new research blog on Early Comics

Pascal does excellent work - this should be a good resource.

From: Pascal Lefèvre <>

Dear colleague,

If you're interested in early mass culture, there's a new blog <> that might interest you. I've just started my new Early Comics blog about my research into the comic strips before 1930. I'll deal also with relations between early comics and other media (as cinema).
