About Us/Meet The Team

The team at MediaByte has existed for over 4 years. Originally called “Comic Drops” and eventually “The Drop News”, we had the privilege to bring the latest news in the world of entertainment to 1.5 million unique readers over the course of 2016. At the end of the year we decided to discontinue our our coverage for multiple reasons. Since then, we’ve noticed an increase of click bait to get clicks/readers, all of which we as a team would like to help put an end to.


We are determined to bring you clear and concise updates on your favorite characters ranging from Marvel, DC, Star Wars and so many others through quick and easy news pieces, podcasts, and other forms of digital media. No click bait. No gimmicks. This site is run by fans, *for* fans who are looking for a new way to keep themselves in the loop. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer here at MediaByte!
