It's not a blog but any Phantom Phan who hasn't found it yet should have a look at:-

http://www.schapter.org/wiki/Main_Page

There's a piece on Joan Boix, who has illustrated  some very good new Phantom stories.  I like his stuff and have a couple of examples of his work in Spanish comics.

On the subject of Spanish comics and my mentioning of El Guerrero del Antifaz, that title and many more great old Spanish titles can be downloaded at:-

Covered is a blog where contemporary artists riff on other artists' comic covers, often taking them in bizarre directions.  There are some of Golden Age covers from the comics we have, of which my favorite is this one.

Just stumpled across this one today:

http://hqquadrinhos.blogspot.com

It has some nice original artwork (this alone makes the blog worth checking-out) to go along with some nicely done profiles of Golden Age characters.  While its focus is (I assume) superheroes published in Brasil, you can find characters like The Clock, Fire-Man & Stardust spotlighted there, as well.

Nice one, bchat.  I love these insights into what to me are obscure heroes. And look at the amont of stuff on there. Hours of exciting reading.   It brings up that subject again, - just what is obscure?  These comics, do Brasil, won't be unfamiliar to comics fans there but to me they are an exciting find.  Same goes for some of you who perhaps haven't encountered old British heroes or Spanish, French, Italian masked men.  Mind you, lots of those are very obscure nowadays in their own countries.  Has anyone had a look at the superheroes being produced in India now, or in recent years?  Many are in Hindi? and that's impossible for me, whereas, I can get the basic idea in Portuguese.  Still very interesting, though.

Here's a blog which is relatively new, being less than a year old, and which simply has downloadable issue of DCs circa seventies 100 Page Giants. The Old Warrior, who owns the Blog started out presenting the various Giants in chronological order and has kept things in publication order. Originally the "100 Page Super Spectaculars" were entirely collections of reprints, and contained some of the earliest reprints of golden age Quality material that some of us probably first encountered. A few years later, when the price of comic books increased once again, the 100 page format spread to some of DC's other titles and it was possible to pick up an issue of "Detective Comics," for example and read a brand new Batman story as well as a golden age Batman classic, a silver age Batman story, perhaps even a golden age Robin reprint from "Star Spangled Comics" or a golden age Alfred six-pager, a Kid Eternity or Doll Man story, a Manhunters of the World story, and an early Martian Manhunter story which is quite a buy for sixty cents. Often there was no apparent rhyme of reason for what the 100 Page Giant format reprinted, but The Old Warrior has provided a table of contents for issue issue, so you don't find yourself uploading issue blindly and can isolate things you would like to read.

I removed the URL of the previous blog.  We try not to link to sites that just outright post issues still in copyright.

A lot of interesting blogs for one to follow. Thanks for the links.

I work on a video blog of my own that covers Comics History through film and television.

If that's something that interests you please have a look.

I find this list quite interesting, dinsorze.
All but one entry here is a newspaper comic strip, which I find completely different from a comic book. So many people simply lump them together as one medium, whereas I treat them as totally separate and distinct. I realize that I'm a definite minority in this attitude.

Just musing.

And, no, I imagine that all of these "comics" are copyrighted and in not in the Public Domain. So they will not be available here.

I don't know how this one escaped my attention with me being a Jack Kirby fan since childhood.

I found it looking at the links of this blog which is also quite good and dedicated to funny animals and other humor comics.

The Internet archive hosts some Super-hero-related serials and some comics, too--westerns mostly.

http://www.archive.org

Just poke around the search function awhile.  Lots of old B westerns, too.

I'll definitely check out some of those blogs.  I need something MORE to do on my computer. LOL.
