The Nitpicker Is No More! Long Live The Dissector!
Dissect: 2. to analyze and interpret minutely.
The Nitpicker doesn't exist anymore, but as you can see, it's not really gone, just renamed and with a new look. Now it's called The Dissector, and the best thing about the new look is that snazzy logo designed by my lovely and talented friend Nysie. Thank you Nysie, you now have the honorary rank of Admiral in the newly renamed Honorary Dissector Scout Corps... so it's doubly honorary...
The layout and colors haven't changed, I just made the central column wider so there's more text per line. Of course, anything named after The Nitpicker will have its named changed to reflect the new name. If you are coming in through the old address, you'll see that it auto-redirects you to the new site. I don't know what'll happen with feed subscriptions, but since I made a post on the old address that includes the link, you'll know to update your subscriptions accordingly.
Why the change? Well, almost accidentally I learned of the existence of Phil Farrand, the Nitpicker's Guild, and Nitcentral. Phil and his band have been doing what I do for comics, but TV shows and movies, mostly science fiction. He started in 1993 with Star Trek TNG, and the Guild has been finding plotholes and mistakes in shows ranging from Monthy Pithon to Dragon Ball.
I didn't feel it was right of me to use the name I did when these guys had started more than a decade before I did, and I'm in no way associated with them. Furthermore, the image I was using as a logo didn't look very professional, and it only featured a Marvel character, when this column is about any and all comics I get my hands on.
Don't fear, the quality won't decline, I will in fact strive to perfect my craft everyday. Thanks for reading.
