Found another one!   ;D
Here's a pretty fun webcomic (focused mostly on current comics so some wont be able to follow along all the time but it's still worth a look) called ComicCritics.com.
http://comiccritics.com/

HTMLComics is the subject of a recent post there that caught my attention enough to read all the past posts.
Here's a direct link for that update -

Thanks for the plugs for Cole's Comics, my blog on the work of Jack Cole (www.colescomics.blogspot.com). In addition to digging up lesser-known work by this master, my aim is to develop an informed critical framework for appreciating and understanding Jack Cole's body of work.

I'm looking for scans of the following books that (to the best of my knowledge) have Jack Cole work in them:

Western Killers #61, 62, #70 (Fox)

Plastic Man #40

Punch Comics #11 (Harry Chesler, 1944)

Circus #1 (Early Cole)

Military Comics 29, 30 (Pvt Dogtag)

The Illustrated Weekender V2#1 (Rucker Pub Co.) 1945 Same cover as Dynamic #11

Funny Pages (Centaur) V2 - #7, 8, 10, 11 / V3 - #2, 6, 9, 10 / V4 - #37 (second Mantoka story)


Keen Detective Funnies (Centaur) v2, - #2, 3

Keen Comics (Centaur) V2#3 (Nov. 1939) Saddle Sniffl by Cole

Star Comics (Centaur) #11 (first Jack Cole art 1 page), V2 - #1, 3, cover V2#1

Target 5-8 (Novelty, 1940)

Yankee Comics 4 (1942, Harry Chesler, Remington Morse “Ima Slooth”)

Boy's Life - various issues from 1937-40 (cartoons and illustrations by Cole)

I'm not sure if it's been mentioned here, but be sure to check out my buddy Frank Young's excellent blog dedicated to John Stanley (Little Lulu): www.stanleystories.blogspot.com

Also, a totally oddball GA comics blog that I've come to really enjoy is The Panelological Pantheon: panelologicalpantheon.blogspot.com/ .

You might want a look at this site. Paul is a real expert and enthusiast, encyclopedic almost.  He's also a very nice bloke.  Not much about golden age but anyone interested in the big world of comics should find something of interest.

http://www.paulgravett.com/

And, while I'm at it, here's pages about Dudley D. Watkins, the man who gave the world The Broons and Oor Wullie.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I and millions of others have for decades.

Apologies if anyone is concerned about the lack of American stuff on these links but I hope it again shows just how much else there is out there.

Your blog is much appreciated. Cole is one of the golden age greats along with Eisner and Kirby and did much to set the style and tone of the whole comic book medium. Unfornunately, due to his untimely death, his work was obscure and hard to find when I got into comics in the early 70s while there were loads of reprints of Kirby and Eisner's golden age work as well as articles about them and interviews with them in fanzines. They were alive and basking in appreciation of their work and still producing more while Jack Cole was long gone and his work neglected. Keep up the good work.
