Favorite Comic Related Blogs
« on: March 30, 2010, 01:14:59 AM »
This is carrying a thread over from another board; it seemed like a fun subject so I wanted to restart it.

http://www.the-isb.com/

A blog more or less dedicated to showing where "silly" meets "awesome", with a complete love of comics in all their glory.  About once a month the writer posts something that literally makes me laugh so hard I can't breathe; and there are often items only slightly less hilarious.  Not that there isn't the occasional serious post as well, which frequently show some very real insight into this wonderful thing we call comics.

A Walt Kelly tribute blog; lots of fun stuff there.

Anybody else have something?

I love these sites. Never appreciated how many people were interested in comics, especially GA comics.
I love Flashback Universe http://flashbackuniverse.blogspot.com/
Not a blog, but comic related sites:
The Golden Years http://goldenyears.goldenagegraphics.net/
Don Markstein's Toonopedia http://www.toonopedia.com/
Out of Print http://oopcomics.com/?p=28

I'm going to be lazy and repost my choices from the back-up forum ...

Quote
http://www.bigblogcomics.com/ - The Big Blog of Kids' Comics, I ran across this while looking for Supermouse stories a few weeks ago.

http://majormalcolmwheelernicholson.com/wordpress/ - A blog about The Major that's pretty insightful.

http://gotomars.free.fr/magician.html - The Magician from Mars - A site (mostly in French except for the scans) containing all the Magician stories from Amazing-Man Comics.

http://goldenageheroes.blogspot.com/ - This hasn't been updated in over a year, but it has almost 100 GA stories.  For anyone new to Golden Age superheroes looking for a decent starting point, this blog includes a nice sampling of most of the GA publishers.

 ... and a new one for my list ...

http://goldenagecomicbookstories.blogspot.com/ - Covers a lot more than just comics, including movie posters & artwork from books.  Lot of great stuff to look at.

I also enjoy "The Golden Years", and would add these other non-blog sites, Fury Comics & Pure Excitement Comics, as two more excellent "reprint" sites worth visiting.  All three are great ways for new Golden Age fans to get a good sampling of what Golden Age comics are all about.

I have to concur that goldenagecomicbookstories is one of the very best. A huge range of graphic delights and you'll spend hours and then some.

If you want to know more on Spanish language publications, with downloads galore available, you couldn't do much better than hasieran's blog at: http://elchicodelostejados.blogspot.com

Estupendo! Loads of additional links from there too.

The author is dedicated. Narrow focus but high quality. Jack Cole is one of the golden age greats and not so well reprinted as Kirby or Eisner.

Ernesto, I found the elchico site a couple of months ago and it's great. Downloaded and read Capitan Jupiter and others.  Lots more there to investigate.  If anyone is interested in Mexican superhero wrestlers and Fantomas, try:-

Also, if like me you are a Phantom Phan, you'll find lots of Indian Indrajal versions at:-
http://indrajal-comics.blogspot.com/
Lots of other good Indian comics there.

(Am I allowed to post directions to this site as it has lots of KFS material?)

Very interesting guys. Spanish and Indian comics are something I'd never have thought of looking at.

And, going a bit further out here, I mentioned in another place, comics from the Netherlands and Kapitein Rob in particular. These are text strips, so although I am used to them and think they are excellent, they may leave others cold.  To download some of these landscape beauties, go to:-
http://comicsworld.wordpress.com/category/rob/

Sorry to more ethical users of this site as elsewhere on the link there are lots of non p.d. publications.
Now, if only I could remember where I put the link for Eric de Noorman - then you realy will be in for a treat.

Ami_GFX,  huge thanks for the Cole link.  I love Jack Cole's stuff.  Who cares if it's narrow focus when the quality is so high.
