The Comics Grid

Anyone interested in finding out more about how comics work, and their place in the wider spheres of art and literature, should pop over to The Comics Grid, a collaborative blog of renowned comic scholars. They’ve published quite a few fascinating articles, on subjects as diverse as The Authority, Richard McGuire, Jason and Big Numbers, so there’s something for everyone. Now if only we can persuade them to get a few more articles on UK comics up there, they’ll be complete!

Academic Resources

The noted academic and expert on comics, Dr. Mel Gibson, has compiled an exhaustive list of academic resources for anyone studying comics as an academic discipline. Many thanks to Dr. Mel for allowing us to link to the list here.
