Community Star: Silkcuts

1/21/11: Silkcuts flies under the radar to bring you awesomeness.

Today's edition of Community Star (Starlet if you're a lady. See? We're moving forward!) brings us a person I've had under the microscope for quite some time. He's one of the top reviewers on ComicVine, a lover of comic books that are a bit more indy, a great writer, and a fellow Canadian. Let's welcome Silkcuts into the ComicVine Community Star-of-Fame!

== TEASER ==

Lists? Lists!

  • Silkcuts has a number of great lists on the site, but there's a couple that really catch my eye. The first one is Silkcuts' Top 10 Canadian artists. There's quite a few I had no idea came from the land up north! 
  • That's a lot of awesome Canadians! How about ten more? But this time, it's Silkcuts' Top 10 Canadian Writers!
 

Blog-O-Sphere!

 Francis Manapul drew a picture of Death. These are things Silkcuts probably enjoys.
 

Wiki-Power!

  • Silkcuts has been great at the wiki section with some of the things he's a bit more passionate about.He has roughly 1,800 points on the John Constantine page, 1,700 points on the Hellblazer volume page, 1,600 on the Vertigo page, and 1,500 points on the From Hell page. 
  • Above all though, Silkcuts has put a lot of work into the page about his hometown, Toronto, Ontario (Canada). He's racked up almost 2,800 points on there, including certain landmarks that appear in comic books.
 

Prince of Reviews!

  • If you go to the Reviews section of the site and look at the Top Reviewers, you see people who have dedicated a lot of their time to writing for the site. It's not always about quantity though, it's about quality, and Silkcuts reviews have it.
  • I'm a huge fan of Scott McCloud, who has written a few books on the medium of comics and how everything comes together. Check out Silkcuts review of McCloud's book Understanding Comics. He really breaks down the book and tells you everything you need to know. 
  • Hellblazer #275 recently came out. Silkcuts loves this book and gave the issue a great review. Check it out if you're interested in Vertigo... or just good comics.
  • Batman: The Black Casebook is a collection of old Batman stories Grant Morrison took ideas from to tie in to Batman R.I.P. Check out Silkcuts' stellar review of the book. 
 
There you have it! Another week, another awesome ComicVine user. Congratulations to Silkcuts for doing some great writing on the site! See you guys next week!

Edited by Silkcuts

First off I would like to Thank IE for all the nice things he wrote about me.  Its been a fun ride of a little under a year, eh IE?
 
I really didn't accept it and I am grateful for those who showed interest in what I have done to date.  It is my love for the medium that drives me to contribute what I have so far and I hope you all get inspired to see comics as more then just pictures and words.  Thanks again everyone who showed any interest in what I had to say. 
 
Cheers!

Congratulations indeed Silkcuts. Your breakdown of GM's run on Batman was just what I needed to get to grips with it.

 Cool to know.

Dude, I had to edit the last post, due to Flood block.  But I have to personally thank you for inspiring me to be a better reviewer.  Your creative criticism was taken to heart and I owe you thanks because you gave me the template on how to review well.  When Wildstorm closed, it broke my heart because I wanted to co-review something with you.  May be later in life, but in honest man.  Thanks for helping me be a better reviewer.

Thank you so much! Sorry I haven't been chatting all that much in the last little bit.  I guess I didn't realized I was working to get this and I didn't know it.  Thanks for all the kind words over the last year, your friendship is cherished.  ^_^

I have to thank to especially.  You recommended my first review.  Most times you tend to recommend them. You have been on this ride with me the longest and I thank you publicly, because I am grateful.  Thanks for your friendship over he last year.
