBR used to be great, now it's total crap.

    But but but... the X-Men has always been a super progressive comic. Are you a conservative that loves the gay/minority allegory comic?

    Well, news agencies don't churn out these types of articles for no reason. These gross sexual articles must appeal to someone.

    This is what you get with the new ownership. This is the content they want, all they want are clicks to get ad revenue. There is no staff anymore to produce the kind of articles you want and it doesn't seem like the new ownership is willing to financially support such a staff. What you see is what you're going to get for the forseeable future until the ad revenue goes away and they either try a new format or look to sell it off.

    I used to go to CBR for the comic news and the the forums for discussions.
    Now I go to Community far more than the News pages. Shouldn't even call them News page.
    There came a time when the name edhopper died! The final moment came with the fatal release of indescribable power--which tore every post that bore the name edhopper asunder--split it linto a new identity, and filled CBR with the blinding death flash of it's destruction! In the end there was a new user name, spinning slow and barren, clean of all that had gone before, adrift in the fading sounds of binary thunder...THEN----THERE WAS KIRBY101

    Still love the Dylan references hidden in the article names. Also love the column that takes on longtime rumors and 'snopes' them. I agree the front page is pretty listicle heavy lately.

    To anyone who hates lists, you can do what I do:

    I use the browser plugin and mobile app called Feedly. This lets you subscribe to news feeds from various sites - and mark as read/save for later and stuff.

    In the case of CBR, I subscribe to the "news" and "columns" feeds - and I never even see these lists.

    On the bright side, I never have to look at the CBR front page.

    How is one supposed to access the forum when you have the main page blocked off by a pop up screen wanting money?
    The Gypsies had no home. The Doors had no bass.

    Does our reality determine our fiction or does our fiction determine our reality?

    Whenever the question comes up about who some mysterious person is or who is behind something the answer will always be Frank Stallone.

    How can you say to to articles like "Dawn Of Dankness: 15 Savage Batman Vs Superman Memes"? If that's not an indepth respectable comicbook article I don't know what is.
