I've read comics on and off for most of my life and have recently started again with titles such as Saga, Rat Queens, Trees, Copperhead and more. I've been trying to find blogs, sites and YouTube channels for reviews, articles and discussions but am having trouble finding ones that I like. Many of them seem to focus on Supers, which has never been my main interest.
You could rely on aggregators or just go to publisher sites, such as Dark Horse, Top Shelf, Fantagraphics, First Second, etc., who frequently post or link you to interviews with or essays by the creators themselves. It cuts out the middle man. Of course, if it's the publisher's site then it will spin everything positively but the point is, you already know that going in. You don't have to parse a reviewer's rhetoric to figure out their biases, if any. You can get right to the title's premise and probably examples of the art.
