About

This blog is about early comics. More precisely: anything between the invention of picture stories in late antiquity (Romano-Christian codexes in particular) and circa 1930, when various titles began that are still popular today, like Tintin, Mickey Mouse, Popeye, Tarzan…

This blog is an offshoot from my early comics website, which I’ve been adding material to since January 2001:

ANDY’S EARLY COMIC ARCHIVE

It was inspired by the mailing list ‘Platinum Comics’, which anyone seriously interested in the subject should join.

Reasons for creating this blog on top of my website:

1. it’s easier to quickly upload small bits of recently found or scanned comics

2. hopefully others will add useful information in the commentary

3. The large amount of material on the website may be seem forbidding. Subcribing to (or ‘following’) a blog – which I urge you to do – can provide more managable comic-historical nourishment.

4. worth a try

your humble servant,

Andy
